3 Ways You Can Listen To ‘Views,’ Depending On How Much You Love Drake
Drake’s highly-anticipated new album Views is finally almost here, so depending on how much you love Drake, it’s time to figure out the lengths you’ll go to listen when it drops at midnight tonight, on April 28.
With everyone dropping secret albums, or releasing music through
the illuminati, Tidal, it can be hard to know where to listen to popular albums these days. Views, — not to be confused with Views From The 6, people, as he changed the album title yesterday — will be the rapper’s fourth studio album, and if you’re a true Drake lover, you’ll remember the hassle that came with the release of his last two mixtapes. Both “What a Time to be Alive” and “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” were only available on iTunes for a long time.
Not to worry this time around; here are three ways you can listen to Views, in accordance with your level of fandom.
1. Tune in Tonight
Drake will premiere Views on the OVO Sound Radio Show for Beats 1 after an interview with Zane Lowe. The show starts tonight at 10 p.m. EDT, and will evidently premiere in the album in full.
2. Apple Music
“Views” will stream exclusively on Apple Music for a week before it’s made available to other streaming services. So if you don’t have Apple Music, now might be the time decide whether it’s worth it to sign up for your free three-month-trial.
This is the shittiest option, clearly for the non-super fan. One way or another, each of the songs on the 20-song tracklist will make its way to YouTube, so if you don’t mind being disconnected from cultural conversations (aka Drake memes) for a week, this might be your best option.
Ultimately, the best way to listen would probably be in-person at a concert. Tickets for the upcoming Summer Sixteen tour — with Future also along for the ride — will be available to the public tomorrow morning. And if you choose to purchase the $1,000 VIP concert package, you could meet Drake, and receive a photo with the 6 God, a 6 God candle, incense holder, custom disposable camera, photo frame, foam finger, set of Summer Sixteen patches, pin set, car freshener, “floaty pen” and bag. Don’t sleep on that option, Drake fans!
