Two new Drake songs have been leaked online. Could these tracks be from the rapper’s yet-to-be-released album, “Views from the 6?”
The tracks, “These Days” and “Controlla,” found their way online earlier this week. Everyone presumed they are leaks from the rapper’s upcoming album. But, according to High Snobiety, “These Days” is just a track Drake did in collaboration with artist Babeo Baggins. The song is a “partial cover” of German pop star Nico’s 1967 song, “These Days.” But “These Days” reportedly isn’t even the real title of Baggins’ song with Drake. Its actual title is “Things I Forgot To Do.” The track is part of Baggins’ EP “Love Songs For Tough Guys.”
Hot New Hip Hop calls the track a “definite departure for Drake.” The Canadian rapper only sings on the track. “Things I Forgot To Do” is also not a “bedroom jam like so many of his [previous] songs.”
Check out notable lyrics for “Things I Forgot To Do” below.
Yeah, I had a lover.
Don’t think I’d risk another.
And if I seem to be afraid.
Just listen to the life I’ve made in songs.
I’ve stopped the dreaming.
I don’t do too much scheming.
I sit inside chauffeur car,
With windows down and count the stars.
Meanwhile, “Controlla” features dancehall artist Popcaan. The track has a “downtempo Caribbean” vibe as the rapper seems to sing for a girl trying to control him.
And here is the notable lyrics for “Controlla” below.
Them girls, they just wanna take my money
They don’t want me to give you nothing
They don’t want you to have nothing
They don’t wanna see me find your lovin’

“Controlla” has been deleted from SoundCloud. “Views From the 6” is due for release in April.
