Views is the fourth studio album by Canadian rapper Drake. It was released on April 29, 2016, by Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records. Recording sessions took place between 2014 and 2016, with the production that was primarily handled by his longtime and frequent collaborator 40, alongside with each of these several producers, including Nineteen85, Maneesh Bidaye, Kanye West and Jordan Ullman, among others. The album was supported by five singles: "Hotline Bling", "One Dance" featuring Wizkid and Kyla, "Pop Style" featuring The Throne (Jay Z and West), "Controlla" and "Too Good" featuring Rihanna. Views remained at number one on the US Billboard 200 for 13 non-consecutive weeks.

"One Dance" became Drake's first number-one single in 10 countries as the lead artist, including Australia, Canada, the UK and the US. The single spent 10 weeks at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and 15 weeks on the UK Official Single Charts.

As of August 2016, the album has sold 1.4 million copies in the United States. Views became the first album to accumulate one-billion streams on Apple Music. On December 1, 2016, Views was certified 4× platinum. Views is nominated for Album of the Year and Best Rap Album at the 59th Grammy Awards. Additionally, "Hotline Bling" is nominated for Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Rap Song, and the single version of "Pop Style" featuring The Throne is nominated for Best Rap Performance. – Wiki

“This fourth album, which arrives on the wave of huge crossover hits ‘Hotline Bling’ and ‘One Dance’, has an epic running time of 81 minutes – Drake’s longest yet. Given that its 20 tracks generally tackle the same theme – namely the trials and tribulations of Toronto-based singer-rapper Drake – ‘Views’ should be a slog. But remarkably, his signature brand of downbeat introspection remains gripping…

With collaborator Noah “40” Shebib co-producing 13 of the 20 cuts, ‘Views’ sticks to Drake’s murky hip hop sound, but there are brilliant chinks of light. ‘Weston Road Flows’ is Mary J. Blige-sampling R&B, ‘Controlla’ and ‘With You’ have glitchy dancehall-style beats and ‘Child’s Play’ is a banger based on New Orleans bounce hit ‘She Rode That D*ck Like A Soldier’. ‘Too Good’, a pouty duet with Rihanna, already sounds like his next big smash.” – NME
