Drake’s New Album Will Be Called ‘Views from the 6′
By Kevin Rutherford
Drake‘s followup to Nothing Was the Same has a title.
The rapper confirmed to Billboard today (July 15) that his next album, his fourth, will be titled Views from the 6.
Little else is known about the project; Drake has reportedly started recording his new release, but little other than last month’s “0 to 100/The Catch Up,” which has already inspired multiple remixes from artists prominent and otherwise.
In the song, a release date of spring 2015 for his new album was brought up as a possibility, following a rhyme listing releases from OVO Sound artists, including “not to mention me droppin’.”
The rapper’s OVO Sound label has also revealed release dates for two of its artists. Majid Jordan, who featured on Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” smash from 2013, will drop Place Like This, an EP, while PARTYNEXTDOOR‘s second full-length album PARTYNEXTDOORTWO is coming as well. Both are slated for a July 29 release.
Meanwhile, Drake’s next major project is hosting the ESPYs, which take place tomorrow night (July 16) on ESPN.
