Over the weekend, rapper Drake released his highly-anticipated "playlist," More Life, on OVO Sound Radio.

The whopping 22-track, genre-rich album attributes trap, dancehall, grime and afrobeat influences and features an all-star roster of features and contributions from artists such as Young Thug, Kanye West and OVO label mate, PartyNextDoor. More Life takes its name from the colloquial Jamaican term used to give well wishes to someone, to which the rapper describes the project as, "a playlist to give you a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life." The album encompasses a number of samples from classic songs by Earth, Wind & Fire, as well as a Stevie Wonder harmonica sample from the rapper's "Doing It Wrong" 2011 tune. With popular hits such as R&B hit, "Fake Love" and dancehall tune "Madiba Riddim," the playlist also gives significant exposure to rising UK grime artists, Skepta and Giggs.

More Life is sure to become a staple summertime smash and has already provided us with plenty of caption-worthy Instagram quotes.
