Drake’s ‘More Life’ Playlist Will Not Be an Apple Exclusive
Drake’s More Life “playlist” is finally dropping on Saturday and in a bit of extra interesting news, it won’t be an Apple exclusive.
Drake’s Views was available exclusively on Apple as was his collaboration with Future, What A Time to Be Alive, for a while. However, PItchfork confirms that Amazon Music will have the project available at the same time as the Apple release. Spotify also tweeted the the trailer from the project, although the streaming service has not offered a statement about the project’s availability on its platform, only saying that it’s “coming soon.”

This news is significant as the industry has struggled with whether or not artists should offer projects exclusively through particular streaming services, such as Apple or Tidal. Some insiders argue that it hurts the consumer. Others say that these deals empower the artists.
At any rate, Drake’s latest will be available tomorrow.. everywhere, apparently.
