No official release date has been announced yet, but Pitchfork reports that the album will come out at the end of the month. The “Hotline Bling” singer revealed in January that the album would arrive sometime in April and it appears as though he’s sticking to his word.
So far the rapper has released three songs off of “Views from the 6.” Drake dropped “Summer Sixteen” in January, along with the announcement of when the new album would arrive. He released two more singles on iTunes Tuesday, called “Pop Style” and “One Dance.”
“Pop Style” became a highly talked about song following its release. The track also features The Throne, a.k.a. Jay-Z and Kanye West. While West brought back up his 2009 MTV Video Music Award moment with Taylor Swift, Drake dropped a line about actor Channing Tatum, saying “Got so many chains they call me Chaining Tatum.”
The verse got many people talking on Twitter and even captured the attention of Tatum’s wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum. She responded to the verse by posting a throwback photo of her husband on Instagram. You can see the photo below:
Rumors started to circulate on Wednesday after The Fader reported that Drake had released the “Views From the 6” artwork with an image projected onto the side of London's Royal Opera House. However, it was just a reminder of the album’s release and not the actual cover.
Although many are waiting for “Views From the 6,” Drake has been treating his fans to plenty of new music since his last studio album, 2013’s “Nothing Was The Same.” The 29-year-old rapper has released two mixtapes over the past year, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,” and “What A Time To Be Alive.” He also dropped a few singles, including the hit track “Hotline Bling” and the Meek Mill diss “Back to Back.”
