Popcaan was cut from Drake's Controlla, so he released new music of his own

Drake’s new album Views has finally hit the airwaves (i.e. Apple Music), with fans eagerly dissecting each track on the album, trying to find Meek Mill disses and smooth jams.

Notably, the previously leaked track “These Days” didn’t make the cut and neither did Popcaan, a Jamaican dancehall artist who featured on the leaked version of “Controlla”.

Instead of being annoyed about not making the cut, Popcaan subtly released a new track of his own, titled “Ova Dweet”. The dance-enthused track is more upfront than the Drake track, featuring bigger synths and overall pop feel.

Meanwhile, Views (previously titled View from the 6) is Drake’s proper follow-up to Nothing Was The Same (not including the mixtapes If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and What A Time To Be Alive).

As of writing, the only place to listen to the album legally is via Apple Music and iTunes, while a spokesperson for Spotify told The Independent: "Drake's View From The 6 is not yet available on Spotify, but we look forward to having it very soon.”

Collaborators on the album include Rihanna, Future, and Pimp C, while producers who appear on the album include Kanye West, Noah ’40’ Shebib and Boi-1da. Read our first impressions of the record here.
