Drake Reveals ‘Views’ Billboard in Toronto
OVO SZN is in full effect. Earlier today (Feb. 9) Billy Bishop Airport, the main airport for the city of Toronto, tweeted out pictures of what look like advertisements for Drake's Views From The 6 album.
Later on Drake posted a picture of a billboard that just says "VIEWS" with the caption "All Star Weekend 2016."
It might be the first trick of many up Drake's sleeve. The NBA All Star Game is days away from happening in his hometown, and it just so happens Drake is coaching one of the teams. With all the attention focused on Toronto and a ton of people visiting the city, it makes sense that Drake take the opportunity to rev up the marketing campaign for his long-awaited fourth studio album, Views From The 6.
Since the last OVO Sound Radio was on January 30, it also looks like a new episode of the Beats 1 show will air during All Star weekend as well. Chances are Drake will give listeners a preview of what to expect from Views.
Last week on OVO Sound Radio Drake dropped a new song "Summer Sixteen" which carries the same logo that appears on the bottom of those ads above. On that same show he said to expect the album some time in April.
Meek apparently caught wind of the song before it came out and let Drake know he might have a mole on his team. Whether they'll continue their spat remains to be seen, but starting March 1 Meek will be prevented from releasing any new music for at least three months while he serves his sentence via house arrest.
