iLoveMakonnen drops new mixtape 'Drink More Water 5'

Posted on

Water seems to play a major role in the worldview of iLoveMakonnen, the eccentric viral rapper turned crossover pop star—thanks to the Drake-assisted version of his song “Tuesday” that made it all the way to number 12 on the Hot 100. When EW hung out with him during a Caribbean beach rave, he was in a cosmic mood and thinking out loud about starting his own bottled water company.

Today, he released his first complete post-“Tuesday” mixtape, Drink More Water 5. Available now as a stream, a conventional download, or a torrent, it features appearances by Migos, Fredo Santana, and Young Gleesh—and more importantl,y a generous amount of the positive iLoveMakonnen vibes that have made him as much of a cult leader as a budding pop star.

iLoveMakonnen kicks off his Loudest of the Loud tour in late April.
