Preme (formerly P. Reign) releases his album debut, Light of Day
Toronto rapper and MMVA-winner Preme (formerly known as P. Reign) has released his studio album debut, Light of Day.
The 15-track project features several high profile features including Offset of Migos, Post Malone, Ty Dolla $ign, YG, and Canadian hit-making crooner, PartyNextDoor. It also features the Lil Wayne-assisted “Hot Boy,” which dropped about a month ago and has been viewed over 1.5 million times since.
While the project is already getting a lot of well-deserved positive feedback, there is some chatter about a noticeably absent guest appearance: Preme’s friend and previous collaborator (“DnF“), Drake (over 48 MILLION VIEWS since it dropped in 2014!).
But Drake not being on the project doesn’t speak to the status of his relationship with the Reps Up artist. There could be plans for Drake to appear on Preme’s next project, or perhaps they did a track and it just didn’t make the cut. That is a possibility.
Really, there’s no shortage of reasons why Drake isn’t on there, but don’t let his absence take away from a quality album that Preme should be proud of; absolutely a wall slapper, through and through.
On top of that, Drake took to Instagram early this morning to show the release some love: “My brother just dropped his album available on all platforms now!!!”
Of course, even that post lead some of Drake’s followers questioning why he wasn’t featured on the project. But the fact that he made a post about at all – which has 341,246 likes in 9 hours – is a huge look for Drake and gives Light of Day a nice promotiononal boost.
Light of Day brings a dope lineup of producers to the table including Murda Beatz, Pro Logic, Dez Wright, CuBeatz, and DJ Mustard.
Preme spoke to HotNewHipHop about the meaning of the project and what he hoped to achieve with it:
“I feel like theres always so much gaps and holes poked into my story because theres always such a disconnect. The fact that I wasn’t able to travel so long. Name change, so many things. I really wanted to try to use this album to help tell that story.”
