Drake’s Album Scorpion Dropping This June
Ahead of the release of Drake’s hugely anticipated Scorpion album, we’ve gathered everything you need to know to get excited about the record’s drop.
His last album Views, which dropped in 2016, included guest appearances from Wizkid, Kayla, and Rihanna. The record was then followed by the mixtape More Life in 2017 and the Scary Hours EP a year later. Needless to say, we’re well on track for another full-length.
Given that Aubrey has taken to social media to announce that he has a new album dropping this summer, we’ve gathered everything we know so far about Drake’s forthcoming record.
The album is set to be a summertime banger.
For now, we know that the LP will be titled Scorpion and that it is scheduled to arrive in June. Drake recently made the announcement via his Instagram, sharing an image of a jacket embroidered with the album’s details.
Scorpion is a take on Drake’s star sign.
Following on from the aforementioned Instagram post, Drake went onto share a picture of an iced-out chain with a scorpion in the center of the pendant. Naturally, we’re assuming that the title is a reference to Drake’s astrological star sign Scorpio, given that his birthday is October 24.
“Nice for What” slated to feature on the record.
In recent weeks, Drake has dropped and appeared on a number of singles, including the crowd-pleasing “Nice For What.”
Released on April 7, the song features a Lauryn Hill sample and was accompanied by visuals featuring appearances from The Internet’s Syd, Black Panther’s Letitia Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, plus many more.
Drake is also rumored to debut another song with Lauryn Hill, but until then, check out the video below.
The rapper also appeared on Trouble’s “Bring It Back,” produced by Mike WiLL Made-It. The seven-minute track was treated to a black and white music video which you can also watch below.
