Netizens mock Drake's music
When you change your artistic direction, fans may have a hard time keeping up with you. The new sounds embraced by the artist obviously did not please everyone. To find out, just take a detour to Twitter. Fans agree that the tracks are utterly banal. A comparison that came up a lot, the background music of shopping malls. According to the twittos, the music of the fitting rooms of Zara or H&M have nothing to envy to the new project of Drake. When we know the artist’s career, the critics seem very harsh. To form your own opinion, the album is now available on streaming and download platforms.
