Update (4/6 at 5:00PM): It turns out that the projected image shown in London was not the official cover for Drake's Views from the 6 album. A U.K. rep for Island Records who initially confirmed the news has now issued a correction to The Fader, stating it's "100% not the album artwork" and that is was solely teaser art. The magazine has since deleted their original tweet.

Original story, 4/6 at 3:55PM: A little after 8 p.m. in London, an image appeared on a building. It's a white silhouette of a hand making a six shape, with a kinda crude eyeball in the middle.

And it's the cover art for Views from the 6Drake's fourth studio album, due sometime this month. Drizzy fans will recognize it as the same logo used for the January single "Summer Sixteen." The artist is New York's Filip Pągowski, who created the Comme des Garçons logo.

Island Records confirmed to The Fader that the art is legit. The magazine also accurately notes that London is an odd place to debut art for an album so specifically about—and named after—Toronto.

Yesterday Drake dropped "One Dance" and "Pop Style," the latter featuring Kanye West and Jay Z, billed as The Throne. For everything we know about the new album, visit the Complete Guide to Views from the 6. Then check out an episode of Fuse's digital miniseries The Drake Effect:
