The reviews are pouring in.
After endless rumours, teasers, leaks and ghostwriting allegations, Drake’s new album ‘Views’ has finally been released.
Its been three whole years since Drizzy dropped his previous official album ‘Nothing Was The Same’ and fans have been waiting anxiously for the follow-up since he first announced ‘Views’ in 2014.
The new 20-song album is filled with huge features – Rihanna, Future and Wizkid – to name a few.
Twitter has gone into complete meltdown as everybody’s first-listen reviews flood in.
Here’s what people are saying about Drake’s ‘Views’ so far:
First impressions were pretty good.
VIEWS— Rogan O'Connor (@Rogan_OConnor) April 29, 2016
This is the exact @Drake album I was hoping for. Conversational & RnB vibes, not trendy. That Take Care & So Far Gone feel. #VIEWS— Keith Powers (@KeithTPowers) April 29, 2016

And then people listened a bit harder and started hearing the quoteables...
'I'm looking at their first week sales like WHAT ARE THOSEEEEE' LOOOOL FFS #Views— Young OG (@Ahmed94_) April 29, 2016
"You wanna walk around naked in the kitchen— Snap: skvibemaker (@skvibemaker) April 29, 2016
Without running into one of my n****s,
Thats not the way we live it" #Views
"If I ever loved you, I'll always love you. That's how I was raised." #VIEWS— NovelistPrice (@Novelistprice) April 29, 2016
And all of a sudden everyone felt like it was 'Take Care' Drizzy again.
VIEWS feels like a Take Care 2— NovelistPrice (@Novelistprice) April 29, 2016
VIEWS is the 2016 edition of Take Care. The right amount of slow songs, the right amount of bangers.— NovelistPrice (@Novelistprice) April 29, 2016
If I play take care and views right after one another I'll probably get married by Sunday— M.W (@MickzWrites) April 29, 2016
But how does it rank against Drake's other albums.
This album has nothing on "Thank me later" "Take Care" and "NWTS" but it's a good project but weaker against his own work #Views #MyOpinion— #They (@AewonWolf) April 29, 2016
This the closest thing to Take Care and So Far Gone. #Views— duRANT. (@iDntWearCondoms) April 29, 2016
Views > NWTS > Thank Me Later > Take Care.— Bobby Shmurda (@TrillJordz) April 29, 2016
Although people weren't happy with the new version of 'Controlla'.
controlla without popcaan gotta be what vegan curry goat tastes like— Desus Nice (@desusnice) April 29, 2016
When you're ready to sing popcaans bit in controlla & its not popcaan pic.twitter.com/h0yVQR2uPj— princess (@tineekamonet) April 29, 2016
Drake released the wrong version of Controlla on purpose... He knows Popcaan spun the life out of him and he couldn't compete Kmt— Trizzy 9.85™ (@LiveLifeNJuice) April 29, 2016
Drake took Popcaan off Controlla but kept wiz kids breathing in One dance— ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (@Thatssotasha) April 29, 2016
Have we mentioned Future's verse on 'Grammys'.
When Future started talking on 'Grammys' before his part, you already knew it was gonna be flames. #VIEWS— MG (@malgharaballi) April 29, 2016
Yo, Future killed it on Grammys. I was hype. I felt like his hypeman. #Views— David Delisca (@DOdelisca) April 29, 2016
#VIEWS I think Future Killed Drake on Grammys and I never thought I would say that— DomisLive (@Domislive) April 29, 2016
Or the Beyonce 'Lemonade' comparisons?
#VIEWS & #LEMONADE are about to have men and women emotionally unstable for the next few months— DEV (@DEVCNY) April 29, 2016
If #LEMONADE made y'all break up, #VIEWS puttin y'all back together.— RIPBrother (@Scrilla___) April 29, 2016
It definitely has people in their feelings.
I've texted 8 ex's so far #Views— Matthew Piper (@OpTic_FormaL) April 29, 2016
#Views got me thinkin bout the girl I didn't wave to in 2nd grade...— Nick Hall (@TheNickkHall) April 29, 2016
Smh you can't Listen to #VIEWS at the gym, people will think this is sweat rolling down ya face, but it's actually tears— Neechi (@BigNeechi) April 29, 2016
Different Drake, same tears #VIEWS— Made (@MadeManJama) April 29, 2016
He's so honest on this album. This might be the first project where I feel like he doesn't care what you think about him personally. #VIEWS— OXTAIL GAWD (@ThatDudeMCFLY) April 29, 2016
Drake is a good rapper but he still hasn't made a classic album....unlike King Kendrick!#Drake #VIEWS #VFT6— Marv (@Marvelousmarv5) April 29, 2016
