OVO Sound boss Drake doesn’t like waiting around too long. Months after dropping his chart-topping Scorpion album, the hip-hop heavyweight has promised to soon start production on its immediate follow-up.
New footage has emerged of Drizzy last night (November 7) breaking the news to a jam-packed Canada crowd.
“Okay, six shows left. I guess, you know, I guess – I’m gonna tell you what I’m going to do. Because I keep having nights like this that remind me why I love my job so much, I promise you that as soon as this tour is over and maybe I take a little break, I’m gonna get right to work on a new album so we can be back right here in Edmonton and have a new party.”
A few weeks ago, Drake’s rap rival Pusha-T appeared to take a shot at him releasing Scorpion as a double album.

In early July, Pusha reflected on his Drake dispute and promised to listen to his Scorpion album.
“He said what he said, I said what I said, now it’s done. It stayed how it was supposed to stay, just words,” grins Pusha. “It was definitely good for hip-hop. What has been more energetic than this?” On Drake’s new album, Scorpion, he addresses Pusha’s revelations about his child with the lyrics: “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.” Will he give it a listen? “Hell yeah! I gotta have something to compare Daytona to, don’t I?” he says. (The Guardian)
