With immaculate vocal turns and sleek production, Views is Drake’s tour through the city that made him. A meticulous contrast to the off-the-cuff brilliance of recent mixtapes, he taunts adversaries with speaker-rattling anthems (“Hype,” “Still Here”), revisits his humble beginnings (“Weston Road Flows”), and rekindles the seductive chemistry with Rihanna (“Too Good”). Those extremes—the Caribbean warmth of “One Dance” and the icy lament of “Fire & Desire,” the unflinching vulnerability and unapologetic self-assurance—make Views a riveting victory lap from Toronto’s game-changing MC.
The Canadian rapper announced the launch on Instagram, where he shared an image of the album’s cover art, Drizzy himself sitting atop the CN Tower in Toronto, err…I mean, “The 6”.
Earlier this week, it was reported Drake’s upcoming Summer Sixteen Tour will be sponsored by Apple Music, with tickets on sale starting tomorrow.
