Here’s a quick rundown of our favorite’s from Drizzy’s latest.

“U With Me?”

“U With Me?” was produced by Noah “40” Shebib and Kanye West. The track features Drake rapping about keeping it real over a beat with a distorted bass drum. In the chorus Drizzy asks the listener, “Is you with me or what?” The rhetorical chorus will surely become a line fans throw down to show support of the Canadian rapper.

“Weston Road Flows” 

“Weston Road Flows” is a soulful R&B-infused track produced by Noah “40” Shebib. The song takes its name from a major road in west end Toronto. It is quintessential Drake, who reflects on his humble beginnings and his extraordinary rise to fame. He also shouts out to the Oklahoma Thunder and Vince Carter to keep up his reputation as a huge NBA fan.

“Too Good” (Featuring Rihanna)

“Too Good” has a tropical feel, which perfectly suits Ri-Ri. In the track produced by nineteen85 (who is also behind Drizzy’s “Hotline Bling”), Drake raps about treating his girl too well and how it backfires. Rihanna joins him for the nicely harmonized chorus: “I’m too good to you / I’m way too good to you / You take my love for granted / I just don’t understand it.”

“Grammys” (Featuring Future)

“Grammys” is a mid-tempo track that starts off with Drake and ends with a long verse from Future. The Atlanta MC laces his guest spot poking fun at his lack of Grammy nods. “They gonna think I won a Grammy / Sure enough they can’t stand me.”

“Views”

“Views” is the epic title track with an old school feel. Drake shines on the five-plus minute joint with some classic lines including: “You don’t worry about fitting in when you’re custom-made / Me and Nico used to plot on how to make a change / Now me and Kobe doing shots the night before the game / Still drop 40 with liquor in my system / Numbers going unlisted just to created some distance.” Drizzy also drops the line, “I keep it 100 like I got a fever / I might take a breather but I’ll never leave you / If I was you I wouldn’t like me either.”
