Another Canadian superstar, , was also on hand to celebrate with Drake.

Bieber showed his support for Views, and his newly shaved head, at the rapper’s launch party and with his review of the album on Instagram.

“Spending the day listening to #views,” he wrote.

“Congrats drake you did it again… if you haven’t got it yet go download #views”

Drake returned the love. “Make some noise for Bieber one time. That’s my guy,” he told the crowd before embracing the “Sorry” singer.

Drake is well on his way to having his biggest opening week ever, as Nothing Was The Same currently holds that record at 658,000.

Drake stands to benefit from a new rule established by the RIAA that now includes streams in an album’s overall sales numbers, even if those streams came prior to the album’s release.

Factor in the hundreds of millions of streams for “Hotline Bling,” “Pop Style,” and “One Dance,” and it’s no wonder Drizzy is having the best week ever.

Views, which features , Future, and PARTYNEXTDOOR, will remain an iTunes/Apple Music exclusive for one week before hitting other digital platforms.
