Drake is currently hosting his own OVOSOUND Radio station as he and Oilver El-Khatib takeover Episode 14 alongside fellow OVO rising artist Majid Jordan.
On this episode he’s just unleashed “Summer Sixteen” as the first single off his much anticipated forthcoming album Views From Six, and has just announced we can expect the album this April! The new track is an eerie, trappy hip hop beat that switches up halfway through with a new menacing melody with harder kicking drums while Drake goes hard in some ferocious verses boasting his success and sings he’s “looking for revenge all summer 16.” Stream below and stay tuned for more info on his album.

Rihanna has finally released the highly anticipated collaboration with Drake, "Work" days before the Friday release of her latest studio album, Anti. The album also features previously surfaced singles "Bitch Better Have My Money", "FourFiveSeconds", and "American Oxygen".
The song features some relatively minimal production from Boi-1da that lets Rihanna's maintain the focus with Drake's verse completing it. Listen below and enjoy!

A$AP Rocky is fresh off an exceptional year with the release of his 3rd studio album At.Long.Last.A$AP and a Best Music Video grammy nod for the ultra trippy "LSD." Now as he gears up to celebrate the first annual A$AP Yams Day–a tribute to the recently deceased A$AP Yams– on Jan. 18th in New York, Rocky blesses us with his newest track called "Yamborghini High." We first heard the track at his show in Hong Kong at Clockenflap Fest back in November, today though we have the official cut, featuring fellow A$AP Mob affiliates A$AP Nast and A$AP Ferg.
Rocky also premiered his remix of Drake's "Wu Tang Forever" over on OVO Sound Radio. He's finally decided to drop the song after having it sit in the vault since 2014. On it, A$AP hops on the beat and adds his own east-coast swagger. Keeping some of Drake's vocals, Rocky throws in his hard-hitting flow and down-pitched adlibs we've come to love. We can also expect to hear his upcoming album Cozy Tapes later this year. Enjoy the two new tracks below and stay tuned for more information about Cozy Tapes!

The electronic music festival cruise with over 4,000 people we've written about quite a few times known as Holy Ship! tends to be full of a lot of incredible "had to be there" moments from once in a lifetime B2B sets, surprise guests, DJs playing in elevators and more. Well on the January cruise that just commenced last weekend, third year attendee GRiZ decided to help close out the weekend following his 2 sets by doing something unique. He started a pied piper march of artists (including the ODESZA horn players) and ship attendees from one side of the ship to the other playing "When The Saints Came Marching In"
Then once he arrived in his destination which was the ship's buffet cafeteria he then performed a horn only cover of Drake's "Hot Line Bling" with help from the horn players from ODESZA's live band. It ends with a crowd of people the gathered chanting "HOLY SHIP! HOLY SHIP! HOLY SHIP!"
It captures the craziness, breakdown of barriers between artist and fan, and overall vibe of the unique experience that is Holy Ship!.
This was also a throwback to when he first did this stunt with Skrillex 2 years on the ship playing the Sexy Saxyman melody.
