Black Coffee Will Be On Drake's Upcoming 'More Life' Mixtape

Drake's upcoming mixtape will feature a remix of Black Coffee's 2011 song "Superman."

Hearing is believing when it comes to Drake releases.


Last summer, it was rumored that everyone and their mom was going to be featured on his fourth studio album Views in the months leading up to its release, and his upcoming project, More Life, is currently the subject of speculation.

It's been rumored that acts from Skepta's Boy Better Know imprint will make appearances on the project, and while we're hoping that this is true, there's been no official conformation as of yet.

It has been confirmed, however, that a track by none other than superstar DJ Black Coffee, has made its way onto the track list.

Black Coffee announced the collaboration himself on Durban's East Coast Radio, where he spoke about Drake putting a remix of his 2011 track 'Superman" on his new mixtape.

“He is going to take the song to another level. People are going to love his version of the song but it won’t erase the original. People had mixed feelings‚ like ‘why would you give someone else your song? It is your song! Why are you letting them shine on the song?’ But my understanding is different. I would love for our music to be exported on that level‚” said the musician.

Last year, Drake played the track during an Apple music radio show highlighting his favorite songs and hinted at a remix in a series of Instagram videos featuring his publicity stunt bae, JLo.
