Drake and Kanye show us what could have been on their “More Life” collab.
“We the new Abu Dhabi” raps Kanye during his appearance on Drake’s new More Life playlist. Without prior knowledge, it might seem like a run-of-the-mill Kanye brag, however those who follow Drake and Kanye’s moves closely will recognize it as a phrase from their mysterious Billboard in L.A.
“Calabasas is the new Abu Dhabi” read the sign, inspiring fans to speculate that it could be the title of Drake and Kanye’s teased joint album. From the sounds of Drizzy’s recent interview with DJ Semtex, that project may not surface anytime soon, yet this newly released record hints at what could have been. The two borrow Chief Keef’s “GLO Up” phrase for the sparse, melodic duet.
Kanye is one of many features on Drake’s highly collaborative playlist, which was released Saturday night. Stream the album, which includes guest appearances from Travis Scott, Sampha, 2 Chainz, Quavo, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and more.
