2. Drake releases his new 'playlist' album with an impressive list of collaborators
More Life got our grooves jumping from dancehall and grime to moody R&B beats. It's time to binge on the 22-song playlist.
3. Fans got confused as to whether Drake's Canadian or British
Despite More Life's impressive list of collaborators, Drake received backlash from his non-British (mostly American) fans for his excessive use of British slangs such as "ting".

4. Who knew we would see Gucci and memes in one sentence?
Ever so plugged in, Gucci launches a meme project, #TFWGucci, in collaboration with meme artists all over the world featuring Gucci timepieces.
#TFWGucci The new generation of future-forward Gulf creativity, @christto_andrew is a dynamic duo making eye-popping images from their studio in Doha, Qatar. Christto Sanz and Andrew Weir hail from Puerto Rico and South Africa, respectively, and came together in 2012 to collaborate on bold photography and moving images that challenge perceptions about the Middle East, blending traditional symbols with jewel-toned surrealism. For #TFWGucci, they introduce us to a mysterious fashionista who holds a flaming rose while she casually checks her #LeMarchédesMerveilles watch. In the words of the viral but never basic @beigecardigan, she’s just too fire to waste time. – Text by @newterritories Read more through link in bio.
#TFWGucci Goth Shakira @gothshakira is a Montreal-based artist whose Instagram meme account is inspired by Latin American style and queer culture. Mingling Spanish and English, Goth Shakira’s memes are collages with a message about feminism, freedom, and creativity. She consciously pushes the boundaries of memes into visual art, participating in panels and exhibitions that frame digital artifacts as just another, equally important part of physical culture. — @kchayka Discover more through link in bio.
