Drake's been a busy dude, but that hasn't stopped the R&B/rap star from christening his upcoming fourth album. Earlier today, Drizzy confirmed his new record will be titled Views From the 6.

What exactly are Drake's "views from the 6?" Not much else is known about the record other than its title, but we're holding out hope that it's a response to Jennifer Lopez's 1999 debut LP On the 6. On the new track "0 to 100/The Catch Up" from June, Drizzy does say "we got 2015 poppin'," perhaps indicating when the new record will drop? Billboard, who broke the news, notes that Drake "hasn't even begun recording his fourth album in earnest."

In the meantime, the "Trophies" singer has a handful of projects to keep him busy—and in the limelight. On July 16, the Toronto native hosts The ESPYs on ESPN. Soon after, Drake's OVO Sound label will drop its first two projects from up-and-coming singers: the Place Like This EP from Majid Jordan (Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home" collaborator) and PARTYNEXTDOOR's PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO. Plus, Drake's OVOFest hits Toronto on August 3 and 4.

Drake is then set to head out on a "rap battle"-style tour with Lil Wayne for a joint, 31-city trek kicking off on August 8.

Fingers crossed these outside projects will bring with them a steady stream of new Drizzy music. We're not entirely sure we can wait 'til 2015!
