UPDATE 7/11 9:00 P.M.: Listen to the full rip of the show below.
Beats 1 is becoming a big hit for Apple Music. After announcing radio shows by Dr. Dre, Q-Tip and Pharrell, as well as others like Jaden Smith's slot garnering a decent following, there's a lot of anticipation surrounding OVO Sound Radio's debut tonight. Without a doubt, it lived up to the hype.
The two-hour long program featured Drake and his OVO crew members hanging out and sharing some of their tunes. This time, it was OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib who started off the show with a mix of songs picked by him and Drizzy, followed by Austin producer Eric Dingus. Songs that were played show their eclectic taste and unique voice in music, ranging from Jack Ü's "Where Are You" with Justin Bieber to Meek Mill records off Dreams Worth More Than Money. They premiered exclusives as well: Drake appeared on remixes for Wizkid’s “Ojuelegba,” Ramriddlz’s “Sweeterman,” and Roy Wood$’ “Drama.” We also heard Majid Jordan’s “My Love” that debuted yesterday during his interview with Zane Lowe.
If you missed OVO Sound Radio, Oliver says that it will replay later this evening.
OVOSOUND RADIO Episode 1 will replay 3am PC. 6am EST. 11am UK.— Oliver El-Khatib (@OlivierElkhatib) July 12, 2015
