On the same day that he announced the release date of his next album, fellow R&B/pop star Drake also announced the release of his new album. Like tonight
Drake announced on Thursday that he would be releasing his seventh studio album, Midnight, meaning West Coast listeners could hear it on the airwaves from 9pm. Pacifist.
The Toronto-born artist wrote on his Instagram account: In the middle of the night, the seventh studio album “HONESTLY, NEVERMIND” was released. An accompanying image showed what appears to be album cover art, with the title in gothic script overlayed on a multicolor shadow with a parental advisory warning for explicit content.
The “God’s Plan” and “In My Feelings” rapper provided no details beyond that. However, the 35-year-old is expected to share more about the album when he debuts the premiere episode of his SiriusXM radio show, “Table for One,” on Sound 42 at 8 p.m. Pacific.
“Honestly, Nevermind” follows the hitmaker’s polarizing 2021 album, “Certified Lover Boy,” which Times music critic Mikael Wood described as “irresistible even at its bleakest.”
Fans had already expected Drake to release new music this summer when a snippet began making the rounds on TikTok earlier this year. Few probably guessed it was out tonight, though.
