You ready for some new music from Drake?! Listen to ‘Heat Of The Moment’ and ‘6 God’ below, which prove that the rapper is not slowing down any time soon.
Drake’s ‘Heat Of The Moment’ & ‘6 God’ Released From ‘Views From The 6’ — Listen
Click To Listen To ‘Heat Of The Moment’:
“Heat Of The Moment” is really interesting — in it, he raps about how kids don’t read anymore and how they just want to be like the rappers that Drake can’t stand. Drake lives in the moment, though, and when a woman asks him: “Who are you gonna be when it’s all over?” he raps that he just wants to live in, well, the heat of the moment, that he doesn’t have room in his head to think about heavy things when he doesn’t know how to settle down, nor does he understand unconditional love. You OK, Drake?

“6 God” is a little harder and easier to parse than “Heat Of The Moment”; lyrically, it’s just a reaffirmation of Drake’s commitment to his craft where other rappers have gotten big but lost it because they don’t want to do the work. Sure, he raps about love, but he puts the “money first, boy.” (Rihanna knows all about that!)
Drake decided to release the songs officially early not because they’re a part of some unannounced EP, but because he knew that hackers already had them. Here’s what he tweeted on Oct. 25:
That wasn’t an EP. Just 3 songs that I knew some hackers had. But enjoy! Back to this album.

Good for him for coming out ahead of a scandal like this! It’s so rude to leak music before the artist is ready for it to go live, honestly.
Drake’s ‘Views From The 6’ Has No Release Date
Prior to Drake releasing “Heat Of The Moment” and “6 God” on his own, “How Bout Now” was recently leaked.
Drake announced that his upcoming album would be titled Views From The 6, referencing his hometown of Toronto. However, a release date has not yet been set; when he made the announcement in July, he also said that he had yet to begin recording the album. Obviously, that’s now changed, and we can only hope that the rest of Views From The 6 will be as amazing as we’ve heard so far.
So, HollywoodLifers, which of Drake’s new songs do you like best — “Heat Of The Moment” or “6 God”? Or is it impossible to choose? Let us know!
