How's this for a one-two punch? On Tuesday morning, Drake dropped two new singles -- one that features Jay Z and Kanye West, and another that sounds like it has the catchiness that made "Hotline Bling" inescapable in 2015.
"Pop Style" features The Throne, which, as you may remember from Watch the Throne, is the duo comprised of Jay and 'Ye. The beat is haunting, looming over you as Drake delivers the first verse and passed the baton to Kanye; Hov's only contribution ends as quickly as it starts: "They still out to get me, they don't get it/ I cannot be gotten, that's a given," he raps, sandwiched in between their two verses.
"One Dance," meanwhile, features Wizkid & Kyla, and is a sonic contrast to "Pop Style" -- it's a far brighter, bouncier offering. The lyrical boasts of the The Throne collab are traded for sung seduction: "I need a one dance/ Got the Hennessy in my hand/ One more time 'fore I go," Aubrey croons.
There's still no official release date for Views from the 6, but iTunes lists the release date of each of these singles as April 8, which is this Friday, so, feel free to speculate about that if you'd like.
