Surprise! Drake Drops Secret New Album ‘Beyonce’-Style

Published: Friday 13th Feb 2015 by Rashad

Drake is clearly trying to break the internet.

Sending the net aflutter with the drop of his latest project, ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,’ similar to the rollout styles of David Bowie and Beyonce‘s latest releases, the set is soaring up Itunes as we speak from fans not knowing if it was a full length studio album or just a mixtape.

Unlike the duo above, he at least lent some form of warning when he shared a 15-minute short film ‘Jungle’ (seen below).  Have you been to iTunes to get your copy or do you need more convincing?

Tuck in below and let us know:


Despite reports that the ‘Started from the Bottom’ beau originally planned to unveil ‘Views from the 6’ as his quarternary release, ‘Too Late,’ released via Cash Money Records, is a 17-track long project featuring Young Money leader Lil Wayne and more.

Update:  Word has it the release is indeed a mixtape, upsetting many fans who purchased it on Itunes, only to find out it (for some time) was available for free on Soundcloud.

‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ Tracklist

1. “Legend”
2. “Energy”
3. “10 Bands”
4. “Know Yourself”
5. “No Tellin'”
6. “Madonna”
7. “6 God”
8. “Star67”
9. “Preach” ft PARTYNEXTDOOR
10. “Wednesday Night Interlude” ft. PARTYNEXTDOOR
11. “Used To” ft. Lil Wayne
12. “6 Man”
13. “Now & Forever”
14. “Company” ft. Travi$ Scott
15. “You & The 6”
16. “Jungle”
17. “6PM in New York”

    Drake!!! I can’t take it

  4. Quinton251 aka Lil Wayne Stan February 13, 2015

    Artist have dropped surprise albums long before Beyonce, stop acting like she invented something new. Anyways the album/mixtape is fire, Drizz came with the heat.

    • Hey Mrs Carter February 13, 2015

      NO ONE & I mean not a soul did it [and slayed] like Bey tho. Admit it.

      • OMG Logic!!! February 13, 2015

        Sure they did. Just because Apple is too cheap to upgrade their $hitty servers thus causing them to crash, doesn’t mean the 2nd coming of Christ happened when she released her album.

      • SipTheTruth February 13, 2015

        Bruce springsteen did.

    • Charlieyoncé February 13, 2015

      She made it popular though

    ^^ I’m one of those fans. Lol

    • FutureCIARA February 13, 2015

      DEATH!

    • Mark111 February 13, 2015

      Ha! I believe you can get a refund tho.

    • Lobe February 13, 2015

      Yes, I need my money back. I’m definitely not in the business of buying free albums. Drake should really becareful about carrying out stunts like this because it can upset fans (like me) who feels as if they were shorthanded. Definitely not buying View From The 6. At least when Beyonce did this, it was clear what was going on. If people got to wonder if it’s a CD or mixtape, then your PR team did a bad job.

      • igotstatellithowiseeit February 13, 2015

        But why not support him regardless??? People always want something free. I am 100% postive it wasnt free for him to make it.

      • Brian310 February 15, 2015

        If he is your fav then why not support him and be happy he is killing it with a mixtape

  6. Hey Mrs Carter February 13, 2015

    Oh 😀 #herimpact

  7. RihYonce February 13, 2015

    Love Drake for this !!!! He is one of my favorite rappers next to J. cole

  8. Queen O’ Whores February 13, 2015

    Ciara should release a surprise album.

    • TheElusiveLamb February 13, 2015

      She has been for the last 8 years

      • FutureCIARA February 13, 2015

        Your right, Her last surprise debuted with higher first week numbers than Mimis… So who was more of a surprise?? 55K?

      • February 13, 2015

        But you forgetting that your mine managed to chart higher than i bet even after more than 20 years in the game so don’t come for a legend when your fave as been on a decline since George bush was in office

      • BeyRihLiyah February 13, 2015

        lmaooooo

      • BeyRihLiyah February 13, 2015

        @futureciara don’t act like Butterfly didn’t outsell FLOPARAS whole Discography alone hell glitter even outsold ciaras discography

  9. RihYonce February 13, 2015

    He had the world buzzing everywhere , I think more popular A List artist should do this more , I hope Bey & Hov do it for their joint album

  10. SippingmyTea February 13, 2015

    yassss Drake be bringing some heat !

