Drake’s “Controlla” With Popcaan and “These Days” Leak
"These Days" is actually a Drake feature for a Babeo Baggins song called "Things I Forgot To Do." You can hear the full version below.
Late last night (March 28), the internet began talking about a couple new Drake snippets that made their way to the internet. Those snippets were "Controlla" featuring OVO's resident dancehall artist Popcaan and "These Days." Though both leaks have been yanked from YouTube and Soundcloud, you can still hear both songs below or right here.
The Popcaan collab "Controlla" sounds heavily influenced by Caribbean music, as some fans have even gone so far as to call it an unofficial sequel to Rihanna's "Work." It sounds like it could work as a single, seeing how big Rih's track got, but the fact that it has now been leaked might throw a wrench in that imagined plan.
Drake's been hard at work on his next studio album, Views From the 6. He's planning on dropping it at some point in April, but according to a new lawsuit by Lil Wayne against Universal Music, the label Drake is releasing his next album on might still be up in the air, as Young Money's contract with Cash Money Records expired in June of 2015. Nonetheless, Drake's latest single "Summer Sixteen" was released under CMR.
Just days away from the start of April, it feels like Drake is on the verge of rolling the album out. Considering he's featured on one of the biggest songs in the world with "Work," it makes sense that he'd take advantage of all the attention. Whether we'll see final, official versions of either above leaks remains to be seen, but we're about to find out in the next couple weeks.
