New Drake Music With Future Still Isn’t ‘Views From The 6’ So What Gives, Champagne Papi?
I feel like I've been waiting my whole life for Drake to release Views From The 6 . It's been talked about, it's been anticipated, but it certainly hasn't been released. A new Drake album is being released on Sunday night, but it's actually a mixtape he made in collaboration with future called What A Time To Be Alive. Both rappers announced the joint project on Instagram on Saturday night, and now in just a few short hours, the album will hit iTunes. I'm sure it's going to be amazing and I'll listen to it nonstop, but I still haven't forgotten about Views and wondering where the hell that album is.
I suppose we should be grateful that we're getting new Drake music at all. First, there was the If You're Reading This, It's Too Late mixtape out in February, and now What A Time To Be Alive. That's plenty of Drake goodness to sink our teeth into. However, I'm still confused about why he ever bothered to announce that Views From The 6 is even a thing if he had no plans to release it — or at least not before he puts out 900 other recordings. Can you tell I'm getting a bit antsy?!
Here are a few questions I have for Drake as the wait for Views continues. He's got a lot to answer for, you guys.
Why Are You Dropping #WATTBA During The Emmys?
A random Sunday night in September at 8 p.m. strikes me as a really odd time to release a mixtape, especially when that "random" Sunday night just so happens to be the night the Emmys are on. Why did you do this?
No, Seriously, Don't You Know Everyone Will Be Watching The Emmys?
Did you (or the person responsible for deciding release dates) really not realize that the Emmys are on tonight? Did you not care, thinking that your audience and the Emmys audience won't really overlap? I'm just trying to understand the thought process here.
Do You Think Releasing What A Time To Be Alive Will Make Us Forget About Views From The 6?
Again, I'm totally grateful that you've got new music out, but that doesn't mean we don't remember that Views From The 6 is still not out. If you buy me pizza for dinner, I'm still not going to forget about the cupcakes we're having for dessert.
Where Is Views From The 6?
Just level with us. Be honest. Where is this damn thing?!
Does Views From The 6 Really Exist Or Is It A Figment Of Our Collective Imagination?
Maybe Views isn't really real. Maybe it was at one point, but then the album kinda dissipated and you started doing all these other projects instead. Are we waiting in vain? Did we dream up the whole thing?
Will "Hotline Bling" Be On Views From The 6? It's A Really Good Song!
It comes on the radio at least once every time I'm in the car. It's a real ear worm. I hope it's on Views From The 6.
Why Are You Taunting Us With Views From The 6 If You're Never Going To Put It Out?
It's just cruel, Drake. I thought you were better than that. I thought we cared about each other. I can't believe this is happening.
