Drake teases new music with cryptic Swedish Instagram message
Drake may have a special surprise for fans this weekend: the rapper posted and then quickly deleted a message written in Swedish to Instagram that seems to announce the release of new music.
According to a screenshot of the note from Complex, Drake’s post on Friday night featured a scrap of paper with the message, “Om du över sätter det här är det försent.” He’s currently in Sweden on the Boy Meets World Tour, and the words roughly translate, “If you’re reading/translating this, it’s too late.”
It’s likely a reference to the 2015 mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, but the note continued at the bottom with “More Life, March 4, 2017.” (Psst! That’s today.)
More Life is the name of a playlist Drake had previously said would drop in December.
“I’m off like mixtapes, I want to do a playlist,” he said in October. “I want to give you a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life, so this More Life: The Playlist. Like I said, dropping in December. All original music from me. You might hear some tunes from the family on there, but I’m just really excited. I had a great tour, I had a great summer. And most people, I guess, would like go probably take a break. But for me I just want to get right back to it. Be with the people again.”
Drake’s Instagram bio now reads simply, “MORE LIFE.” As some have pointed out, the artist’s description on iTunes mentions Nineteen85, the Weeknd, Maneesh Bidaye, and Boi-1da are featured on the playlist, as well.
So, stay sharp!
