Drake’s long-anticipated album Views From The 6 finally has a release date — and a new single.

After hinting at new music on Twitter and Instagram, Drake unveiled a new song on Saturday during his show OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1. On “Summer Sixteen,” the rapper calls out everyone from Meek Mill to Kanye West (“Look man, Ye’s pool is nice / Mine is just bigger is what I’m saying”). Drake even takes Barack Obama to task for the president’s recent comments that Kendrick Lamar is the better rapper.  

Drake also announced that “Summer Sixteen” will be on Views From The 6, which is scheduled to be released in April.

“Summer Sixteen” is available now on Apple Music and iTunes.
