Drake Is Shrunken to Miniature Proportions After Releasing ‘Views’, Reveals He Doesn’t Talk to Nicki Minaj

Nothing like a little Drake to kickstart your weekend.

The OVO 6 God released his fourth studio album, Views, on Thursday night (Apr. 28) that features collaborations with Rihanna, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Future, and more. Drake preemptively released the 20-song track list and production credits on his Instagram account prior to the midnight release to give fans a taste of his Toronto-inspired record.

The artist sat down with Zane Lowe for an OVO Sound interview to discuss the album at length, noting that Jay Z’s verse on “Pop Style” was never by design.

“Jay didn’t really do a verse,” explains Drake. “Really, I was trying to get ‘Ye on it at first, and ‘Ye just sent it to me like that. Like, ‘Yo, Jay just kind of did my first few lines for me, and he was just here, and that’s how we flexed it.'”

While he claims that he doesn’t talk to Nicki Minaj much anymore, his “chemistry” with Rihanna for the success of their collaborations.”We do well together as a team,” he said. “I think we do great music together … I think [the chemistry] is what makes the records better, though. It’s something genuine there. We’re not forcing some story on people. A lot of the music that we make and the energy that we bring is genuine. We have a lot of genuine energy between us.”

Along with the album, which is available for download on iTunes and for streaming on Apple Music, Drake shared a series of photos with a miniature versions of himself sitting on top of things, as pictured on the cover of his album.
