Fans speculated last week that ‘Views From The 6’, Drake’s upcoming new record, was almost complete after the musician shared a series of pictures of himself in the studio on Instagram. Known collaborators Noah “40” Shebib, Future the Prince, and Oliver El-Khatib all featured heavily. Drake has since revealed the record is due out in April.

The news comes just days after Rihanna dropped her new single ‘Work’, on which Drake featured. The Barbadian singer released her long-awaited album ‘Anti’ a day later.
