Drake Tells Crowd More New Music Is on the Way
After changing his album title last minute ala Kanye West, Drake may be taking another page from the Pablo rapper, by following up Views with the promise of another release. While Drizzy didn't go so far as to offer up a title like Kanye did with Turbo Grafx 16, he did make a pretty definitive statement at a surprise show recently that suggests he's got heat stashed away.
"And I’ma tell you like this," he says in the above clip, "just because Views came out, it doesn’t mean there’s not new music on the way. So I’ll see you soon. You know what it is."
Capturing some of the zeitgeist and excitement that had built over Views, Drake has been popping up around Toronto, performing a surprise set at Toronto's Ryerson University yesterday (May 1) after doing the same for fans outside the Air Canada Centre on Friday (April 29).
Watch Drake deliver the news up top, while below, he performs "One Dance," "Summer Sixteen" and "Jumpman." The recent performances may offer a small glimpse into what Drake has in store for his Summer Sixteen tour with Future, which will get started on July 20 in Austin, TX and continue through September.
The wave that Drake and the 6 have been riding in the weeks leading up to Views is likely to continue on as the Toronto Raptors eliminated the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 Sunday night (May 1). Drake was, of course, in attendance and should continue to be, as the Raptors take on Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semi-finals.
