In case you hadn’t heard, Drake released his fifth album Scorpion on 29 June.
The record features 25 songs including the No.1 singles “God’s Plan” and “Nice For What”. Drake wrote his own “Editor’s Notes” for Apple Music, which say: “I hate when Drake raps. Drake sings too much. Drake is a pop artist. Drake doesn’t even write his own songs.
“Drake took an l. Drake didn’t start from the bottom. Drake is finished. I like Drake’s older stuff. Drake makes music for girls. Drake thinks he’s Jamaican. Drake is an actor. Drake changed. Anybody else > Drake …. Yeah yeah, we know.”
You can check out the album on Spotify below:
The album is Drake’s first project since 2017’s More Life, which was billed as a playlist. It is his first album since 2016’s commercially successful but poorly reviewed Views.
The first hint at a new release was dropped back in 2017 via the final line on More Life, where he promised: “I’ll be back 2018 to give you the summary.”
He then resurfaced in April with an Instagram photo which revealed the upcoming release of Scorpion and has since released three singles: “God’s Plan”, “Nice For What” and “I’m Upset”, all with accompanying videos.
