While talking about his music career, Drake remarked: “I'm sure I'll stop [making music] one day.” He continued, “When it starts to feel like I'm making it up. Hopefully I'll catch it before I ever get there, right? But right now it feels like we just started, so I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. But I do plan on expanding—to take six months or a year to myself and do some great films. Music's always there.”

With these new songs and a possible album on the way, it doesn't seem like Drake will stop making music anytime soon.

XXXTentacion Builds Hype for Debut Album With 2 New Songs

As fans get closer to the Aug. 25 release date of XXXTentacion’s debut album 17, the South Florida rapper wanted to give them something special. Over the weekend, he shared two tracks—“Ok Shorty!” and “In the End”—that tease the sonic direction of his project.

Or, maybe not? X made sure to write a disclaimer before anyone pressed play: “Don’t worry this is not what my album sounds like lol.” Instead, fans will have to go with his earlier words that 17 is an album that’s “for the depressed ones, for the lost ones.” Earlier snippets displayed a more melancholic sound, and he also previewed a collaboration with Trippie Redd titled “Fuck Love.”

These tracks are roughly two minutes long, but possess X’s infectious energy that you’ve seen before if you watched him perform live. “OK Shorty!” has a Ski Mask the Slump God vibe, with him repeating the refrain “OK Shorty!” several times. “In the End”—not to be confused with Linkin Park’s classic record—​is sorrow-filled as X contemplates about love. “In the end, I won’t run, I won’t hide/It’s too late I won’t stare at the altar,” he sings.

Two different sounds from X. Which one are you feeling more? Check them out below.
