Album Review: Drake’s Views

So it finally happened, last Thursday Drake gave fans exactly what they were waiting for, his fourth studio album, Views and fans have been playing it for days straight. Since the surprise release exclusively on Apple Music, the 20 track album has sold over 600 thousand copies in its first night. Talk about support!
Like his other albums, Drake has stepped outside box and presented a different sound on this album. From the start to finish, each song has a different vibe for the current mood that you are in. Serious, party, fun, you name it, it’s there. He also pays homage to DMX on the song U With Me? As well as dabbling in the world of Reggae/Dancehall music on many of his tracks by using the dialect and collaborating with artists from the country of Jamaica. But there are some questions that a lot of fans would like the answers to.
Before releasing the album, Drake released two singles Pop Style, featuring Kanye West and Jay Z and Controlla¬† featuring Jamaican Superstar Popcaan, so what happened to those versions being in the album? It was a big shock that fans didn’t appreciate, and those opinions were expressed on many social media outlets such as Snapchat, twitter, and instagram.
Hopefully, the 6 God will have answers for fans soon. Here are a few of my favorite songs from the album thus far, Too Good featuring Rihanna, Redemption, and Grammys featuring Future. This album also comes with a surprise collaboration with the late great Pimp C. If you haven’t listened to the album yet, you clearly need too.
