It's no real surprise when an high-profile artist like Drake just drops an album whenever he wants, but it doesn't make it any less exciting!
Sure, we knew the album was coming, got a peek at the track list, and even got some info about Drizzy's Summer Sixteen tour, but now that the Canadian rapper's newest record, Views – formerly titled Views From The 6 — is here, we can't focus on anything else!

That's right, the Hotline Bling rapper officially released his fourth studio album Thursday night on iTunes and Apple Music.
Not only that, but the album features other A-List artists like Kanye West, Jay Z, Rihanna, as well as Future, PartyNextDoor, Popcaan, the late Pimp C, WizKid, and dvsn.
Before the it dropped though, the Toronto rapper took to Instagram to share some more details about the project, along with a gushing thank-you to his producer Noah "40" Shebib (below):

What's partially so impressive about this is that it's the 29-year-old's third high-profile release since February 2015, when he dropped the mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late.
The following September, Drake released a joint record with Future titled What A Time to Be Alive. Talk about staying busy!
While Apple Music currently has the exclusive streaming rights, if you have an account, you can either listen to it HERE or buy it on iTunes!
