Drake – ‘Controlla’ ft. Popcaan and These Days Off Views from The 6


Drake Controlla ft Popcaan These Days Views From the 6A new era of Drake is upon us.

Drake hasn’t released any big singles ahead of his album “Views From The 6.” Unless you count ‘Summer Sixteen.’

But two new Drake tracks leaked this morning, which may or may not be apart of his new album.

Controlla” is a down tempo Caribbean jam. Drake used a very subtle amount of auto tune as he sings for a girl that continues to play games, almost controlling him (hence the name).

I’m guessing this isn’t the final CD quality, because the vocal mixing is pretty up and down throughout. But nonetheless we get a good feel for the song’s island-influenced 808s and keyboard melody.

“Them girls, they just wanna take my money
They don’t want me to give you nothing
They don’t want you to have nothing
They don’t wanna see me find your lovin’”

These Days‘ is a dreamy pop song. It’s a definite departure for Drake as he only sings on the track. It is a cover of a 1967 song by singer Nico, also titled ‘These Days,’ which you can listen to below.

“I’ve stopped the dreaming
I don’t do too much scheming these days
these days
I sit inside a chauffeur car with the windows down
and count the stars, these days”

These Days‘ will be released as part of a covers EP by Barf Troop’s Babeo Baggins. “Drake is a friend of mine,” she wrote to Pitchfork. “‘These Days’ is my favorite song in the world and I showed him the song because he had never heard it. He connected with it, which explains us doing the cover.”
