Drake's Views from the 6 is arriving this Friday, April 29, and we've finally got a piece of cover art to stare at till then. Interestingly enough, it's a flawless mash-up of the covers from his last two proper albums, 2011's Take Care and 2013's Nothing Was the Same. (If You're Reading This It's Too Late and What a Time to Be Alive were mixtapes, whether you paid for them or not.)
