Drake has just released the track list for Views From The 6, his fourth studio album, two days before it’s set to drop. And if the project has receded a bit from the pop-culture consciousness a bit, it’s not really Drake’s fault—he’s done his part in promoting it via Elaine Benes-inspired dance moves and a Kanye West collaboration that Jay Z dropped in on for a second. Unfortunately, Drizzy’s protracted release of the album means he has to follow Beyoncé’s act, i.e., Lemonade, something no one should ever have to do. But if “One Dance” is any indication, there’s plenty to look forward to in Views From The 6, so let’s go over the tweeted track list.


Yep, the world-weary “Pop Style” is on there, along with leaked tracks “Controlla,” which reunites him with Popcaan, and “Faithful” featuring Pimp C. The promotional single “Summer Sixteen” is missing from the list for some reason, with “Hotline Bling” thrown in as a bonus. It’s becoming increasingly common to learn or hear half of the songs on an album ahead of its release (cough, Waves, cough), so it’s time for Drake to ramp things up on the promotional end—these giant hands should do it, right? Okay, fine, he’ll add some dates to his Summer Sixteen Tour with Future.
