Earlier this week, Drake’s Beats 1 show OVO Sound Radio premiered a remix of Frank Ocean’s Blonde track “Godspeed”, courtesy of OVO Sound signees dvsn, that was absolute fire. In that same glorious hour of programming, another piece of dvsn’s work surfaced in the form of a drastically extended version of Drake’s VIEWS track “Faithful.” Now it has appeared online for us to all enjoy, and it is eight full minutes of glory.
The original version of “Faithful” appears midway through Drake’s mammoth new record, and features both dvsn and Pimp C. At nearly double the length of the OG track, the new extended mix is about as immersive an experience as you can get. It includes an entirely new verse in addition to a mellow as hell outro masterminded by dvsn.
This extended cut arrives just as VIEWS is breaking records right and left. The album has hit number one on the Billboard 200 again, now making it its 13th nonconsecutive week atop the charts. And Drake revealed via Instagram that the album became the first in history to hit a billion streams on Apple Music. Oh, and he’s still in the midst of touring his Summer Sixteen tour as well. So you could say that lil Drizzy has quite a bit to celebrate.
Drake’s VIEWS short film “Please Forgive Me” is out now on Apple Music. The album is out everywhere, stream it below via Spotify:
