Drake has been teasing his upcoming album, “Views From the 6,” for months now, but the main question when can we finally have it?
Here’s everything that we know so far about “Views From the 6.”
Drake ended all speculation when he announced on his label’s Beats 1 show OVORadio the release date of his album.
“I get to answer the question that people have been asking me for a very long time. I’m happy to let you know that ‘Views…’ is dropping 29th April.” So, the much-awaited “Views From the 6” will be released finally on Friday (April 29).
According to NME, “Views From The 6” will be released first on Apple Music and it will be housed in there as an exclusive for one week.
There have been rumours that the Canadian singer will be releasing two albums in one. One disc would be called “WHITE,” while the other would be called “BLACK.”
The “Hotline Bling” singer also dropped an album trailer on Twitter.
The album includes collaborations with several artists including Jay-Z, Kanye West, and more.
“Views From the 6” will also include the track “Summer Sixteen.” It was earlier reported that the song is about NBA MVP Stephen Curry. In the song, Drake claimed that the Golden State Warriors run practice in his backyard. But it was later revealed that it was only Curry who played basketball with the rapper at his house.
Artwork of “Views From the 6” popped up in major cities around the world including in London, New York City and in Drake’s hometown, Toronto.
The singer also dropped the official artwork for the album recently at the CN Tower.
Definitely yes, Drake will have a tour.
Billboard reported that Drizzy seems to be joining by Future for a string of 2016 dates dubbed as “Summer Sixteen Tour.”
Billboard cited a web page that was temporarily live on Live Nation. Before the event page has been removed, it listed only one tour stop – Detroit on Aug. 16 – and both names of Drake and Future were in the lineup. A four-and-a-half day countdown until tickets go on sale the morning of April 29 was included, Billboard noted.
Drizzy also teased “Summer Sixteen Tour” on Twitter.
According to NME, Drake would be setting out on a North American tour with his “What A Time To Be Alive” partner Future.
The tour will kick off in July and ends on September.
