Drake drops new song "Summer Sixteen," talks Views From the 6 on OVO Sound Radio

“Some nights I wish I could go back in life / Not to change shit, just to feel a couple things twice.”
– Drake, “6PM in New York”

With Rihanna’s own surprise-drop this past week and Kanye West’s WAVES out in less than two, Drake is raising the stakes by dropping new track “Summer Sixteen” on OVO Sound Radio and talking his long-anticipated new album, Views From the 6. The show is on the air now, courtesy of Apple Music.

It was right around this time last year when Drake surprise-dropped If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, so perhaps we’re in for another February treat? If so, the release would come out right around Drake’s coaching gig for February 12th’s NBA All-Star Celebrity Game and February 15th’s 2016 Grammy Awards, which sees the 6 God up for Best Rap Performance (“Back to Back,” “Truffle Butter”), Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (“Only”), Best Rap Song (“Energy”), and Best Rap Album (If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late).

Views From the 6 has been in the works for coming up on two years now, well before the unleashing of his one-two punch from 2015.

This story will be updated as news comes in.
