It hasn't even been a year since Drake released his third album, "Nothing Was the Same," but he's already decided on the title for his fourth LP, "Views From The 6."
Drake confirmed the title on Tuesday morning, July 15: "The 6" possibly refers to the "416" area code of his hometown in Toronto, this despite a recent fake billboard campaign that cropped up on the Internet back in April. While there's no word on whether Drake has been recording any material for the album, he hinted at a potential spring 2015 release in his most recent track “0 to 100 / The Catch-Up,” rapping: “We already got spring 2015 poppin’ / PND droppin’ / Reps-Up P droppin’ / Majid Jordin droppin’, OB droppin’ not to mention me droppin’.” Also referenced in the bar are fellow OVO Sound label members Majid Jordan and PARTYNEXTDOOR, whose “Place Like This” EP and "PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO" LP both drop on July 29. The other half of that list, OB Brien and P. Reign, have yet to announce official releases.
Drake has a busy schedule ahead of him, hosting the ESPYs on July 16, the fifth annual OVOFest in Toronto in the beginning of August and then a 31-date co-headlining tour with Lil Wayne following immediately after. Listen to “0 to 100 / The Catch-Up,” OVO Season is coming.
