Below is the official artwork for Drake’s Views From the 6 album dropping on Friday!
Through some Twitter invesigating and Snapchat watching, here’s what we know so far about Views and this week’s Drake takeover aka the Drakeover.
- We were just blessed with the album artwork for Views From the 6. He announced it on the Beats by Dre Snap earlier at the Views pop-up shop in Toronto. And yes, he being Drake. There have been other pop-ups in the cities of New York, Miami, LA, Palm Springs, and tonight Toronto. It makes sense he made an appearance in Toronto with the sole focus of this album being his hometown. What do you think of the artwork? I like it. It’s an actual photograph with Drake sitting atop the CN Tower. It shows his true passion and dedication to his city.
- While there are no dates out yet, it’s being reported Drake and Future are going on tour together this “summer ’16.” I mean. I need floor seats to this. Serious.
I’ll keep yinz posted on tour dates and ticket info as I learn more!As promised, below are the tour dates for Drake’s “Summer Sixteen Tour” featuring Future, Roy Woods, and dvsn.
- And another announcement made by Drake this morning was the lineup and dates for the 7th Annual OVO Fest! It’s a little earlier this year (end of June) but it features freaking Wiz and Snoop. You can definitely expect many people to pop up. I swear one year I WILL make it to this!
- According to Drake, Views will have TWENTY tracks. That’s a full album for real! I keep hoping the album doesn’t have an island sound like the songs ‘Controlla’ and ‘One Dance.’ While I like those songs, I don’t think an entire album of that sound will sit well with fans. But after seeing this artwork, I don’t think we have anything to worry about. By the simple looks of this album, it’s going to have that true Drake sound we all know and love. Again, these are just my thoughts and observations.
