Drake performs at the Fader Fort Presented by Converse during the South by Southwest Music Festival on Saturday, March 19, 2016, in Austin, Texas.

As Drake's forthcoming album Views From The 6 prepares for landing next month, two new cuts a la Drizzy have surfaced online.

The first dubbed "Controlla" is a smooth, hip-swaying number featuring Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan. The Toronto rapper (real name Aubrey Graham) switches up the tempo with a folk-y ballad labeled as "These Days."

Drake's 'Views From The 6': Tweet Hints at Release Date

"I've been out walking/ I don't do too much talking these days," he sings on the latter, which is a semi-cover of the original by singer/songwriter Jackson Browne and recorded by Nico. "These days, I seem to think a lot about the things I forgot to do."

Drake's previous releases include "Summer Sixteen" as well as his cameo on Rihanna's dancehall chart-topper "Work," which has led the Billboard Hot 100 for its sixth week.

Billboard has reached out to Drake's rep for comment.
