Drake has released a new video single titled “8am in Charlotte.” The video opens with his 5-year old son Adonis explaining the concept of his drawings, revealing that the album cover for “For All The Dogs” isn’t a drawing of a dog as previously described by media houses and fans, but a goat.
“So daddy’s name is next to the goat does that mean that daddy’s the goat?” Drake asked to, which Adonis responded Yes.”
The conversation sets the tone for Drake to assert his dominance, as he confidently boasts, “things get kinky after 15 years of dominance,” over the beat crafted by Conductor Williams.
The third verse subtly addresses Drake’s enduring feud with Pasha T and Kanye West: “You n——s obsessed with me and it’s not on no hetero vibe/Handle beef so quiet you think that I’m letting it slide. Next thing you know we tiptoeing past enemy lines. Diss me so long ago we making your memories fly… I’ll probably hold a grudge against you guys till I’m 75.”
The video, shared on social media, showcases Drake and Adonis performing in a dimly lit room, with Adonis donning a shirt boldly proclaiming “Hate Survivor.”
The track was released ahead of the release of Drake’s upcoming album, For All the Dogs, which is set to arrive this Friday. The album’s presumed lead single, “Slime You Out,” featuring SZA, received a diverse range of reviews after its drop last month.
