Drake took the Internet by storm on Thursday night and dropped his surprise project If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late on iTunes. Much like Beyoncé’s 2013 album, it came without much warning. However, he did debut a short 15-minute film called “Jungle” earlier in the day.

The 17 tracks include appearances from Lil Wayne, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Travi$ Scott.
Drake had previously announced plans to release Views From the 6 as his fourth album. It’s unclear if he considers this an album or a mixtape. However, it was released via Cash Money Records.
Rumors of a mixtape surfaced in November after Toronto Raptors star DeMar DeRozan went on NBA TV and hinted that Drake had a new project coming in January.
