Drake Brings His Woes to Miami
By: Stephanie Fonseca
It’s been a pretty eventful week for Toronto’s very own. Initially named “Views from the 6” but later shortened to “Views,” Drakes very anticipated album was released this past Friday, April 29.
But that wasn’t all, Drake also announced that he will be co-headlining with Future who also has been releasing an overabundance of music.
The tour takes on the name of Drake’s first track to drop in 2016, called Summer Sixteen, which was not on the new album “Views.”
Besides touring with Future, Summer Sixteen will have guest appearances by Roy Woods, DVSN and other special guests.
Being his first tour since his 2015 Jungle tour, people have high expectations and are eager to see what magic he brings to the stage. Ever since the Jungle tour, Drake has released two mixtapes, an album and multiple hit singles, making fans are enthusiastic to see what the set list will be. What people know they can expect is variety. With hard hitting rap songs from his mixtape “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” and joint mixtape “What a Time to be Alive,” to a softer ”take care-esque” vibe from the newly released album “Views.” But even with the release of “Views,” Drake said in an interview with Zane Lowe on OVOSound Radio that there is more of his music to look forward to this summer.
Since his 2012 Club Paradise Tour was at the BankUnited Center, Drake was ready to change locations to a bigger arena. However, the last time Drake took the stage for a tour concert date in Miami was November 2013 for his “Would you Like a Tour?, and Miami is ready to have him take the American Airlines Arena stage again. On Future’s side, expect it all. With two albums and four mixtapes to go off of, one thing is for sure, there won’t be a lack of songs to choose from.
No one can ignore the hype that both Drake and Future have been bringing. With their joint mixtape debuting at #1 on Billboard’s top 200, and selling over a million certified units having the record go platinum, it’s indeed quite a time to be alive.
With the arsenal of music that Drake and Future are putting out, Summer Sixteen Tour might be the talk for all of summer ‘16.
Due to the popularity of the highly-anticipated performances, Drake added more dates to his “Summer Sixteen” tour, including another night in Miami.
Mark your calendars for August 30 and 31 in Miami at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the Summer Sixteen tour are on sale, but are expected to be sold out soon.
