The Toronto native always proudly has his city on his back and revealed during his OVOSOUND Radio interview that Views was influenced by the changing seasons in Toronto.

”The album is based around the change of the season in our city. It starts around in wintertime. Starts with “Keep The Family Close.” Winter to summer and back to winter again. It’s just to show you the two extreme moods that we have. We love our summers but we also make our winters work…You start to value your days a lot more when most people won’t go outside type of thing…It creates a different person. I thought it was important to make the album here during the winter.”

To go alongside the release, Drizzy also included a digital booklet containing some lavish photos (See images below).

A classic sneaker. Originally released in 1917, the simple design is still worn by many today.
