Canadian rapper, Drake has announced two treats for his fans which are a mixtape and a new album in the works.
His announcement gave flesh to the idea that while some people are finding themselves unusually productive in this period of Coronavirus lockdown, others are catching up on work and investing time into hobbies even in the isolation.
The Grammy award winner took to Instagram to reveal the release of the two body of works after nearly two years of career hibernation.
On Thursday, the singer dropped the mixtape titled: “Dark Lane Demo Tapes” which is made up of 14 songs, and featuring guest appearances from Chris Brown, Giveon, Young Thug and Playboi Carti.
The mixtape features guest appearances from Chris Brown, Playboi Carti and others.
Released at midnight on Thursday, the mix is made up of previously leaked tracks, releases from SoundCloud and “new vibes,” the musician said.
But the announcement that really got fans excited? The news that Drake will be releasing his latest album this summer.
The new offering will be his first studio album since “Scorpion,” which came out in 2018.
It’s been a busy few months for Drake. In April, Billboard announced that the rapper had become the first male artist to have debuted three songs at No. 1 on its Hot 100 songs chart.
The entry of his latest single, “Toosie Slide,” in the top spot helped him tie with Mariah Carey, who had three No. 1 debuts on the Hot 100 in 1995-97.
