Last night was special. The rap community sat around their computers as one of the game’s top artists dropped one of the most anticipated projects in recent memory. Drake‘s VIEWS is 20 tracks deep and has nine features with seven of them being credited.
PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jeremih, the late Pimp C, dvsn, Wizkid, Kyla, Future, Rihanna, and Majid Al Maskati all contributed. The glaring omissions, though? For one, Popcaan didn’t make the final cut on “Controlla.” Also, Kanye West and Jay Z are absent from “Pop Style.” Drake was really vague when the subject of The Throne came up during his Zane Lowe interview on Beats 1, but we all know Drake and Jay’s love of friendly subliminals.
While the album may have not lived up to the expectations for some, it’s still a solid listen after the first couple of spins. As what seems to be turning into a tradition, we decided to rank each guest feature. Check ’em out below.
