During his ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour stop in Houston on Monday night (Sept. 18), Drake expressed his gratitude to the hometown crowd, stating, “They say I’m from Toronto, Canada, but we might have to check the hospital records because y’all show me too much love in the H-Town. I love y’all.”
He later provided an update on his highly anticipated, though often delayed, album, remarking, “I’ve got my album dropping for y’all on October 6. I know I pushed it back but it’s for a good reason cause I’m trying to represent for the H-Town like I always do. Another classic on the way,” he enthusiastically added.
Initially set for release on September 22, Drake announced last week (September 16) that “For All The Dog’s” launch date had been pushed back. He took to his Instagram story, explaining:
“Alright, here’s my dilemma. I’m faced with either canceling shows to wrap up the album or pushing through to drop it before the final show,” Drake shared on Instagram. “I owe you all these memories we’re creating, and any places we’ve missed so far, we’ll be making up for sure.”
The album’s lead single, a collaboration with his former flame SZA titled “Slime You Out,” was released on Friday (September 15).
In the midst of crafting his new album and delivering tour performances, Drake disclosed that he’s making a move to Houston. He revealed this news to his fans during his concert at the Toyota Center.
“I’ve been searching for a long time, trying to find the perfect place for me to call home, a place where I truly belong outside of Toronto. And after all these years, I’ve finally found a spot in Houston, Texas. So y’all will be seeing me around,” Drake excitedly informed the audience.
