Is Drake finally releasing an album? Rapper teases sixth LP with hilarious meme and fans can't wait
It looks like a new album by Drake is imminent. The Grammy-winning rapper took to his Instagram on July 13 to tease the uncoming studio album with a humorous meme. Along with the caption "😎 CHEFFETE," Drake's Instagram picture showed an Elizabethan-era-looking painting of a young man flirting with a woman while asking her if she's single. But let's not spoil the joke, you can check out the meme here.
Based on its content and since the meme consists of the words "single" and "album", this is probably Drake poking fun at trolls who diss him for releasing so many singles and, at the same time, reinforcing the fact that a new album is out soon. Regardless, what is important here is Drake's confidence to bring it up in the first place. Several fans shared their enthusiasm for it, saying "I need it", "slaps on de way" and "Lmao. Platinum too."
One fan said on Twitter, "People hate but I think he’s hands down one of the greatest lyricists we got. They hate on his pop s**t cuz they don’t like dancing no more!!!!!"
However, it looks like not all are enjoying the idea of a new album as some are saying "we don't want it". One user said, "This is why this mediocre artist has so many achievements in his career. He drops albums and singles every day. Like Beyoncé and Taylor said, artists don't make body of work anymore, they don't make albums. Ariana does that too but she is not mediocre at all but you get the point." Another added, "When we thought 2020 wouldn't get worse."
The latest update on the album came when Drake, who released his demos project 'Dark Lane Demo Tapes' back in May, shared a photo with the simple caption "80%" relating to progress on his next LP, according to NME.
A previous hint came in May along with the 'Dark Lane Demo Tapes' announcement where Drake wrote on Instagram, "My brothers @oliverelkhatib @ovonoel put together alot of the songs people have been asking for (some leaks and some joints from SoundCloud and some new vibes) DARK LANE DEMO TAPES out everywhere at midnight…also my 6th STUDIO ALBUM DROPPING SUMMER 2020!!! Lucky number 6 soon fwd." The note came with a pic of Drake looking like a ninja, so perhaps his teasing sneakiness could lead to it dropping any moment.
As noted by Drake, the upcoming highly-anticipated LP will be his sixth album and will follow the chart-topping 'Scorpion', which released in 2018.
