Drake and Future have released the anticipated, What a Time to Be Alive. The duo has collaborated in the past, but this is the first full album the two have recorded together. When the Toronto star teamed up with Future, it was no surprise the dual efforts, according to fans, created a unique sound.
Drake adds to this mix and even those who are not Future fans, may enjoy and appreciate their distinctive music. This is another collection of songs by Drake, his fans can appreciate as they await his new album, Views from the 6.
What a Time to Be Alive, according to Drake and Future, had a great production team. Fans may question, why Drake teamed up with Future when he could have chosen anyone for this collaboration; for instance, someone who is more on his level, such as J.Cole. Instead, Drake chose to work with Future.
What a Time to Be Alive landed the number two spot in its first week. The album may not have sold as well as expected, but it has done well on the charts and continues to keep Drake on top.
Some may say this album is just another way to complete his contract with his current label, Cash Money. There have been plenty of rumors about the Cash Money and Young Money production agencies, such as Lil Wayne’s, The Carter V album being held up by Cash Money and Universal due to rumors about Drake and Nicki Minaj.
However, Drake continues to make hit music that often tops the Billboard Charts. He recently became the fourth artist to score 100 billboard hot 100 hits.
What a Time to Be Alive is available worldwide. Views from the 6 will be available soon.
