Ultimate Music are reporting that they’re getting back together for a new single. Not sure why we need a Drake feature when he’s meant to be starting his own album era soon but ok, I just hope it’s better than their previous collabs which I wasn’t so keen on.

I don't like DJ Khaled. As a producer I think he's alright but his insistence on being in every music video just to stand around awkwardly and pose is really irritating.

His contribution is more than that... don't forget him shouting "we the best music... another one... DJ Khaled" at the start of every song biggrin.gif

He doesn't actually produce most of 'his' songs lol ~ his role is more of a promoter / PR guy than an actual musician.

He sounds like a different person on Greece I had to double check there wasn’t a feature on there laugh.gif . Both songs are bops though .

Unlike some other members here, I don't dislike it by default just because it's Drake (or rap in general) but "Greece" sounds really bad, I don't get why is his voice so high pitched. "Popstar" is quite good though

I think these are both quite good and both sound like potential growers. Not actually sure which of the two I prefer yet!

I do think 'GREECE' would easily be my fave of the two if he got The Weeknd to actually be on it rather than Drake doing a blatant impersonation of him laugh.gif

Popstar US #3
Greece US #8

And with those two Drake finally has 40 top 10 hits, that is 2 more than Madonna! cheeseblock.png

clap.gif of course Drake had to gain that record in style getting 2 debuts at once x

(with a few more listens I have decided that 'GREECE' is defo my fave of these two but both of them have grown on me more, I like both quite a bit x)

I feel like most people thought ‘Popstar’ would be the one to take off more out of the 2 songs but so far it’s actually ‘Greece’ doing better !

That surprises me as GREECE sounds far far more commercial sounding! I do prefer it so happy it's fallen that way round.

I've grown to much prefer 'Greece' now too, mostly thanks to it actually having a melody.

'POPSTAR' is still the bigger hit in the US though. I guess because it's more rap oriented (kind of ironic given the title that it's the less poppy of the two lol) which does better in the US than the UK.

POPSTAR music video starring Bieber:



I'm actually really liking this and the video is fun (if not taken too seriously)

The video is great and I still like the track, don't understand how "Greece" has more success. I laughed at Bieber's ringtone being a midi version of Baby laugh.gif
