Nine months after dropping Certified Lover Boy, Drake is back with more.
Following days of rumors that he was preparing to release a summer mixtape, he announced that he was actually getting ready to drop his “seventh studio album,” and it was coming very soon. As in, immediately. By midnight, the full 14-song album had arrived: Honestly, Nevermind.
At the end of his radio show on Sirius XM right before midnight, Drake hinted that this isn’t all we’ll hear from him this summer. He’s also preparing to drop another Scary Hours EP and a poetry book. But for now, it’s time to dive into the music on Honestly, Nevermind.
