Today (Oct. 6) Drake drops his long awaited eighth studio album “For All The Dogs.” Originally slated to arrive September 22, the new LP serves as a follow up to 2022’s Honestly, Nevermind.
Back in June, Drake announced “For All The Dogs” alongside a promotion for his poetry book, “Titles Ruin Everything,” co-authored with songwriter Kenza Samir; “I don’t know if I have ever wanted people to buy or support something more in my life,” he wrote in the announcement post.
The album boasts a total of 23 tracks, including already popular singles “Slime You Out” featuring SZA and “8am In Charlotte.” Additionally, it features collaborations with 21 Savage on “Calling For You,” J. Cole on “First Person Shooter,” Yeat on “IDGAF,” PARTYNEXTDOOR on “Members Only,” Chief Keef on “All The Parties,” and many more.
Prior to the album’s release, Drake confidently stated that “For All The Dogs” has the potential to become a classic. He shared, “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 said during his It’s All A Blur tour stop in Houston.
Even his father, Dennis Graham, hinted at the album being some of the best music he’s heard from his son. He took to Instagram to share his excitement, saying, “had the pleasure of sitting in my son’s dressing room and listening to this new album and I must say that it is some of the best music that I’ve heard him do. And I’m sure that every Drake fan throughout the entire world is going feel this one, everything about ‘For All The Dogs’ is what we’ve been waiting for. Congratulations son, I really feel this one.”
Hours before the LP’s release, Drake revealed he won’t release anymore new music for a while, I probably won’t make music for a little bit” he commented during his Table For One show.
