It’s been almost two years since Drake dropped his album, Nothing Was The Same and though he dropped If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and WATTBA, since then, VIEWS is his first full length album in the last two years. And it’s finally here! Originally titled, Views From The 6, the album was debuted on OVO Radio and is now available to be streamed on Apple Music.
As previously noted, the album has 20 tracks on it and it includes features from Future, Rihanna, PND, Wizkid, Kyla, Pimp C, and dvsn. A good amount of features for the amount of tracks on the album. The album features production from 40, Kanye West, Southside, Metro Boomin, Cardo, and more.
As you all know, Drake will be hitting the road in support of this album along with Future. Tickets for the shows go on sale today and will probably sell out pretty quickly!
If you want to prepare yourself for the tour, you can stream VIEWS here. And while you’re listening check out some notable moments from Drake’s interview with Zane Lowe, according to Pigeons & Planes:
On Nicki Minaj:
“I don’t really talk to Nicki. I understand what love is, and I understand her situation. She dealt with me how I expected her to, with class.”
On collaborating with Kanye:
“We live up the street from each other. I’ll pull up at his house and see what he’s doing. We’ll just sit and collaborate, that’s what music is all about. ‘Ye is one of my favorite people. Period. In the world man. I love ‘Ye. I grew up with [Kanye] as a role model, he is a reason I am here right.”
“We were supposed to do a mixtape together or an album together.”
“This album is probably my highest level of vocal performance.”
“I was listening to Stevie Wonder “All I Do” and Alabama Shakes “Give Me All Your Love.”
“The album is based around the change of the seasons in our city. It starts out in the wintertime… That was what I used to tie it all together.”
“It was important to make the album here [in Toronto] during the winter.”
“It’s a constant stream of my emotions at this time, whether it be in love, in life, in this business.”
“I never set out with malicious intention, I’m just a really honest person…There’s some harsh truth on this album.”
“It wouldn’t be a record without Rihanna. We do well together as a team.”
“I’m trying to make music that transcends gender and nationality.”
