    Drake - "Energy"

    Lately, I've heard a lot of talk about whether or not Drake is going to fall off soon. It seems like he's already becoming a meme-able version of himself, and his rising status as a pop culture celebrity has to be distracting to his creativity. But a funny thing happens every time Drake drops new music—everyone seems to stop questioning him. Drake has a way of shutting people up, addressing the shit that's on everyone's mind, surrounding himself with people who make sure he's keeping things fresh, and sharpening his skills.

    His latest mixtape (or whatever you want to call it, because it's not free). If You're Reading This, It's Too Late isn't a typical mixtape. It's got original production, big features, and an album feel to it. That just makes us all the more eager for Views From The 6. We're still taking this one in, but after a couple of listens, "Energy" is an early standout.—Confusion
