Drake’s “Madonna” off the hit mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late felt a little bit short at 2:58. And now we know why- there was an unreleased second verse!
Drake drops a solid verse here but it would be silly to question the decision to leave this verse off the tape. If You’re You’re Reading This It’s Too Late enjoyed massive success, both mainstream and critically. The cut that made it on the mixtape leaves the listeners wanting more, which is certainly not a bad thing.
For the moment, Drake holds the hip-hop crown. With Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West set to drop albums in the near future and Drake dropping an album of his own this year, Views From the 6, the conversation of hip-hop king will certainly be an interesting one in 2015.
