Drake is turning the big 3-0 on Monday (Oct. 24), and he’s celebrating his birthday with a special edition of OVO Sound Radio. He’ll be hosting the show alongside his manager Oliver El-Khatib, and he'll also be premiering mixes that have a high chance of containing exclusive songs.
But what’s the probability that we’ll get a new Drake record? Well, pretty high.
He and El-Khatib both liked Complex's Instagram post of the artwork for episode 32 of OVO Sound Radio. Drake answered our question (sort of) when we wrote: “New music?” Drake’s bullseye emoji indicates we might be on to something.
And if Drake does indeed release new music, he’s certainly been making sure that it’s in the front of our minds. Since the start of the Summer Sixteen tour with Future, the 6 God has slyly premiered new music and even straight up told a crowd in Tacoma, Wash. that he’s “about six, maybe seven new songs in. Just getting warmed up. I don't know what I'm going to do with it, I don't know what it's going to be, but what I do know is I can't wait to come back to the motherfucking Tacoma Dome and perform all that shit for y'all."
So, want to take any guesses of what it’ll be? Maybe something produced by London On Da Track? Maybe the first single off Beast Mode 16 that features Future and is produced by Zaytoven? Or maybe we get another collaboration with the Young Money head honcho Lil Wayne?
On Saturday, Drake wished 21 Savage a happy birthday and told his followers to tune in to OVO Sound Radio. A Drake and 21 Savage track? Oh boy.
Be sure to catch this Sunday’s OVO Sound Radio to find out.
