Drake's 'More Life' Shatters Ed Sheeran's Spotify Records

Jennifer Lopez gushes about Marc Anthony on Live with Kelly doesn't even mention Alex Rodriguez

Drake's 'More Life' Shatters Ed Sheeran's Spotify Records

The Canadian rapper, who released his new album, "More Life", on Saturday, copped to texting Jenny from the Block.

Drake finally debuted his long-awaited project "More Life", which he said is strictly a playlist, not an album.

And then there's "Fake Love", More Life's lead single, which takes aim at the people who only want to be around for his fame.

Watch the fantastic first episode of SportsJOE Live with Ronan O'Gara, Andy Reid, Dion Fanning and Colm Parkinson here.

DRAKE's album totalled a remarkable 61,302,082 streams on its first full day (MARCH 19th) topping previous record-holder ED SHEERAN's "Divide", which racked up 56,727,861 streams on MARCH 3rd.

Originally announced in October a year ago (16), the Hotline Bling hitmaker said More Life would be released at the end of February, however following months of delays and speculation, Drake finally revealed the official release date earlier this month. Fans have been waiting patiently ever since.

While Drake dishes on his fling with Jennifer Lopez in More Life, take a look at his wild romantic timeline between him and Rihanna in the video below.

(Drake has also partnered with Apple on this release, something that Chance revealed last week made him $500,000) More Life falls under whatever Drake means by a "Playlist".

Drake is highly self-aware.

Drizzy's Afro Beat infusion on More Life, specifically on "Blem", was well received by listeners. At night I pray it's true. London emcee Giggs is the gritty, bar-spitting core of both "No Long Talk" and the bruising "KMT", while the up-and-coming Brit Skepta gets an entire "Interlude" to himself. Jorja Smith's soulful vocals glide across two early tracks, one of which is elevated by the presence of South African house whiz Black Coffee.

Surprisingly, it may be Drake's fascination with United Kingdom grime that stands out most on "More Life".

Online reaction to the playlist has been generally enthused with many pointing to the noticeable inclusion of British rap artists alongside familiar USA collaborators such as Kanye West.
