Drake opens up on Top Boy, Skepta and ‘VIEWS’ in interview with Zane Lowe

The world locked in last night for a very special episode of OVO Sound Radio, where, not only did Drake première ‘VIEWS’ in it’s entirety, but he also candidly spoke toZane Lowe in a very rare interview.

And, from Top Boy to Skepta (who didn’t make the album this time round), ‘VIEWS’ toKanye, he had quite a bit to say. Here are the best bits:

On Skepta:

“We just got to link up and decide, ‘What does a Drake and Skepta song sound like?’”

“I’m excited to hear his project…’Man‘ is crazy.”

On Top Boy and acting:

“It’s kind of out there that I’m working on Top Boy.”

“I got something nice coming up in May. I’d love to go back to acting. It’s all about the right decisions”


“I hope that it brings joy to people’s lives. Just bringing joy to people is pretty much my goal.”

“There’s some harsh truth on this album. At least it’s truth.”

“The album is based around the change of the seasons in our city. Winter to summer and then back to winter again.”

“This album is probably my highest level of vocal performance. I was listening toStevie Wonder and Alabama Shakes.”

On Kanye:

“We’ll just sit and collaborate. We have a few things…You never know, he’ll call me tonight and say, ‘I’m putting these two songs out tonight.’ He’s one of my favorite people period, in the world. I love Ye. He’s a really good guy. I grew up with him as a role model. Always given him credit that’s why we’re here right now.”

“It’s amazing to be his friend…We can link each other and discuss anything. Feeling a way on this or just leisure talk, we have a great relationship. I hope we get more music out. We were supposed to do a mixtape together an album together.”
