Honestly, Nevermind, Drake’s seventh studio album, has arrived. You may be surprised, and a lot of people are as it was announced and released in the space of a few short hours last night.

Back in March, the artist was seen on his instagram story in a music studio, sparking rumour that further music was on the way. Nothing was officially announced until late Thursday June 16.

Drake teamed up with esteemed South African producer Black Coffee on a number of songs on the album, continuing their long-standing colaboration. The influence of the techno sounds of Black Coffee can definitely be felt though the album, especially on the track Massive. House and electronic music is a keen theme throughout the album, marking a big departure from Drake’s traditional sound.

The change has got fans asking what it could mean for the future of Drake.

How has Drake described the album?

Its Apple Music listing includes a message from Drake that reads, “I let my humbleness turn to numbness at times letting time go by knowing I got the endurance to catch it another time.

“I work with every breath in my body cause it’s the work not air that makes me feel alive.

“That’s some real detrimental shit but that’s that shit my perfectionist mind doesn’t really mind because no one knows whats on my mind when I go to sleep at 9 & wake up at 5 – unless I say it in rhyme.

“I can’t remember the last time someone put they phone down, looked me in the eyes and asked my current insight on the times.

“But I remember every single time someone shined a light in my eyes. I purposely try to forget what went on between some ppl and I because I know I’m not a forgiving guy even when I try.

“My urge for revenge wins the game against my good guy inside every single fckn timeI got plans I can’t talk about with more than like 4 guys because the last time I shared em with someone on the outside…well that’s another story for another night.

“I was tryna get thru that statement to get to saying I’m not @ a time in my life where pats on the shoulder help get me by.

“I’ll take loyalty over an oh my & emoji fire.

“I know if it was a dark night where all the odds were against my side & my skill went to whoever took my life they’d done me off with a big smile & maybe evn post it for some likes.

“I know everyone that tells me they love me doesn’t love me all the time especially when im doing better than alright & they have to watch it from whatever point they at in their life.

“I got here being realistic.

“I didn’t get here being blind.

“I know whats what and especially what and who is by my side.


The album is available now so check it out.
