On April 29, Drake graced the world with a new album Views (rumored/originally titled Views From the 6). Views takes a deep dive into Drake's personal and emotional world. Drake is a Scorpio, and his music represents all aspects of that—the songs are powerful, moving, and it would sting like hell to be the girl on the other side of some of these lyrics (we hope it isn't you, RiRi!). Views requires a ton of dedication to listen and sift through, but once you do, you'll be feeling all of the feels. As the wonderful Drake said himself, "You sit and pray hoping that the stars align." He gets it.
