Drake' s much-anticipated fourth album is finally out. The Canadian rapper dropped "Views" on iTunes and Apple Music Thursday night.
"Views" is Drake's longest album so far. It features 20 songs, some in collaboration with other popular artists, which he teased on Instagram Thursday afternoon. "Too Good" features Rihanna, "Grammys" features Future, "Faithful" features Pimp C, "One Dance" features WizKid, "Controlla" features Popcaan, and "With You" features Partynextdoor. The album is produced by Kanye West, Southside, Boi-1da, and his longtime producer Noah "40" Shebib, whom he wrote a long thank you note to on Instagram.
Before the album's release, Drake unveiled the cover (above) on Sunday through his Instagram account. The album cover shows him sitting on top of Toronto's CN Tower. He also previously teased "Views" when he wrapped up his 2013/2014 tour, "Would You Like a Tour?"
Speaking of tours, Drake announced he and Future will be embarking on a new tour in support of the new album. Their "Summer Sixteen Tour" starts at Austin, Texas on July 20 and ends in Vancouver on Sept 17. Two dates will be in time for the OVO Fest in Toronto, Canada, where Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg are expected to perform. Those in the city or those who can travel on July 31 and Aug. 1 can catch Drake and Future at the Air Canada Centre. Those interested can check out Drake's official website for more details. Pre-sales already began on Wednesday.
Formerly known as "Views From the 6." "Views" is Drake's third high-profile release since February last year. Before "Views," Drake released his long mixtape "If You're Reading This It's Too Late" and "What A Time to Be Alive" with Future.
"Views" is described as "Drake's tour through the city that made him." The new album can be bought on iTunes for $13.99.
