After months of hyping up the release Views from the 6, two tracks from Drake’s upcoming album have leaked online.

The first is titled “Controlla” and features Popcaan. It’s another slow-burn dance number in the same veins as “Hotline Bling” and “Work” (Rhianna’s track featuring Drake).

Meanwhile, “These Days” is electric piano led ballad, much like Kanye West’s “Only One” and unlike anything the rapper/singer has done before.

The tracks are being pulled from Soundcloud, YouTube and every other streaming service you can think off, but remain - for now - on the6track. Listen to "Controlla" below

Meanwhile, Drake is rumoured to be working on a remix of “Wolves” with Kanye West, while Hudson Mohawke recently threatened to leak his music for not paying the producer properly.

Speaking about View from the 6, long-time collaborator Noah “40” Shebib said: “It’s going to be what everybody expects and wants from Drake and from us. A lot of introspection, very vivid. He’s discovering new flows, new cadences, new patterns.”

Beats-wise, “I’m trying to find ways to pull more untraditional sounds in, to push the boundaries a little further. Something about it should be special.” The album is set to drop sometime this April.
