“Pop Style”-By Drake, Full Song!

“Pop Style”
(feat. The Throne)

[Intro: Drake]
Yeah, yeah[Hook: Drake]
Dropped outta school now we dumb rich, dumb rich
This sound like some forty-three-oh-one sh*t, one sh*t
All my ni**as wanna do is pop style, pop style
Turn my birthday into a lifestyle, lifestyle[Verse 1: Drake]
Tell my mom I love her if I do not make it, do not make it
Got so many chains they call me Chaining Tatum
They do, they do
And I like to finish what you think you started
Man you boys just got to Hollywood, you boys just started
You don’t know what you just started
All I do is hang with the young and heartless
All this is for my family, man, I try my hardest
It’s all I ever did and look where it got him
Yeah, you’ve been on my mind lately
You’ve still got my number, girl you need to call me
I feel like they wanna see me learn the hard way
But you know I always handle that one my way
Girl let me rock, rock, rock, rock, rock your body
Justin Timberlake and then I hit the highway
I can’t trust no f**kin’ body
They still out to get me cause they never got me[Verse 2: Kanye West & Jay-Z (as The Throne)]
They still out to get me, they don’t get it
I can not be got, and that’s a given
They like Pablo, “why are all the windows tinted on your Tahoe?”
Why do you know every single b**ch that I know?
Why can’t you just shut your mouth and take the high road?
F**k if I know, that’s that Chicago, aye
South, south, side, that’s the motto, aye
Cop a crib and spend ten million on remodel
Take the devils out my life and preach the gospel, cause I know
We went way, way past the line of scrimmage, aye
Throne is back up in it, aye
In the field like Emmitt, aye, y’all get so offended, aye
I be blacking out, I ain’t backing out
Jay about his business, and I’mma let you finish but I…
I just, I just, I just, I just wanna rock your body
Take you to the garage and do some karate
Chop it, chop it, chop it, chop it sipping sake
Throw a thick b**ch on a Kawasaki
(Perfect)[Hook: Drake]
Dropped outta school now we dumb rich, dumb rich
This sound like some forty-three-oh-one sh*t, one sh*t
All my ni**as wanna do is pop style, pop style
Turn my birthday into a lifestyle, lifestyle

Listen to the song “Pop Style” by Drake below:

Drake-“Controlla” featuring Popcaan and “These Days” Leaked

Two of Drake’s songs that will be in his future album, Views From the Six, titled “Controlla” and “These Days” have been leaked to the public this morning. Views From the Six is the most anticipated album to be planned to release to the public this Summer ’16.

Drake’s-“Controlla”featuring Popcaan is a down-tempo Caribbean jam. Drake uses a very subtle amount of Auto-Tune as he sings for a girl who attempts to control him by playing games. Nonetheless, we get a good feel for the song’s island-influenced 808’s and simple keyboard melody. Song can be found here.

Drake’s-“These Days”is a pop song that is a cover of Jackson Browne’s song “These Days”.

Fun Fact about Drake: His real name is Aubrey Graham.

 

 

Drake Announces “Views From The 6″Album Release Date

Although Drake didn’t share a specific release date for Views From The 6, he did announce that his much-anticipated project will in fact be released in April.

Yesterday (March 15), Drake uploaded a picture of a Views From The 6 billboard, and added the follow caption: “APRIL”.

This week’s announcement comes months after Drake rapped about possibly dropping Views From the 6 in January, on his “30 for 30 Freestyle.”

“But just know it’ll be January in no time,” Drake rapped on “30 For 30 Freestyle,” which was released last September.

Although an updated released date for Views From The 6 was just released, details on the album have continuously been offered thanks to those who have lent their assistance on the project or have ties to Drake.

We’ve seen billboards that hinted at an April release, but this is the first time we have anything official from Champagne Papi himself. Of course, we still don’t know WHEN in April the album drops, but we’ll have to be happy with what we get. It might be sooner rather than later, because Drake isn’t even living in the studio or anywhere in Toronto right now – he appeared last night as a gust during Rihanna’s Anti Tour, in Miami.

Singing, Sports, and Popular Culture are Related

In music it is very commonplace to use professional athletes in an artist’s song. Here are my Top 5 examples of how an athlete can have an impact on current popular culture at the time when a new song is being released.

5.  Jay-Z rapping about professional basketball players Lebron James and Dwyane Wade.

“City it’s a pity, half of y’all won’t make it
Me, I got a plug Special Ed “I Got It Made”
If Jeezy’s payin’ LeBron, I’m payin’ Dwyane Wade.” -(“Empire State of Mind”2009)

4. Kanye West rapping about professional basketball player Magic Johnson.

“Old folks talking about back in my day
But homey this is my day.
Class started 2 hours ago, oh am I late?
You know I already graduated
And you can live through anything if Magic made it.” -(“Can’t Tell Me Nothing”2007)

3. Drake rapping about professional basketball player Michael Jordan.

“Yeah, I learned the game from William Wesley
You can never check me
Back to back for the ni**as that didn’t get the message
Back to back like I’m on the cover of Lethal Weapon
Back to back like I’m Jordan ’96, ’97.” -(“Back to Back”2015)

2. The Fugees singing about professional boxer Mohammad Ali (Cassius Clay).

“I refugee from Guantanamo Bay
Dance around the border like I’m Cassius Clay.” -(“Ready or Not”1995)

1. Simon and Garfunkel singing about professional baseball player Joe DiMaggio.

“Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio,
Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.
What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson.
Jolting Joe has left and gone away,
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey.” -(“Mrs. Robinson”1968)
