Just nine months ago, the world breathed a sigh of relief as Drake finally dropped his long-awaited sixth album Certified Lover Boy. The project arrived with 21 songs and guest appearances from Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Future, 21 Savage, Lil Baby, Giveon, Ty Dolla Sign, Lil Durk, Yebba, Project Pat, Masego, Tems, and Kid Cudi. Certified Lover Boy debuted with the biggest week of 2021 — a title that Adele’s 30 later took — and it went on to spend five weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Now, to the absolute shock of the world, he’s already prepared to return with his seventh album.
That’s right, Drake just announced that his seventh album Honestly, Nevermind will arrive at midnight and the world can’t believe it. The announcement dropped like a bomb from the sky, and it came less than 24 hours after Beyonce announced her seventh album Renaissance would arrive next month.
There aren’t too many details surrounding Drake’s upcoming album, but there are plenty of things to possibly look forward to. We may receive the first collaboration between Drake and Kanye since their 2017 effort “Glow.” We may receive another stellar track with Rick Ross or Lil Wayne. There’s so much more we could receive with this album, but we’ll have to wait a few hours to figure it out.
