Drake

OVO Records

It's. About. To go. Down.

Drake just released his fourth studio album, Views (previously titled Views From the 6), and you better believe that it's going to be packed full of emo lyrics, cryptic references and maybe even a few shout outs to his famous friends (and foes). The 29-year-old's new music was previewed on Beats1Radio on Apple Music and is expected to be available on iTunes later this evening.

The Canadian rapper unveiled the track list of the highly anticipated album earlier this week, which features 20 songs (including the previously released "Hotline Bling" and "One Dance").

And earlier today, Drake posted a bit more info about Views and just who is behind many of the songs.

It turns out Kanye West had his hand in the project—despite their public diss tracks—since he is listed as a co-producer on "(U With Me?" alongside Noah "40" Shebib.

The album has been in the works now for well over two years, and promotional billboard signs have been popping up in Toronto since early 2015.

In February, Shebib spoke to The New York Times about the process has been for Drake and what fans can look forward to.

"It's going to be what everybody expects and wants from Drake and from us. A lot of introspection, very vivid. He's discovering new flows, new cadences, new patterns."

He added, "I'm trying to find ways to pull more untraditional sounds in, to push the boundaries a little further…It should be special."

Just a few days ago, the Grammy winner announced the Summer Sixteen Tour with the help of his pal Future.

The two will be traveling for most of the summer around North America and will kick off on July 20 in Austin. They're currently expected to conclude in Vancouver in the middle of September.
