Drake added more fuel to the fire of speculations about the release date of his highly anticipated album, titled “Views from the 6.”
The rapper shared several photos on his Instagram account displaying him and his colleagues working in a studio.
It has also been rumoured the photos were intentionally posted to raise attention that the album is still in the works and may be nearing completion, Ecumenical News wrote.
However, the move to intensify the hype somehow backfired when no “Views from the 6” was nowhere to be found last January 6, Billboard noted.
Perhaps Drake has good reasons for all the teasing and the delays.
It seems that the rapper or someone close to him has leaked the track list to the public, Inquisitr.com reported. Drake and his camp have yet to confirm if the track list posted by Social Couture is correct.
Since it’s already made-public, here’s the leaked track list of “Views from the 6” shared by Social Couture.
- “Paris Morton Music 3”
- “Sound/Flow Through” feat. Popcaan
- “One in a Million” feat. Kanye West
- “Can I” feat. Beyonce
- “The Grace” feat. Beyonce
- “11 p.m. in Scarborough”
- “Mind Over Matter” feat. Rick Ross and Future
- “Smeared” feat. Justin Bieber
- “Hotline Bling”
- “2 Strategical”
- “Crossed the Line”
- “No Need” feat. Lil Wayne
It also added three more songs to the list, as follows:
- “6ix Lights/You and the 6”
- “The Vital”
- “Ending Sequence”
Inquisitr noted that one reason for the delay in the album release was that Drake he doesn’t want the track to be released under Cash Money Records.
Meanwhile, “Views from the 6” is expected to hit record stores on Feb. 15 – just around the time of the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.
The song, “You & the 6,” from the same album has a very special place in Drake’s heart. It is the story of his life, the journey of his career and his message of forgiveness for his father who abandoned him, Inquistr noted.
