NEW MUSIC: Drake ‘Days In The East’


In the wee hours of Thursday morning, Drake released his second song in two days, “Days in the East.”

On Tuesday the Canadian-rapper released “Draft Day,” in which he  samples Lauryn Hill’s “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” and name-checks major league athletes and artist in the up-tempo track.

Now, Drake has followed that release with a change of the pace in “Days in the East.”

In the song, Drake raps about a rekindled romance with someone: “Back up in this thang, it’s a go/ Had a couple ni–as out of pocket, now they know/ Ain’t the first time ’cause I lost you before/ Had to get it back,” Drake raps.

“Waitin’ on you to give in and hit me up/So I could fall through like old times and hit it up,” he says elsewhere on the track.

The song even includes background vocals pulled directly from Rihanna’s song “Stay.”

Is it safe to say that Drake is alluding to his romance with Rihanna?

No word yet on if both “Draft Day” and “Days in the East” will appear on a future album,  but according to Billboard, when he let loose the latter track while in the U.K., he announced that he has a new album in the works.
