Drake teases new album with Yonge-Dundas billboard

Posted by Alice Prendergast / February 10, 2016

Drake views billboardDrake fans rejoiced last night when @champagnepapi instagrammed a giant billboard of what might be his Views From the 6 album art. The ad in question can be seen at the corner of Yonge and Dundas and has been unveiled just in time for NBA All-Star Weekend.

This is the largest of a few clues that Drake has left around Toronto pointing to the album's release - several more can be spotted Billy Bishop right now. And don't forget the other mysterious billboard teaser from the fall.

Though it's rumoured that Drizzy's newest project will drop April 6th -- that's 4/16, if you needed another reminder that Drake hails from our great city -- this recent unveiling has many a fan hoping that he bumps the date up to some time in the next few days.

If you need your new Drake fix before the drop, you're stuck listening to Summer Sixteen on repeat.
