The Ambassador of Toronto, Drake has finally dropped his fourth album called Views (I prefer Views from the 6).
It’s 20 tracks which includes the big #2 hit Hotline Bling and clocking in at 73 minutes.
With countless Drake’s Views that you can make yourself.
There is alot hype surrounding and expectations with Views with it’s hit leading singles and word around it being a concept album of sorts.
Is it Drake’s representation of Toronto?
More like his view of Toronto’s upper class that he is singing about.
There are some great tracks like Feels No Way with is a 1980s vibe, Hype and Faithful.
I still think his best song is Take Care from 5 years ago but he sort of ripped it off from Jamie XX + Gil Scott Heron’s “I’ll Take Care of U”.
You can say Too Good featuring Rihanna can be the companion/part two of Take Care.
Overall I find the album very long to listen and overdrawn with it’s slowness.
More R&B and not alot of banging hip-hop music.
It is nice that Hotline Bling was added as a bonus track.
What do I know about Drake and his music?
At least we know for certain with alot of mix reaction/surprise that it will be shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize.
I’d give Views:
