After delays, a release date that never came to be and numerous posts on social media, Drake's long-awaited album, 'For All The Dogs,' has finally arrived on Spotify and other digital media outlets, after the Canadian rapper revealed the 23-song track-list overnight and stating the release date would be 'October 6 at 6am EST.' Forgive us for not believing him initially - longtime readers of this very article are well aware we've been burnt by the "Hotline Bling" performer before.
If seeing is believing also - here you go; the eighth studio album in full!
“For All The Dogs,” the eighth studio album from Canadian emo-rapper Drake, was initially given a release date after the rapper stated that the new album is set to drop “in like two weeks” during a concert in August 2023. The album would mark the performer’s third album in as many years, after “Honestly, Nevermind” in 2022 and “Certified Lover Boy” in 2021.
In front of a sold-out crowd at Madison Square Gardens on Wednesday night, Drake addressed the album situation by informing the audience “Make new friends. If you drink, drink some liquor. If you smoke, smoke some weed. And if you like somebody, like my dad says, keep f****ng.”
"I will be back soon. I have an album dropping for you in, like, two weeks or some s**t. But until then, just know, you’re always with me and I’m always thinking of you. Everything I do is for you. Every time I step in that booth, I hope I make you proud.”
Billboard, Amazon and even ourselves had a release date of August 22 2023, with promotion around the new album coming in the form of a book of poems by Drake as a forerunner to the work. Drake’s new album marks his return to a solo record, as he recently collaborated with tour mate 21 Savage’s album, “Her Loss,” in November last year. The rapper also took to social media to share the album cover, drawn by his son Adonis, overnight on Instagram further reinforcing the imminent release of the album.
Drake is currently in the midst of his US tour, “It's All a Blur,” alongside 21 Savage and Lil Yachty, which is set to conclude in Columbus, Ohio on October 9 2023. The closest performance he will be undertaking to the proposed album release date would be his Kia Forum, Los Angeles performance on August 12 2023 - so expect that to be somewhat of an album release party for the rapper.
