Drake shares the official artwork for 'Views From The 6', announces 'Summer Sixteen' tour with Future
UPDATE (27/04/2016 16:22PM)** Drake's Views From the 6 is out on Friday. However, on Thursday night (April 28), just two hours before it comes out, it'll stream in full on Drake's Beats 1 show OVOSOUND Radio, Pitchfork reports. Tune in at 10 p.m. ET (3am UK time) on Thursday to hear the album's premiere.
With just five days until his album drops, Drake has unveiled the official artwork for Views From The 6. We all know how much love Drake has for Toronto, Canada, but this artwork pays homage to his hometown in a pretty cool way. At first glance, the cover appears to just be an image of Toronto’s CN Tower, but if you take a closer look you can see Drake perched atop of the impressive structure.
Drake unveiled the artwork after a surprise appearance at his VIEWS pop-up shop in Toronto.
Views From The 6 arrives April 29. In other news, reports are surfacing that Future and Drake are set to embark on a 'Summer Sixteen' Tour this summer. According to a web page that was temporarily on Live Nation, there’s one tour date listed on August 16 at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena. Tickets for that show are set to go on-sale on Friday, April 29, the same day Views From the 6 releases. Future also sent out a series of cryptic tweets alluding to Freebandz and OVO's alliance. Hopefully, we get some UK dates for this tour.
