The US rapper hosted the OVO Sound Radio show on Beats 1
Drake hosted the first half of the OVO Sound Radio show on Beats 1 last night (June 4) and premiered a couple of new tracks while he was there.
The Canadian rapper officially premiered the Justin Bieber remix of his UK number one single ‘One Dance’, which Bieber performed live at a party in Monaco last month.
Drake ended his broadcasting stint with his brand new track, ‘4pm in Calabasas’, but during the two-hour show also played Gucci Mane’s latest song ‘Back On the Road’ and a new Wizkid track, which is simply listed as “new Wizkid”.
You can hear snippets of the tracks below, or listen to the full show on the OVO Sound Radio website. The Bieber ‘One Dance’ remix comes in at 42:55, while ‘4pm in Calabasas’ can be heard at 53:30.
Drake’s single ‘One Dance’, which features Nigerian musician Wizkid and British singer Kyla, is the the longest-reigning chart topper since Rihanna‘s ‘Umbrella’, which spent a mammoth 10 weeks at number one when it was released in 2007.
Drake’s fortunes didn’t quite extend to the album charts, when latest record ‘Views’ was knocked from the top spot by Ariana Grande‘s new album ‘Dangerous Woman’, even though ‘Views’ broke streaming records in the first three weeks it had been on sale, beating the record of 115 million streams set by Beyonce in the first week that her album ‘Lemonade’ was released in April.
