5 Names You Might See in the Credits for Views From the 6


 April is the month that Drake's long awaited Views From the 6 is dropping.  Drake and the OVO camp have been doing a pretty solid job at not letting any songs or info about the album leak.  He's also had a pretty successful year despite a beef with Meek Mill, in which it was revealed that Quinten Miller had written parts of some songs for him.  If we are being completely honest though, every rap artist in the industry takes song concepts and lyrics at some point (whether indirectly or blatantly).  Drake is a great songwriter, but there is no doubt he will be getting inspiration from some artists. Check out our list below of some artists you might see on the credits of Views From the 6.


1. PARTYNEXTDOOR- Amidst all of the Kehlani drama, PND has been writing hits left and right; he even wrote Rihanna's "Work" PND is an influential sound to OVO and I'm sure Drake will be utilizing some of PND's talent for his highly anticipated Views album.   


2. Nav- Nav is an upcoming rapper/singing hailing from the 6.  His sound definitely has an OVO vibe.  Drake has a knack for showing Toronto rappers love, so I wouldn't be surprised if Drake decides to call on Nav to be on Views From the 6.  Yea it's a little bit of a long shot but who knows? 


3. Amir Obe- Amir is another rapper/singer who has been kind of under the radar for the past few years; but with a few fire mixtapes under his belt and some PND collabs, OVO rumors have been in the air.  No one knows if Amir Obe is officially involved with OVO but I could definitely see him being somewhere in the credits for Views.


4. Majid Jordan-  Majid Jordan has been exponentially growing and gaining popularity.  Their sound is highly unique, but has the OVO vibe we all love.  Drake got Majid Jordan's help on his smash single "Hold On, We're Going Home" so don't be surprised if you see Majid Jordan in the credits next to another hit single from Views.


5. Aubrey Graham- Ok so this name is not a might be, its a definite.  Despite the fact that Drake might source some creative inspiration from other artists, let's not forget that Drizzy is an incredible songwriter.  His lyrics are above-par, his hooks always hit, and his song ideation is arguably the best in the game.  You can bet your last dollar that a huge majority of the songwriting will be done by Aubrey Graham himself.
