Drake pushes new album with Toronto pop-up shop

Canadian rapper surprises fans in the city's trendy Queen West neighbourhood

A single tweet from Drizzy caused a mad rush to Queen Street West in Toronto late Sunday afternoon.

Drake went to Twitter and Instagram to announce a pop-up store for his new album ‘Views from the 6,’ which is set to release this Friday.

The event, hosted by Beats by Dre, began at 5 p.m and carried limited-edition shirts flaunting the album’s logo.

He’s also launched similar pop-up shops in Los Angeles and New York, where first fans in line walked home with the new swag.

Hundreds of fans lined up within minutes.

Drake made a brief appearance at the pop-up to hand out a few shirts and address everyone in line.
