ESPYs Host Drake Announces “View from the 6” LP
Drake is taking a page out of J.Lo’s book for his latest record.
According to “Billboard,” the rapper’s new LP will be titled “View from the 6,” which is pretty close to Jennifer Lopez’s debut album, “On the 6.”
Much like her New York connection, “the 6” has a personal meaning for Drake – 416 and 647 are his hometown of Toronto’s “two most prominent area codes.”
If Drizzy was inspired by the “I Luh Ya Papi” singer, he could do worse: her “On the 6” sold more than three million copies when it was released more than a decade ago.
Drake’s last album, “Nothing Was the Same,” was released last fall. Tonight at 9pm, the singer – and former “Degrassi” actor – will get back to his TV roots, hosting the 2014 ESPYs for ESPN.
