Drake Introduces Apple Music - 720p HD (WWDC 2015)
Drake talked 'Views From The 6' at Apple's conference last night.
Drake joined Apple's camp last night as the war between streaming services heated up.
The Toronto rapper took to the stage of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference to introduce Connect, a social networking feature for artists that's part of the tech company's newly unveiled streaming service Apple Music.
He also hinted that his forthcoming album, 'Views From The 6', will be premiered on Apple Music. “As I’m working tirelessly on this next album, this comes at the perfect time for me,” said Drake. “Given the great success of my last mixtape, which went directly to iTunes, I can’t wait to incorporate Apple Music and especially Connect into what I’m doing next. I’m really excited about what I’m working on.”
Drizzy's latest mixtape, 'If You're Reading This, It's Too Late' was given a surprise digital release on iTunes and also Spotify. He is rumoured to have signed an exclusive deal with Apple which the New York Post claims cost the company $19m (£12m). The 'Know Yourself' rapper was previously been linked to Jay Z's Tidal streaming service but reportedly dropped out three days before the celebrity-filled announcement.
Also at Apple's conference last night was Drake's long time collaborator The Weeknd, who debuted brand new song 'Can't Feel My Face.'
The release date for Drake's forthcoming album has not been confirmed.
