Drake’s ‘Views’ Goes 4x Platinum AND He Has A New Album??
Drake is making sure he never runs out! Even with touring and the recent success of Views, Drizzy is still pushing out new content. This month!
— October’s Very Own
First Thing’s First
On December 5, Drake posted a copy of his Views numbers to Instagram. And “impressive” is simply an understatement.
As you can see from the photo, the certification date is December 1.
Drake has sold four million copies of this album…the entire album.
Not song favorites or singles. The whole album.
The success you’ve had from your Views project is uncanny; heck, it’s unprecedented.
Yet, even with the “Summer Sixteen” tour, Drake has found more time to crank out another album in its entirety.
Drake, literally, pushes his 24 hours to the max!
In a public announcement, Drake says that he’s not into mixtapes anymore. Rather, he wants to give his fans and listeners “playlists.”
He quotes the following statements.
“I’m off like mixtapes, I want to do a playlist. I want to give you a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life, so this More Life: The Playlist. Like I said, dropping in December. All original music from me. You might hear some tunes from the family on there. Just really excited. I had a great tour, I had a great summer. And most people would like go probably take a break, but for me I just want to get right back to it. Be with the people again.”
He even says there’s another tour coming up in 2017.
It’s called the “Boy Meets Word” tour. Accordingly, Drake tells the United Kingdom to get ready to see him soon.
“Big up to UK massive. Everybody—Paris, Amsterdam, Sweden, anywhere we are touching down. But yeah, I just want to celebrate life. More life. That’s what we live by. That’s something we not take for granted.”
If you want to hear the audio version of Drake’s announcement, it’s located at Hip-Hop N More.
Drake Has His Own Bat Signal
It’s obvious that Drizzy is going to make 2017 just as big as his 2016. He truly is the master of his own destiny.
And, while Jay Z is known as one of the big names in New York City, it seems that Drake is coming to town — possibly as its “savior”?
On December 5, Drizzy posted a new video to Instagram.
As can be seen in the video, he has his own “Bat signal.” Smh.
Surely, money-wise, it probably doesn’t cost much.
However, it’s the principle! He’s sending a message.
You can check it for yourself in the video below.
All in all, what are your thoughts about Drake’s accomplishments? Is it an inspiration for you to get out there and stack?
