'Views From The 6' will land on April 29
Drake‘s new album will be exclusive to Apple Music for just one week, it has been confirmed.
As reported, ‘Views From The 6’ will be released on April 29 through Apple Music. The album is expected the feature new songs ‘One Dance’ and ‘Pop Style’, the latter features both Kanye West and Jay Z.
Buzzfeed News confirms that the album will then be made available to stream and download everywhere from May 6. This marks a stark contrast to Kanye West’s ‘The Life Of Pablo’ which was tied to Tidal for nearly two months after its release in February.
In 2015 Drake signed a reported £13m deal with Apple. Since then he has hosted a monthly OVO Radio show on Apple Music and debuted his ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ mixtape with Future on the platform. ‘Jumpman’ from that album was featured in a recent Apple Music advert starring Taylor Swift.
Last week (April 6), Drake teased his highly-anticipated new album by projecting an image of some artwork for the project onto a building in London.
Drake’s last official album, ‘Nothing Was The Same’, was released in 2013, but he released a pair of mixtapes in 2015: ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ and ‘What A Time To Be Alive’.
Drake has since shared a 30-second trailer for the album on Twitter – watch below.
