Drake Releases IYRTITL Bonus Cut
Nodding back to the sentimental aesthetic he originally became popular with, Drake released a bonus If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late cut early this week around the same time as his surprise kiss with Madonna at Coachella went viral. On the track Drake laments a broken-down and long-distance relationship, singing, “Why you never come to where I stay?”
The physical, collector’s edition of Drake latest album is set for release on Tuesday, April 21.
Yelawolf & Eminem Team Up On “Best Friends”
The only feature on Yelawolf’s sophomore album is his label-boss Eminem and the Alabama-native let loose the track earlier this week. With a show-stopping guest verse from Eminem in tow, Yela sings and raps about his faith, hardships, and growing up in the Bible Belt. For his part, Em gets fired up on the track with a blinding flurry of multi-syllable bars and references to his fallen friend and fellow rapper Proof.
