Drake’s Views from the 6 album looms in the very near future. While many details surrounding the album are fuzzy, it’s been confirmed that it will be dropping in April — which could mean it may surface any day now. Plenty of unfinished tracks have been leaking from the highly-anticipated fourth studio album from the rapper/singer, but two new songs have been officially liberated via iTunes today.
Drake shared “Pop Style” and “One Dance” today out of the blue. The new tracks made their way directly to iTunes as exclusive new singles. Since no tracklisting for Views has been made public, it’s impossible to say whether the new songs will appear on the forthcoming LP.
As for the songs themselves, “One Dance” mixes Dancehall influences and features Wizkid and samples Kyla. The non-rap tune isn’t a complete shock for anybody who’s been following Drake the past couple of years — he’s been experimenting with the sound for some time now.
The other single, “Pop Style,” is ironically the more traditional hip-hop record of the two. It features The Throne, a name that means a lot to those who are rap fans and may mislead those who aren’t. The Throne is, of course, the superduo formed back in 2011 by Kanye West and Jay Z. They haven’t released any music under the moniker since, but they’ve rebooted the project for “Pop Style,” although West’s contribution dwarfs Hov’s.
Listen to both new singles below and stay tuned for more from Drake’s Views from the 6 album.
