Drake: Of Views, Poptrixxx, and Perspectives


If you’ve been wondering why there’s more Rihanna and less Nicki in his videos lately, Drake has the answer(s) for you now that his latest album, Views From the 6, has dropped. And, as you can imagine, it has something to do with her other, lesser half. He says:

“I don’t really talk to Nicki. Another person I have a lot of love for. She dealt with me how I would expect her to—with class. I always have respect and love for her. Unfortunately, we haven’t spoke.”


As for the rumored feuds between Jay-Z and Kanye, Drake had this to say:

“Sometimes Jay-Z and I  just fall on opposite sides of the spectrum. It’s always mutual respect but sometimes it has to be from afar. Ye is one of my favorite people in the world…I hope we get some more music out. We were supposed to do a mixtape, album together.”


And of his collaborations with Rihanna, Drake has lots to share:

“It wouldn’t be a record without Rihanna, would it? We do well as a team. I was like I think I have one that would follow this one up really nicely. It was like a flawless victory when she sent it back. Every nuance, every cadence was perfect…That’s what makes the record. We’re not forcing some story on people. A lot of the music and energy we have is genuine. We have a genuine energy.”
