Drake’s album “Views From the 6” is just weeks away from being released and the Toronto, Canada, native has been hard at work promoting it anyway he can. After unveiling visuals in London on April 6, the rapper turned to social media.
Video pulled from a Snapchat account seemingly belonging to the “Summer 16” crooner surfaced on Twitter Tuesday. In it he can be seen looking into the forward facing camera while pretending to be one of his cousins from Memphis, Tennessee. He is heard saying how anxiously he awaits the release of “Views From the 6,” which is slated to be made available for purchase April 29. Drake, 29, has applied several filters to the short video, making the bottom portion of his face appear exaggerated and changing the overall color.
“Hey Drake, man. What’s up, man. It’s your cousin from Memphis, man letting you know we waiting on that god d--- ‘Views From the 6,’ man. That s--- poppin’,” he says laughing.
Although the album is slated to be released in the coming weeks, Drake plans to follow in the footsteps of artists like Kanye West and Rihanna before him. Buzzfeed reported that “Views From the 6” will be available to exclusively to Apple Music subscribers for the first seven days following its release. It will then be made available to listeners via other platforms.
Drake made the official announcement about the release of “Views From the 6” during a new episode of his Beats 1 show OVO Sound Radio (Via Us Weekly). He revealed few details about the album, but promised fans there would be no shortage of new music to get them through “the summer,” “the year” and “forever.”
