Drake Has A Beyonce Collaboration On His ‘Views From The 6’ Album
Drake has been keeping very busy in 2015 — and we’re only four months in! After dropping his If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late mixtape and making out with Madonna at Coachella, the Toronto rapper is now revealing that he has a Beyonce collaboration on his forthcoming Views From The 6 album.
In an interview with Ernest Baker for Four Pins where he caught up with the rapper at the music festival, Drake discusses two tracks from the anticipated fourth project. One may have a possible musical shift, while the other will feature the “7/11” diva:
“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, at least.
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 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.”
This will mark the second collaboration between the two artists, with the first one being 2013’s “Mine” — off the rule-breaking Beyonce LP. Drake also recorded a tribute to the songstress with “Girls Love Beyonce” from that same year.
Along with revealing the big news with King Bey, Drake also plans to step up his Coachella performance with a bigger surprise for this weekend — he knows his appearance last week was not the best. “I took an L for the first time,” he admitted. “I just have to reassess what went wrong with my judgment.” Click here to read Drake’s full Coachella profile.
