Drake will title his new album Views From The 6. Opening up to Billboard about the project he’s yet to begin recording, Drake revealed the title and announced it would come after a few of his OVO Sound artists release their solo projects. Up first is Majid Jordan and PartyNextDoor‘s albums, Place Like This, and PartyNextDoor Two, respectively which both arrive on July 29th. You can pre-order both on iTunes now.
Drake will then hold his annual OVO Fest festival in Toronto, Canada at the Molson Canadian Amphitheater on August 3rd and 4th with Outkast and himself headlining. After that Drizzy will go on tour with his boss and mentor Lil Wayne for 31 dates as part of their “competitive” Drake vs Lil Wayne tour sponsored by CapCom.
In between the release of his new album Views From The 6 and now, Drake may also release solo projects for other OVO Sound artists such as OB O’Brien and P-Reign.
“The 6” is a nickname for Toronto, where Drake is from.
