Drake releases the real track list for Views from the 6, and his fan base goes crazy. As hunger grows for April 29, Drizzy puts another appetizer out.
Drake wasn’t kidding around when he mentioned that Views would be a 20-track album. From a look at the album’s list, Views from the 6 is about to give his fans the heat they’ve desired. You can see Drake’s post below.
As it seems, the only familiar Views tracks will be “Controlla,” “One Dance,” “Pop Style,” “Faithful,” and “Hotline Bling.” So, essentially, Drake’s album offers 15 unheard songs for his listeners’ enjoyments.
Regardless, all of the songs appear to be on the listeners’ wishlists. One of Drake’s commentators, Glo Will, states, “Haven’t even heard it yet and I already know it’s all I’m listening to for the next 6 months.”
And just when you thought Drake was done surprising his listeners, he extends his Summer Sixteen Tour dates. According to Drake’s Instagram, he added six more shows to the original schedule, totaling 39 performances. More than likely, Drake will include songs from his Views from the 6 album. The first concert on Drake’s tour isn’t until July 20, and it’s in Austin, Texas. By that time, his fan base should know the entire album, right?
In most cities, Drake will do two shows. However, two of the cities — New York and Los Angeles — will get three concerts. This is possibly due to the population size of the cities, compared to others.
While Future will join Drake on the Summer Sixteen Tour, the Views artist also notes that Roy Woods and DVSN (pronounced “Division”) will also accompany the OVO sensation. If you’re unfamiliar with Woods and DVSN, they’re part of Drake’s label. They’re two talented acts with their own unique sound and fan base.
Yet, to digress, Drake’s Summer Sixteen Tour offers its concertgoers some well-wanted incentives for VIP purchase. According to Ticket Master, Drake offers two packages: (1) 6 God Meet and Greet Package and the (2) Summer Sixteen Ticket Package.
The “Meet and Greet” package offers the following incentives and is purchased for $1,000:
- One (1) ticket in the first five rows
- Professionally taken Individual photo with Drake
- One (1) 6 God Candle

Drake’s other package gets the purchaser within the first 10 to 15 rows. Also, if a person buys this Drake package, he or she receives the aforementioned pins, patches, and car freshener.
According to the source, Drake’s VIP items will be shipped to the receiver after the concert. Also, the packages are non-transferable. The source mentions, “Wonderful Union via email 24-48 hours before your event with further instructions regarding your package.”
Like Drake, Future offers a “Meet and Greet” package as well. For $500, it includes the following:
- One premium reserved ticket located in the first 15 rows
- VIP early entry into the venue
- Exclusive meet & greet with Future

The source notes that this particular package has a limited availability. Future’s VIP packages aren’t transferable, exchangeable, or refundable. Specifically, it states, “All sales are final.” And it’s important to know that the laminate doesn’t substitute for the ticket. As in, the laminate doesn’t gain or authorize access into the venue, VIP, or any backstage areas. In addition, unlike Drake’s items, Future’s package items will be distributed at the concert.
