Drake drops new single from Views from the 6

The unstoppable Drake revealed yesterday that he'll soon be releasing his new album, Views from the 6.

As reported by the CBC, the April 2016 release date - 4/16 - is a nod to the city's area code. The exact date is yet to be confirmed, but Drizzy ensured listeners of his OVO Sound Radio show that he's "working overtime" to complete the album.

Over the course of the show, Drake played his new single, Summer Sixteen, several times. The song is now available on iTunes and Apple Music.

On the track, Drake takes jabs at several people including Kanye ("Now I got a bigger pool than Ye") and President Barack Obama ("Tell Obama that my verses are just like the whips that he in, they bulletproof"), who once said that Kendrick Lamar would beat Drake in a rap battle.

Of course, the Twitterverse was quick to chime in.
