Artist: Drake Album: Views Genre: Hip-Hop Label: OVO Sound, Young Money Entertainment It feels like Views (formerly Views From The 6) has been a shadow hanging over Drake since he announced it to Billboard all the way back in 2014.

Late last year, Norwegian rockers viseMènn released a visual accompaniment to their atmospheric post-rock jam “Begging You Please,” which features the band performing the song in a wooded area and two people who face a grim realization.

Artist: Pity Sex Album: White Hot Moon Genre: Alternative Rock, Indie Label: Run For Cover Records There’s typically this underlying expectation with every musical act that a second album has to be bigger and different than its predecessor.
