(AllHipHop News) The latest outcome of the ongoing “streaming wars” is the announcement that Drake’s upcoming album, Views From The 6, will be available only on Apple Music for a limited time. According to Buzzfeed, the LP will be exclusive to the service for the first seven days after its April 29 release.
Drizzy’s fourth studio album will just be the most recent example of artists presenting their work on a certain platform. The Toronto rapper previously dropped What A Time To Be Alive, his joint project with Future, via Apple Music. The service also exclusively hosted Dr. Dre’s Compton for two weeks.
Fellow rhymer Kanye West premiered his The Life Of Pablo on Tidal. In addition, the Jay Z led company had initial exclusivity rights for Rihanna’s Anti and Lil Wayne’s Free Weezy Album.
Drake’s relationship with Apple began when he signed a reported $19 million deal with the tech giant in 2015. The “Summer Sixteen” performer also has the OVO Sound show broadcast through Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio.
