Last night, Drake appeared at his latest pop-up shop in Toronto after hosting similar events in New York, Miami, L.A., and Palm Springs, as part of the ongoing promotion of his upcoming album 'Views from the 6'. Upon his arrival in his hometown, Drake announced that he would be sharing the artwork for his fourth studio release on Twitter, which the 6 God has now done (see it above).
Drizzy shared the image with a caption saying, “To the city I love and the people in it…Thank you for everything.” It features Drake sitting on top of Toronto's CN Tower and according to the FADER, was shot by photographer Caitlin Cronenberg with art direction by Nicky Orenstein.
Although there is no tracklist or pre-order available yet, Drake told fans and attendees that there are "like 20 songs for y'all to enjoy" on it. Out on Friday (April 29th), the album will be an Apple Music exclusive for one week and is expected to feature the recently released singles One Dance (featuring Wizkid and Kyla) and Pop Style (featuring Kanye West and Jay Z) as well as Summer Sixteen from January.
Listen to One Dance below.
