Drake's new song sounds inspired by his on-again-off-again relationship with Rihanna. "Views from the 6," which leaked last week, is the title track from his forthcoming album and features Arizona rapper E Batt.
Whatever transpired between the Drizzy and Rih Rih—presumably while he was on tour in Europe—left a lasting impression on the Toronto rapper. In the opening verse, he rhymes, "You must remember waking up in Paris with the blunt/ You must remember f----n' me like anytime you want/ What made us wanna act like we were married for two weeks?/ Now we're back in California, we don't even speak. That's a no, no."
He also admits to missing the mystery woman (a.k.a. Rihanna), and shouts out the bajan beauty's "squad" members, Jenn Rosales and Melissa Forde.
It's not clear how the song got out, but E Batt denies having anything to do with it. He tweeted Saturday (Aug. 23), "For the record I DID NOT leak VFT6. I was given an opportunity to record a verse on an early version. In the midst of that someone got ahold. Of it that SHOULD NOT HAVE and leaked the song! It's unfortunate that it was given to you guys in this way."
Before the leak, Drake already dropped a clear hint that he had Rihanna on the brain. He flashed her image on stage during the OVO Fest earlier this month, and the 26-year-old singer must've heard the call because she attended one of his concerts recently.
Views From The 6 is expected next year.
