Drake's 'Views From the 6' Premiering on Apple Music's Beats 1 on Thursday Night


Just like Drake and Future's What a Time to Be Alive did back in September, Views from the 6 is premiering on Apple Music's Beats 1 this Thursday night (April 28). It'll come in the form of a special edition of OVO Sound Radio, Drake and his crew's biweekly Saturday show. The "global listening party" (which sounds accurate, and timed so close to the global visual album listening/watching party Beyoncé and HBO hosted on Saturday night) starts at 10 p.m. EST.

Beats 1 mascot Zane Lowe will also conduct a "MAJOR" interview with Drake at some point during the show.

Since April 9, the release date has been teased as April 29, so we're getting Views a tiny bit earlier than expected. On Tuesday, April 25, Noah "40" Shebib tweeted that the album was done—and quickly corrected himself to say it actually wasn't done. For everything else we know about the album, and all the potential music we've heard, hit Fuse's Complete Guide to Views from the 6.

Next, watch an episode of our digital miniseries The Drake Effect, this one detailing how Drizzy changed hip-hop and R&B radio culture—before he changed streaming exclusive culture:
