Review: Drake – ‘Summer Sixteen’


Whilst the song isn’t his best, it is certainly a firm basis for his aims of a musical takeover in the summer.

At long last Drake has released his first single from his forthcoming album Views From the 6.

Scheduled to be released in April of this year, ‘Summer Sixteen’ gives audiences a tease of what to expect from the new album.

The track is split into two, with a darker, punchier beat in the latter and in the former, a continuation of the feud between him and Meek Mill, declaring “you don’t have to try to say it louder nigga trust, we heard you the first time”, which is a stab at Mill’s rapping style that sounds like he’s in the back of a car trying to order food at a McDonald’s Drive-Thru. The hook will have you singing ‘looking for rev-e-e-e-e-e-nge’ for days, reminding you of why you got into Drake in the first place: for his melodic raps about ex-girlfriends.

Since the release of If You’re Reading This Its Too Late, the Toronto rapper has been teasing audiences with material for more than a year. From Grammy nominated diss tracks aimed at Meek Mill, to collaborative work with Future in the rather disappointing album What a Time to be Alive, ‘Summer Sixteen’ stands as a track that fans can get truly excited about.
