Sound the alarms: New Drake music has arrived.

Drizzy shared two new songs on Tuesday, and both are expected to appear on his next album Views From the 6. “Drake – Pop Style Feat. The Throne now available on iTunes,” he posted. (The Throne refers to Jay Z and Kanye West, who released Watch The Throne together in 2011.) Then he followed with, “Drake – One Dance Feat. Wizkid & Kyla now available on iTunes.” Both posts included the hashtag “#VIEWS” and both are exclusively available on Apple Music.

The releases come a few weeks after Drake surprised fans at SXSW in Austin, Texas with an OVO showcase. At the time he played no new songs but told the crowd, “Views From the 6 coming in how many weeks I hope you enjoy that sh–.” He also announced that he’d head out on tour this year.

Views From the 6 has been in the works since 2014, when the rapper revealed the album title and its reference to his hometown Toronto as the 6. Then in February 2015, instead of releasing the anticipated album, Drake released a monstrous 17-track mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

The mixtape went on to become the first album to go platinum in 2015 and helped Drake break records when the entire album charted on Billboard‘s R&B/ Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Since then, Drake debuted two Meek Mill diss tracks (“Charged Up” and “Back to Back“), “Hotline Bling,” which EW named one of the best songs of 2015, and released What a Time to be Alive, a collaborative album with Future.
