This is NOT a drill!
Drake announced he’s dropping a new album tonight (June 17). On Instagram, Drizzy said, “7th studio album “HONESTLY, NEVERMIND” out at midnight.” Take a look:

Not Drake dropping his album tonight after Beyoncé said late summer is hers. A business man, a Beyoncé stan. I too would get out her way.

Drizzy also has a new radio show called Table For One debuting tonight. Honestly, Nevermind is the follow-up to his 2021 Certified Lover Boy. At the time, the album reached No. 1 on the charts, beating Kanye’s Donda, which was the biggest release prior to CLB.
Last year, the Recording Academy nominated Drake for Best Rap Album (for CLB) and Best Rap Performance (for “Way 2 Sexy”) for this year’s award show. Drizzy withdrew himself from the show, Pitchfork points out. Although he’s won four Grammy awards, he’s been critical of them in the past.
It’s unclear who will be on the album; we’ll keep you posted.
