Drake's summer is shaping up to be a busy one.

The Hotline Bling rapper has announced plans for a 32-date North American tour timed to the release of his new album.

The Summer Sixteen tour will be headlined by the Toronto-born performer and Atlanta-based rapper Future.

The duo are currently on the Billboard charts with their collaboration track Jumpman.

The tour will make three stops in Canada, including one in Toronto on July 31 and Vancouver on Sept. 17.

A third date is slated as part of Drake's annual OVO Fest on Aug. 1, which will feature Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa.

Drake is ramping up for the Friday release of his fourth studio album, Views from the 6. It'll be available exclusively on Apple Music.

Late Sunday, he unveiled the album's cover art which shows him sitting atop Toronto's CN Tower with his legs dangling over the edge. Fashion and celebrity photographer Caitlin Cronenberg of Toronto captured the image.
