Drake Shortens 'Views' Album Title, Expands Tour news

Drake has unveiled the official track list for his forthcoming album and has abbreviated the title to boot. Formerly Views From the 6, his fourth studio album will now be released as Views, according to Fader, who confirmed the change with Universal Music Canada. Drake has also been promoting the album with #VIEWS hashtag tweets. It’s set to be released on Friday via Apple Music.

A day before its release, Drake will premiere Views during a special episode of OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1 on Thursday at 10 p.m. ET. Views offers 19 tracks, with “Hotline Bling” serving as a bonus song.

On Sunday, he shared the cover art, which features him sitting on the CN tower, and dedicated it to his Toronto hometown. “To the city I love and the people in it… Thank you for everything #VIEWS,” he tweeted. Earlier in April, Drake shared “Pop Style” featuring Kanye West and Jay Z and “One Dance” from the album. 

Following Views‘ release, Drake and Future will embark on their Summer Sixteen Tour. Originally scheduled for 32 dates, the tour has been expanded with seven more stops, including additional third shows in New York and Los Angeles, and second shows in Washington, Atlanta, Miami, Houston and Vancouver.
