Before Drake's fourth studio effort Views From the 6 makes its grand entrance this Friday (April 29), the 6 God will host a global listening party on Beats 1 Radio, Apple Music announced in a Tumblr post

For a special edition of the rapper's weekly radio show OVOSOUND Radio, Drake will sit down with Zane Lowe for what he describes as a "MAJOR interview" and presumably stream the album in full. Billboard has reached out to reps for Apple Music and Drake for comment.
