Drake is teasing his new album Scorpion on his social media accounts, but has he revealed the exact release date of his new music?
'Scorpion' Release Date
On Monday, April 16, the Canadian rapper posted a couple of photographs on Instagram that seem to pertain to his new record. One of the photos shows the 31-year-old wearing a shiny bomber jacket, which bears the words "Scorpion" and "June Twenty Eighteen" on the back.
In the second photo, Drake snapped a diamond-studded gold necklace with a scorpion design at its heart. Th caption reads "June 2018."
Immediately, fans have assumed that the new record will be released in two months and Rolling Stone has already confirmed that the album is titled Scorpion.
Drake's last full-length album More Life was released over a year ago. He also dropped a two-track EP in January featuring the songs "God's Plan" and "Diplomatic Immunity."
Earlier this month, he released the music video for "Nice For What," which starred several popular Hollywood actresses including Rashida Jones, Olivia Wilde, Tiffany Hadish, Emma Roberts, and Zoe Saldana.
Drake first announced that he is working on a new album last week at a Majid Jordan concert. He went onstage to tell the crowd that he is back in his hometown of Toronto, Canada to record.
Drake Replaces Himself At Number 1
The posts came shortly after Drake had replaced himself on the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with "Nice For What." After 12 weeks, "God's Plan" finally let go of the number 1 spot of the song charts to make way for another track from the chart-topping artist.
It makes Drake the only 13th artist to achieve such feat in the history of the songs chart. He follows The Beatles, Usher, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, The Black Eyes Peas, Nelly, and Taylor Swift.
In addition, the "Hotline Bling" rapper broke another record in the UK charts with "Nice For What." Drake has reportedly overtaken The Beatles after topping the Singles Chart for the second time this year.
Drake has broken the record for having the shortest time between two number 1 debuts. The first and last artist to achieve the feat was the Fab Four who followed "Get back" with The Ballad of John and Yoko" in 1969.