  11. Tyler February 13, 2015

    And that’s why “Beyonce” was AOTY material #ThatImpact

    • OMG Logic!!! February 13, 2015

      Many artists did released an album unannounced before Thighyonce. Jump off her cl!t for once.

      • RihYonce February 13, 2015

        Stop coming for her thighs they are beautiful and still have a gap lol , how do you look behind that keyboard Hun ?

      • Tyler February 13, 2015

        Alot, yet none of them have been nearly as SUCCESSFUL. So shut the f*** up!

    • KING RIH February 13, 2015

      So it wasn’t because of the music? Gotcha… Lol

      • Tyler February 13, 2015

        I never said that. I SAID that Beyonces surprise album cause a surprise release phenom….THINK BEFORE YOU TYPE.

      • Tyler February 13, 2015

        *caused

    • KeKe February 13, 2015

      So u saying she deserved to win mainly due to the way the album was released and not about the actual contents of the album?

      • RatedR February 13, 2015

        That’s exactly how I look at it . It’s simply because of the rollout , because nobody was racing for “4” as they were “BEYONCE” the difference between the two is the way it was released. I mean think about what was soooooo different between Beyonce content and that of Sevyn’s EP, Ciara’s Body Party , Rih’s Pour it Up and Every other R&B Chicks Content. Oh Her Name , but definitely not the Lyrics . Hive Sit.

      • Tyler February 13, 2015

        “Beyonce” was a solid body of work, the fact that the way it was released literally change the game was merely a bonus.

      • DTG February 13, 2015

        I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t buy albums I’m not interested in…no matter what their “roll out” was. Maybe you’re a lemming, but I’m not. And for the record: 4’s debut week sales numbers were higher than every one of Rihanna’s (and that was Beyonce’s lowest.) Hmmm.

  12. RatedR February 13, 2015

    Please stop saying EVERYONE is trying to be Beyonce . Because they are not , also it’s a mixtape not an album .

  13. FutureCIARA February 13, 2015

    ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZzzzzzz-

    Not here for a Drakeisha mixtape…

  14. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) February 13, 2015

    I’ll pass…

    • February 13, 2015

      Your loose feaces infested ass? No than you!

      • February 13, 2015

        Thank*

  15. MISHKA February 13, 2015

    How many albums under Cash Money does he got left?

  16. DanYiel Teflon February 13, 2015

    <~Not a fan of Drake so I'll keep it moving!!

  17. The Beysus Impact February 13, 2015

    How scary that he dropped it on Friday the 13th the same as BEYONCE….

  18. Mark111 February 13, 2015

    You can tell by the name and the cover that it’s a mix tape. But hey, most of y’all BOUGHT So Far Gone even tho it was free a whole year before.

  19. FixItJesus February 13, 2015

    Secret new album? I have the MyMixtapez app and they sent me a txt around 1AM this morning telling me to download Drakes new mixtape “The 6ix.” So I politely clicked download and lo and behold, I have all the same songs listed on this “secret new album.”

  20. Bitchplease February 13, 2015

    Just so you folks know before Bey released the ‘surprice’ album she went to a supadupa sell out arena tour to stimulate the hype so people were actually looking for to it. The key word here is sellout arena tour. Thank you.

  21. metzo February 13, 2015

    Drake is now the 7th artist in a row to do a Beyonce- style release since Self- Title. Her impact!! #AOTY.

  22. GAJE February 13, 2015

    Why does most of the songs have 6 in them and what does that signify or mean?!

  23. LC February 13, 2015

    I heard that he did this because his contract with Cash Money was for 4 albums. So now he can leave with Lil Wayne, if it comes to that.

  24. DEL BEY February 13, 2015
