It’s finally here.
To wrap up perhaps the most meme-able album rollout of all time, Drake is going on Beats 1 Radio tonight to play his fourth studio album, VIEWS. Beginning at 7:45pm PST/10:45pm EST, he plans to sit down with Zane Lowe for an interview and will play the album as part of a “global listening party.”
With an expected midnight release, the album will be available to stream on Apple Music and purchase on iTunes shortly after the radio show ends. While you wait, you can read our feature story “Drake, Chance, and the Death of the Album Cycle” right here. A heartfelt note to his producer Noah “40” Shebib, a last-minute trailer for VIEWS, and the 20-song tracklist can also be found at the end of this post.
Before we do this I just wanna say thanks man. Thank you for the years you spent working with some of Toronto’s true legends honing your craft. Thanks you for dropping everything to work with me after we met and realized we had something special. Thank you for pushing yourself despite the fact you should be resting to achieve an end goal that we are both obsessed with. Thank you for listening to me vent and talking me off ledges. Thank you for talking me out of sending every good song I make to someone else 😂. Thank you for reminding me that we set out to do something more than just have the biggest song in the club or the biggest song of the month. Thank you for building SOTA. Thank you for caring about the people in this city as much as I do. Thank you for a lifetime of hard work and surreal moments. This story would have gone a lot different without you. Thank you 40 (aka DB40 aka Cuarenta aka Bibber aka My brother). Text me when you are ready to start the next one 😂😂😂 @ovo40
