I don't know how to feel about Drake. Since he made his 2010 debut with "You Can Thank Me Later," Drake has been unavoidable, a rapper whose popularity and acclaim is on par with Kanye and Jay-Z. Listening to his fourth proper album, "Views," I wonder how good is he? He can't really rap all that well, he can't really sing all that well, and his lyrics, are, well, a bit shallow. There's a lot of I got really famous, but, hey, it's kinda hard to be famous, but, also, I totally deserve to be famous. As he humbly says "Views already a classic." This album wore me out. It's 20 songs and 80 minutes long and it only picks up for the last time, the single "Hotline Bling." Rihanna, Future, and Partynextdoor guest. It is impressive how he got up on that building for the cover.

Views by Drake is an album that many didn't like and many liked. He seemed to change his way of music with it and took on a more pop sound with dancehall music which wasn't bad, but I felt like he had too much as he is a rapper. I think the album was still really good, but it had a lot of hype before it came and it didn't live up to it. Some of my favourite songs off of it are Keep the Family Close, Weston Road Flows, Redemption, and U With Me. Compared to other albums like Take Care and Nothing Was the Same this wasn't as good as it could have been. It still was pretty decent but I find he could have done a lot better. Still a recommend to take a listen to.

Views, Drakes fourth album was ok, but definitely nowhere near the hype. Everything wasn't bad on the album, songs like Controlla, Too good, and One Dance were all good songs and very popular, although ruined by the radio as they were overplayed. In my opinion Hype, Weston road flows, and Still Here are great underappreciated songs that should be given a shot. The major negative when it comes to Views is that there isn't much variety off songs. A lot of the songs sound the same. It also seems like Drake isn't rapping as much as seen in previous songs and albums such as Jumpman. Im a big fan of Drake, its obvious that Views is not his best work. With all the good and the bad I give the album a 3/5 rating

Drake's fourth studio album, Views was expected to be fantastic. Weeks of promotions and releases like 'One Dance' and 'Hotline Bling' were released while the album was still in creation. The releases that Drake picked were truthfully the highlight of the album, as I found once I truly listened to the entire album in itself, it was disappointing. Most of the songs were similar in length and beat, which added a boring effect and made it seem like all the songs were the same. There were some highlights to the album, such as the releases of songs like 'Pop Style', 'Controlla', and 'Too Good featuring Rihanna'. He swayed from his genre of rap/hip-hop to a more pop-sounding album. Many of the songs sounded like they weren't meant to be 'sung' by the Canadian rapper. I feel like he could've expanded his artistic skill more so that he could've produced a better and more artistically skilled album. This wasn't a situation where the pros outweighed the cons, and I truly didn't enjoy the album as a whole, but there were a few upsides to the album. I'd rate it a 2.5/5

Drake's fourth album Views was released in 2016 and were one of the most popular albums of 2016 with more than 2.3 million sales. Views have multiple genres of music in the album such as R&B, hip hop, pop and more that all somewhat fit together in the album which is interesting with different genres of music but disappointing for many reasons. First, the genres just didn't feel right to be mixed together in some songs and for me, some songs just felt to slow for him as a rapper but, there were still some good songs that were in the album. Popular songs like Hotline Bling and One Dance gained lots of attention and this album was nominated for Album of the Year and Best Rap Album at the Grammy's in 2017 along with hitting number 1 on US Billboard 200 many times. Although this album was popular in 2016, I personally didn't enjoy listening to it as much and today, I wouldn't really recommend listening to this album unless you really want to but there are many albums in all kinds of genres that are worth listening to compared to Drake's album Views. 2.5 out of 5. @Self-Disciplined of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
