It’s no secret that Drake enjoys showing love to his friends who he mentions in his music as his “dogs.” Since the title of Drake’s newest album is For All The Dogs, we decided to take a trip down memory lane on previous songs he has referred to his friends as “dogs.”
Drake Releases Lead Single For All The Dogs
The lead single for the album is Drake’s first-ever collaboration with SZA According to his album announcement, the “old Drake” is back. This rings true in Drake’s opening line to “Slime You Out.”
“I feel like y’all don’t need love/You need somebody who could micro-manage you/You know what I’m sayin’? Tell you right from wrong,” he sings.
Later in his verse, he hypes himself up, telling the woman he’s better than her new man. He also calls her out and says that her choice to pick the other guy over Drake is childish.
“I met the n—- you thought could replace/How were there even comparisons made?/Bitch, next time, I swear on my grandmother grave/I’m slimin’ you for them kid choices you made/Slimin’ you out, slimin’ you out, slimin’ you out,” he sings.
To promote the song, he used a photo of Halle Berry being slimed at the 2012 Kids Choice Awards, which she did not approve of.
He told fans originally that For All The Dogs would be released on September 22, but due to his current tour with 21 Savage, plans have changed.
“Okay, my dilemma I am faced with is I either cancel [the]show to finish the album or I complete the mission and drop the album before the last show,” Drake wrote on his Instagram Story on (Sept. 16). “I owe you all these memories we are building, and anywhere we have missed to date we will be spinning back for sure.”
“For All the Dogs, October 6th it’s only right,” he concluded.
Drake’s last date for the It’s All A Blur Tour is in Columbus, Ohio on Oct. 9.
