In a 45-minute interview, Drake talked about his upcoming More Life playlist, his future in acting, dedicating his life to music, and a variety of topics.
When discussing More Life, Drake revealed that it’s actually a playlist he’s doing with Apple Music to bridge the gap between his major releases. “To keep people excited, give them new music, let them know I’m still hungry,” Drake said. Currently it is still unknown of when More Life will release but is going to be coming out soon. “I’m doing it to be remembered as a forward thinker. I want to be remembered… as an emotion-evoking artist,” he revealed.
Drake also touched on making sure he isn’t missing out on anything and that he is utilizing everything he can.
“At the end of the day, It’s all about the time you’re willing to put in. And, my biggest fear is always when I’m not doing it, there’s someone else that’s doing it. That’s my biggest fear in life. When I’m not doing it. When I take a night off for my personal life. When I choose to decompress or relax…not in the back of my mind, in the front of my mind, my biggest fear is if somebody’s not relaxing right now and they’re going to stumble upon something. When you get in the studio you have these moments that ultimately propel your career, you have to ask yourself how many of those did I miss by not going in on this given night or that given night. Because creating music is sometimes all about timing. It’s all about me texting this producer at this certain time… It is truly stars aligning, music is. And It’s scary to think of all the (opportunities) you miss because you didn’t sit in there. You know? So I try to not let myself have that fear.”
Drake is focused on a variety of things besides just only music, and spoke about his future in acting and how sports have an impact on his life. “Acting is another thing that I just can’t wait to really dive into, I think after I release More Life, which is this playlist I’m working on and finish this tour,” Drake revealed. “I think I’m going to really start to position myself in the acting world and, hopefully, take some great roles.”
We never know what role might land on Drake’s lap.
