Drake announced that a brand-new record is on the way! The Toronto MC teased his upcoming musical endeavour only hours after unveiling his first poetry book.
To promote his brand-new poetry book ‘Titles Ruin Everything: A Stream of Consciousness’, by Aubrey Drake Graham and Kenza Samir, Drizzy purchased full-page advertisements in prestigious publications like the New York Post, Los Angeles Times and Houston Chronicle. The advertisement had a QR code that took viewers to the rapper’s website titlesruineverything.com to learn more about his next album.
Drake claimed on the website, “I made an album to go with the book. They say they miss the old Drake girl don’t tempt me. FOR ALL THE DOGS.”
The upcoming album does not have a set release date yet. The new album comes after the top-charting ‘Her Loss’ on the Billboard 200 in 2022, Drake’s collaboration with 21 Savage, and the 6 God’s ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ and ‘Certified Lover Boy’ albums.
Drake announced ‘Titles Ruin Everything’, a new collection of poems, one-liners, and lyrics that he and his friend Samir wrote together. Publisher Phaidon and other select retailers, notably drakerelated.com, are presently selling the collection.
“I don’t know if I have ever wanted people to buy or support something more in my life…our first book is available tmrw on @drakerelated and other select retailers,” the rapper captioned a picture of the all-blue poetry book.
During the first episode of his radio programme, ‘Table for One’, Drake hinted at the next album last summer. “Me and Kenza have a book coming out this year — we have a book coming out this year, a poetry book,” he stated.
