Drake is bringing the feels on his upcoming album Views From The 6.
Drizzy hasn’t dropped a new album since 2015’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, but he’s been actively releasing music since it’s debut. While recording Views, Drake has kept his name fresh in our minds by relentlessly taken shots at Meek Mill with songs like the semi-recent “Summer Sixteen” or appearing in Rihanna’s chart-topping lead single “Work.” In April, Drake will drop his next LP, and two songs which might be included on the record surfaced ahead of schedule. On Tuesday (March 29), Drake’s heartfelt cover of Jackson Browne’s “These Days” and his collaboration with Popcaan on “Controlla” surfaced. Both songs are new sound for Drake, especially “These Days” where Drake finds himself singing a slow jam. The track belongs to Babeo Baggins of Barf Troop, who released the song after it leaked.
“Drake is a friend of mine,” Babeo says to Dazed. “‘These Days’ is my favorite song in the world and I showed him the song because he had never heard of it. He connected with it, which explains us doing the cover.”
I’ve stopped the dreaming
I don’t do too much scheming these days
I sit inside a chauffeur car with the windows down
and count the stars, these days
