Drake’s Views Will Be On Pandora Today
Drake’s Views is supposed to be an iTunes/Apple Music exclusive for its first week on the market, but it seems at least one digital service is dipping into Apple’s business. Pandora just announced that the whole Views tracklist will be added to their audio library (or “ingested” as a Pandora rep explained it to Stereogum) today at 6PM EDT/3PM PDT.
Pandora users won’t be able to skip back and forth through the album on demand, but technically, this is a legal way to experience the album outside the confines of an Apple interface. Simply load up the Drake station or build one around Views singles such as “One Dance” and “Pop Style” and other album tracks will be filtered into rotation. If you really wanted to experience the album in sequence, you could even go through the tracklist and build a station out of each song one by one. Not exactly “Childs Play,” but it’s one viable solution if you’re itching to hear Drake rap “Why you gotta fight with me at Cheesecake?”
