2 new Drake songs leak online before being pulled
Controlla and These Days released online ahead of upcoming album Views from the 6
Two new Drake songs found their way online on Tuesday, but quickly disappeared from most popular streaming sites by Wednesday morning.
The second is a cover of Nico's 1967 song These Days. Pitchfork reports that the song, featuring rapper Babeo Baggins and alternately titled Things I Forgot To Do, isn't part of Drake's next album, but rather for Baggins' covers EP Love Songs For Tough Guys.
"Drake is a friend of mine," Baggins, a member of the Barf Troop rap crew, told Dazed. "These Days is my favourite song in the world and I showed him the song because he had never heard it. He connected with it, which explains us doing the cover."
These Days/Things I Forgot To Do can still be found on Baggins' Bandcamp page, but Controlla is more difficult to find online, as several uploads have been removed from sites like Soundcloud and YouTube.
Drake has so far made no comment about the tracks. His next album, Views from the 6, is due in April.
