Drake Channels Rihanna, Jackson Browne On New Songs

(Radio.com) From the sounds of it, Rihanna appears to have quite the influence on Drake. Even though she denied rumors they were dating, one of two new Drake tracks that surfaced reveals a definite island influence to his music.

"Controlla" (feat. Popcaan) sounds like a sister song to Rihanna's "Work," both in terms of beat and melody. On the song, Drake sings about how much he cares for a girl, going so far as to take more control in the bedroom because she asks. Popcaan adds an auto tuned reggae feel in between Drake's verses.

On the other end of specturm, Drake covered the Jackson Browne classic "These Days." According to Pitchfork, "These Days" is for a cover album and won't end up on Drake's latest project. Read more here.
