Drake Releases New Album 'Views' on iTunes


APRIL 29, 2016

Jakarta. Canadian rapper Drake has released his much anticipated album "Views" via Apple's iTunes and Apple Music streaming service, he announced on Twitter on Friday (29/04).

The new record consists of 20 tracks, including two previously released singles, "One Dance" (featuring Wizkid and Kyla) and "Pop Style" (with Jay Z and Kanye West).

Drake enlisted his frequent collaborator, Rihanna, in a track called "Too Good."

His popular 2015 single, "Hotline Bling," also appears as a bonus track in the album.

Meanwhile "Summer Sixteen," a promotional single for the album released last January, did not make the final cut.

According to the editor's notes on iTunes, Drake dedicates "Views" to Toronto, the Canadian city "that made him."

"Views" is the fourth studio album from Drake following his 2013 record, "Nothing Was the Same."

The rapper also released two commercial mix-tapes last year.

Drake is set to go on the "Summer Sixteen" tour across North America with fellow rapper Future, which kicks off on July 20, in Austin, Texas.
