In more ways than one, Drake has effectively given the once boringly traditional medium of radio a much needed boost of urgency. Alongside an impressive lineup of other Apple Music emcees, the 6 God has once again made gathering around
the radio your iPhone a wholly necessary event.
In addition to sets by Oliver El-Khatib and DJ Esco and Metro Boomin's EscoBoomin, the mix also debuted new music. During Oliver's set, we got a remix of Jamie xx's "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)" with a verse by Skepta, and P. Reign's "Rich."
Despite rumors throughout the day, Drake did not debut his third diss track (“3Peat") to Meek Mill. As the clear victor of this beef, he’s off that and on to something else. There were more debuts during Esco and Metro’s set, where they premiered a Chief Keef song called “Roadrunner” that they’ve been teasing since last year.
Overall, OVO Sound Radio’s third episode was mellow in comparison to their other two. Although we didn’t get any new music from Drake this time around, it looks like they’ll be consistently giving us exclusives ever few weeks. Here’s the tracklists for both mixes below, and stay tuned for the full audio when it drops.
