Drake Debuts Two New Songs, One Featuring Kanye West And Jay Z
New music alert! Drake is back.
Drake quickly upped the anticipation for his new album, Views from the 6, after unexpectedly dropping two new songs on Tuesday.
The rap star tweeted out two Apple Music links to his newest songs, giving fans a taste of what is to come. “Pop Style” featuring The Thrones (Kanye West and Jay Z) is a powerhouse rap track, while “One Dance” featuring Wizkid and Kyla shares a “similar vibe with Drake’s Rihanna collab ‘Work,’” shared USA Today.
The new songs come only a few weeks after Drake’s surprise appearance at SXSW with an OVO showcase. While he didn’t play any new songs at the time he told the crowd, “Views From the 6 coming in how many weeks I hope you enjoy that sh–.”
Entertainment Weekly also shared that the Canadian rapper will “head out on tour this year.”
Drake has been working on this highly anticipated album since 2014. In February 2015, Drake surprised fans by releasing a 17-track mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, instead of the expected album. The album was the first to go platinum in 2015.
The two new songs follow the debut single “Summer Sixteen,” from Views from the 6. The rest of the album is expected to drop this month.
