He then played three songs — Two Birds One Stone, Sneakin',and Fake Love — and a previously unreleased remix of Santan Dave's Wanna Know on the program he hosts on the Apple Music streaming service.

Sneakin' and Fake Love are both available on Spotify and Apple Music. 

"I want to give you a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life," he said. 

Drizzy also announced plans for a new music project titled More Life in December.
