Drake Reveals Title of Next Albumby Karen Lanza | PopCrush
Drake has a crazy amount of projects on his plate — including hosting the ESPY Awards on Wednesday (July 16) — but that hasn’t stopped him from adding yet one more. He announced the title of his upcoming fourth album will be ‘Views From the 6,’ Billboard reports.
Serious work on the album apparently has yet to begin, and other details have not been disclosed, but Drake did allude to an early 2015 release for his own project (as well as those of members of his October’s Very Own crew) in recent track ‘0 to 100′: “We already got Spring 2015 pippin’,” he raps. “PND droppin’, Reps Up P droppin’, Majid Jordan droppin’, OB droppin’, not to mention me droppin’.”
As for the album’s title, it’s not yet known what the ‘6’ means, although it’s believed to be a reference to the Canadian rapper’s Toronto hometown.
Besides the ESPYs, Drake’s busy schedule this summer includes the first two releases off his OVO Sound record label, the fifth annual edition of hip-hop festival OVOFest and a 31-city co-headlining tour with Lil Wayne. The trek launches Aug. 8 at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in New York.
