Drake announces first album for two years before releasing rare demo tapes
Canadian rapper Drake had some exciting news for fans as he announced his new album will drop during the summer before releasing demo tapes to get the party started
Drake has announced his latest album will be released this summer, leaving his fans in raptures.
The 33-year-old Canadian rapper had more good news for fans as he also revealed he is sharing new music on Friday, with Dark Lane Demo Tapes set to include a mix of leaked tracks and new songs.
The chart-topping star made the announcement on Instagram, writing: “Also my 6th STUDIO ALBUM DROPPING SUMMER 2020!!! Lucky number 6 soon.”
Drake’s new album will be a follow-up to 2018’s Scorpion and comes hot on the heels of his latest hit single Toosie Slide, which reached number two in the UK singles chart.
Drake has already confirmed the lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic has influenced the new record.
He appeared as a virtual guest on Diddy’s dance-a-thon fundraiser last month and said he had been working on the as-yet-untitled album for “a while,” saying he is “hyped” by it so far.
Drake said he was excited by having no distractions while putting together new music.
He said: “I remember the last time I had to sit down was when I tore my ACL (in 2009). And I made a great album out of that.

“Obviously God has us all inside the house right now. Definitely, it’s the most excited I’ve been about an album in a long time.”
He did not give any further details on the album, only saying it is “fresh and brand new”.
Fans were ecstatic and shared their thoughts on Twitter.
One wrote: “It’s May 1st, and Drake just dropped this fire. I Hope this is a sign that 2020 was really supposed to start in May.”
While another announced: “Jamming drake for the rest of the night and all day tomorrow… Do not contact.”
