Two new songs by Drake that could be in the album “Views from the 6” leaked and found their way to the World Wide Web on Tuesday. The two songs were quickly taken off YouTube and Soundcloud by the following day. It is said Drake could be “looking for revenge.” The question that remains unanswered however is, who leaked the songs?
The two songs are “These Days” and “Contorolla” in which Drake features dancehall artiste Popcaan. To those who have heard the opportunity to listen to the two songs, there is no doubt “Contorolla” could easily pass for Rihanna’s “Work” in which Drake featured. On the other hand, “These Days” is nowhere close to what Drake has been doing recently. The “Started from the Bottom” rapper has in the past one year released two mixtapes, “What a Time To Be Alive” and “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” that were both heavy as far as Hip-Hop is concerned. “These Days” however is typically a ballad in which he sings through the whole track.
It however remains unclear whether the two tracks will still be part of the yet to be released album “Views From the 6” or whether the rapper will choose to leave them out due to the leak. To date, the 29-year old Canadian rapper has just one single “Summer Sixteen” released from the album expected to drop in April. “Summer Sixteen” made its debut in January.
The official release date for the album “Views From the 6” remain unknown but speculation is ripe that April is the month. However, a recent lawsuit against Universal Music Group by Lil Wayne may have an effect on when the album will be released being that Drake is a member of the Young Money label; their contract with Cash Money Record ended in June 2015.
Earlier on this month, Drake teased that he was almost done with his latest album “Views From the 6” through a series of Instagram posts captioned “Home Stretch” showing studio photos. So far there is no official tracklist for the album that has been released though speculation is high that the singles “Hotline Bling” and “back to Back” may find their way to the record. The two leaked songs have both received positive feedback especially the slow Caribbean jam “Contorolla” that has a slight touch of auto tune that’s hard to pick up. “These Days” on the other hand is a dreamy love song that brings out Drake’s voice. As to whether the two leaked songs will make it to record, only time will tell.
