When it comes to setting the music industry abuzz, few artists can rival the Canadian rapper, singer, and songwriter, Drake. Adding another chapter to his storied career, Drake has announced a new album, "For All the Dogs," that is set to drop on June 30th.
Interestingly, the release of the new album comes on the heels of Drake announcing his first-ever poetry book, "Titles Ruin Everything: A Stream of Consciousness" co-written with his frequent songwriting partner, Kenza Samir. With an array of poems, one-liners, and lyrics penned by the Grammy-winning artist himself and Samir, the book has been described by Drake as something he has never "wanted people to buy or support more in [his] life".
The poetry book, available for purchase via his merchandise site drakerelated.com and other select retailers, appears to have a deep connection to the upcoming album. In an innovative marketing move, Drake's team bought full cover ads in the New York Post that included a QR code leading to the "Titles Ruin Everything" website, which announced the new album. The site reads, "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 new album follows the successful launch of his previous works, "Her Loss," a collaborative LP between Drake and 21 Savage, and his own albums "Certified Lover Boy" and "Honestly, Nevermind". It is worth noting that Drake had teased about a project in collaboration with Kenza Samir last summer during the debut episode of his radio show, "Table For One".
Fans of Drake are eagerly awaiting the release of "For All the Dogs," as the rapper continues to evolve his artistry and push the boundaries of music and literature. While the connection between the poetry book and the new album remains a point of intrigue, one thing is for sure - Drake's desire to innovate and surprise his fans remains as strong as ever. Stay tuned for the release on June 30th, as the world waits to hear what the multi-talented artist has in store.
