VIEWS

The Back­story: Hav­ing ac­cli­ma­tised to fame and for­tune, the ques­tion loomed: did hip-hop’s most in­tro­spec­tive soul still have any­thing left to say about him­self? The Clincher: Rap­per. Singer. Be­sieged multi-mil­lion­aire. Tor­mented Ev­ery­man. Street poet. Wounded lover. In­dig­nant artiste. Meme-made-flesh. Views was Drake’s best at­tempt yet at be­com­ing all things to all peo­ple. The out­come? The first al­bum to hit 1 bil­lion streams on Ap­ple Mu­sic. What They Say: “I don’t want you to get it right away… Great mu­sic takes a lit­tle work.” Key Track: Hype. GG
