It was recently confirmed that The Weeknd will feature on Drake’s ‘More Life’ project.
Fans have noticed that Drake’s iTunes artist bio has been changed, revealing more details about his imminent “playlist project”. The new copy details last year’s ‘Views’ album before discussing ‘More Life’.
“Late that year, Drake issued another trio of singles – including the chart-topping ‘Fake Love’ – that heralded the release of his next full-length More Life, which included collaborations with Nineteen85, The Weeknd and Maneesh Bidaye, as well as Boi-1da,” it reads, as High Snobiety reports.
Drake said on stage in Leeds in February that ‘More Life’ would be finished in two weeks.
