Drake‘s one of the hardest working men in Hip Hop right now, but he took some time out to let fans know Views From the 6 is still on schedule.
Although there’s currently no lead single building up to the album, Drake is clear he’s sticking to the release date he promised fans in January when he dropped “Summer Sixteen.” Drake said of the album, “We’re here working overtime on it tryna make it everything I know it should be and the album itself will be coming in April 2016, so 416, you know that’s where I’m from.”
Since making the announcement Drake hasn’t released a build up in traditional fashion to hype up the release. Instead, he’s helped his hometown of Toronto host NBA All-Star Weekend and recently captained feature duties for Rihanna’s smash hit “Work,” leaving fans wondering if the album was getting pushed back.
To ease concerns, Drake has been hinting at the album’s completion on social media with captions like “Home Stretch;” then yesterday confirmed via Instagram his fifth studio album will indeed be dropping in April.
