Drake Worked With Beyonce For Views From The 6

He says the album is going to mark new sonic territory for him.

April 16, 2015

Now that Drake has been promoting his recent project If You're Reading This It's Too Late, it seems as though his upcoming album Views From the 6 has gone from impending to a question mark. During Coachella, however, Drizzy gave some insight into it while talking to Four Pins. Drake said that he's two songs deep. One of them is a collaboration with Beyonce, the other marks a new direction for him:

The topic of our talk switches to Drake's upcoming fourth album. He only has two songs finished that he likes. One is a collaboration with Beyoncé that he recorded a while ago. The other is a song that he expects to inspire a paradigm shift. His days of releasing lay-up bangers that everyone loves right away are over. For now.

Views From The 6 needs to shock listeners just as much as it needs to impress them. I compare it to what Kanye did on his own fourth album, 808s & Heartbreak. Drake agrees and, as if to reinforce that notion, he tells me that Boi-1da said he needs to listen to the non-Beyoncé song a few more times before he can decide whether it's good or not. It appears that Drake is ready to deviate from his winning formula and get a little weird.
