Some Views on “Views”
Chris has spent quite a lot of time with Drake’s music; sadly, James has not. This week they go track by track, talking production, themes, sequencing, promotion and the associated lingo of Drake’s recently released fourth studio album, Views (Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records). The sales are through the roof, but some fans and critics feel it’s a slick but ultimately safe release for a savvy and nimble superstar. James tries to relate and understand Drake’s honesty, self awareness and struggles with women. Chris tries to provide knowledge and context. They talk to SoSuperSam who is on tour in Berlin. She shares some interesting words about her beloved Drake, R&B and the recording process. Did Drake kill it, phone it in or just stay the course?
