Drake is dropping a new album right in time to save summer!
The upcoming release will be his seventh studio album since his debut release and smashing record “Thank Me Later” in 2010.
His following albums, “Take Care” (2011), “Nothing Was the Same” (2013), “Views” (2016), “Scorpion” (2018), and “Certified Lover Boy” (2021), also achieved major successes by topping both local and foreign charts.
The Canadian rapper’s seventh album comes as a surprise to fans as the music star gave no prior notice before announcing the release a few hours ahead.
Drake’s Seventh Studio Album Drops At Midnight
“7th studio album “HONESTLY, NEVERMIND” out at midnight,” the OVO Sound founder announced on Instagram under a picture of the album’s cover.
The post got over a million likes and still counting, while fans also took to the comments to commend Drake for being a mastermind.
Among the commenters were athletes Tristan Jass and Jahkeele Marshall, actress Lala Anthony, music creator ‘Mike Will Made It,’ public figure Jay Pharaoh, and musicians Gordo, Lil Yachty, Riicch, and Mahalia.
Marshall noted that summer had “officially begun” with the upcoming release, while Gordo declared that the piece would be the “greatest dance album of all time.”
Several other fans remarked with tons of fire emojis while also expressing their anticipation for the imminent release.
Shortly after the post comes another one, showing more details of Champagne Papi’s seventh album, including the title of each featured track.
The snap also showed the executive producers: Drake himself, Noah 40 Shebib, Oliver El-Khatib, Noel Cadastre, and Black Coffee.
The four-time Grammy winner merely wrote “Nvm” in the caption, and fans were quick to react to the post with surprise and matching emojis.

A fan wrote, “Bro, you were locked in and DIDN’T say a word about this. You different,” while another remarked, “Honestly?”
An avid supporter later wrote, “Bruh, you ain’t even give us a full day to prepare;” one other fan then exclaimed, “Out of No Where!”
More fans dropped surprise remarks, with some calling Drake “the omnipotent owl” and “insane,” whereas a fan noted that the musician had been working in silence but also could not wait for the “masterpiece.”
The 35-year-old songwriter’s seventh album announcement comes more than a year after he delayed releasing his sixth album, “Certified Lover Boy,” in January 2021.
The Blast reported that he announced on his birthday in 2020 that CLB would be released the following January but unfortunately, that did not happen.
Drake revealed in January 2021 that he was recovering from knee surgery several months before, so the album’s release had to be delayed, much to fans’ disappointment.
In his words, “I was planning to release my album this month, but between surgery and rehab, my energy has been dedicated to recovery.”
He added that he was “blessed” to be back on his feet, feeling great, and concentrated on the album; however, it would not be dropping that month.
Fans felt let down by the news as they had been excitedly anticipating what they described as the biggest album of 2020.

It is worth knowing that CLB was initially meant to drop in the summer of 2020; instead, Drake released his “Dark Lane Demo Tapes” mixtape, providing more than enough masterpieces to make up for CLB.
Among the masterpieces were “Toosie Slide,” “Chicago Freestyle” with Giveon, “When To Say When,” and “Pain 19943” feat. Playboi Carti.
The “Nice for What” Star Was Worth Over A Hundred Million Dollars After CLB Release
Following the release of CLB in 2021, Drake was reported to have had an estimated net worth of over 180 million dollars, including earnings from his numerous ventures.
The Blast previously detailed how he earned his money over the years and what he spent it on, also narrating his early life, acting career, and music business.
The “One Dance” musician was raised by his Jewish mum in Forest Hill after his dad left when he was five.
He eventually discovered his acting and singing abilities while attending the Forest Hill Collegiate Institute and made his acting debut in the Canadian teen show “Degrassi: The Next Generation.”
Over the years, Drake delved into music and released his debut mixtape in 2006, followed by more successful releases, leading to his wide recognition and numerous accolades.
He also made smart investments, including creating his record label and partnering with several successful brands like Nike, Air Jordan, and Apple Music.
