After a much longer wait than many of us expected, Drake‘s twenty-track project, Views, is here for our listening pleasure courtesy of OVO Sound Radio.
For a while, it felt like Views From The 6 would be on the way forever. We witnessed drama over the murky origins and inspirations behind “Hotline Bling,” and then saw Erykah Badu remix it. We saw Drake rack up “Back to Back” victories over Meek Mill and somewhat quiet the continued complaints about his alleged use of ghostwriters in the process.
We enjoyed Future and Drake’s easily digestible collaborative effort, What A Time To Be Alive. We envied Drake’s literal position next to Rihanna in the “Work” video. These are but a few of the headlines Drake found himself involved in since the approach of this album was announced, but suffice it to say that he’s been all over the place.
It would seem that tonight is finally the night. Views is a twenty-track project including guest features from Future, Rihanna, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Pimp C, Popcaan, Mary J. Blige, and DVSN. Production comes from a similarly stacked roster of Noah ’40’ Shabib, Boi-1da, DJ Dahi, Kanye West, and others.
