After months of speculation, Drake has officially announced that Views From the 6 will be released April 29.
The Toronto rapper broke the news on his OVO Sound radio show, according to Billboard.
Views From the 6 is slated to be an Apple Music/iTunes exclusive on its drop day.

He has already released the videos for “Energy” and “Hotline Bling” through Apple.
Drake has teased various release dates for his forthcoming LP. A promotional video from November said the album was coming in January. The 6 God said on New Year’s that the project was “coming very soon.”

Drake confirms Views From The 6 release date, via Instagram.
Although Drake didn’t share a specific release date for Views From The 6, the Toronto singer/rapper did announce that his much-anticipated project will in fact be released in April.
Yesterday (March 15), Drake uploaded a picture of a Views From The 6 billboard, and added the follow caption: “APRIL”
This week’s announcement comes months after Drake rapped about possibly dropping Views From The 6 in January, on his “30 for 30 Freestyle.”
“But just know it’ll be January in no time,” Drake rapped on “30 For 30 Freestyle,” which was released last November.
Although an updated released date for Views From The 6 was just released, details on the album have continuously been offered thanks to those who have lent their assistance on the project or have ties to Drake.
“I don’t even know ’cause I hear so many songs and then they’ll be like, ‘It’s going on there,'” ILOVEMAKONNEN said, during the interview. “And then it’s like shit came out four months ago or something, so it’s like, ‘Oh.’ It’s gonna be definitely a good album, though. I’m nervous.”
