The rapper's album is set for release later this week (April 29)
The official Twitter account for the CN Tower in Toronto have confirmed that Drake‘s artwork for new album ‘Views From The 6’ was Photoshopped.
The rapper’s album is set for release later this week (April 29) and its artwork shows a close up of the skyscraper in his hometown of Toronto (nicknamed “The 6”) with Drake, dwarfed by the scale of the building, perched on the top.
Following debate among fans over whether the album was digitally edited or not, a tweet on the CN Tower Twitter page reads: “Proud Torontonian @Drake at the top of CN Tower with the help of some photoshop magic! #photshopped #notreallythere”.

A tracklist for the album is not yet confirmed but at the Toronto pop-up at the weekend he told fans there are “like 20 songs for y’all to enjoy” on it. Number One single ‘On Dance’ and Kanye West/ Jay Z collaboration ‘Pop Style’ are both expected to be among the tracks on the record.
Drake has also announced details of a US tour with Future as well as the line-up for his annual OVO Fest in Toronto.
The Summer Sixteen tour will begin on July 20 in Austin, Texas with Drake and Future performing on the same bill throughout that month and into August and September. The two rappers released joint mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ in 2015. Special guests on the tour include Roy Woods and Dvsn.
Drake and Future will also perform as part of OVO Fest, Drake’s annual music festival in Toronto. The event runs between July 29-August 1. On July 1 there will be performances from Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa before Drake and Future takeover on July 30 and again on August 1.
