Drake earlier confirmed the final track list of the album on social media. “Summer Sixteen” is noticeably absent on the list. He released the track on OVO Sound in January just moments before confirming the April release of his new album. The song’s title also happens to be the name of his summer tour with Future, which begins in July.
Earlier this week, Drake announced his seventh annual OVO Fest in Toronto on July 29 to Aug. 1. He will also join “What a Time to Be Alive” collaborator Future on “Summer Sixteen Tour.”
According to Billboard, the rapper will also sit down with Zane Lowe for a special edition of the rapper’s weekly radio show OVOSOUND Radio. Drake described the event as a “MAJOR interview” and presumably stream the album in full.
Rolling Stone, however, reported that the interview time has been changed to 10:45 p.m. ET.
“Views From the 6” track list include Drake’s recently released songs “One Dance” featuring Wizkid and Kyla and “Pop Style” featuring Jay Z and Kanye West, who are billed together as the Throne, Rolling Stone wrote.
Drake’s 2015 smash hit “Hotline Bling,” a song he debuted during his radio show last summer amid his Meek Mill feud, is the album’s sole bonus track. Meanwhile, “Controlla” featuring Popcaan and “Faithful” featuring Pimp C, which Drake has not released officially but leaked online, are also included on the final tracklist.
“Views From the 6” will be officially released on Friday midnight (April 29) on iTunes and Apple Music and following its release, there will be a special Drake-related @AppleMusic Snapchat.
Meanwhile, the art cover of the album, which is Drake casually sitting on the edge of Toronto’s CN Tower, can now be added to any image.
