Teen Review: Scary Hours EP – Drake
Review by Stephon, Dufferin Youth Advisory Group member.
Fans of Toronto artist Drake were surprised when he released a two-track extended play titled Scary Hours.
The first track, and the clear radio driven hit, “God’s Plan” is a huge chart topper. It became the 29th song of all time to debut at #1 of the Billboard Hot 100. The song’s message shares the idea of being thankful for everything that you own, and not to take things you own for granted. In the music video of the song, Drake hands out money and gifts to fans who’ve been through hard times. I think it’s a great, catchy song. Drake is known for being a hit making machine, and this is another one.
The second song on the EP is “Diplomatic Immunity.” This track was more of an attack on those who critique Drake’s music. He also makes note of his competition in music. I like Drake’s rapping ability on this song, which shows off his overall rap skill. It shows that he not only has the ability to make hit songs, he can also rap very well. Hopefully these two songs are the first of many from Drake for the year of 2018.
