SANTIAGO, CHILE - MARCH 18: Drake performs during day two of Lollapalooza Chile 2023 on March 18, 2023 in Santiago, Chile.

To much disappointment, Drake fans were not blessed with a new album on Friday (Aug. 25). Fans expected an album to drop on Friday, and when it didn’t, “No Drake” began trending across social media platforms.

“Drake. Why I wake up to no album,” one fan wrote.

“Drake didn’t drop life has no meaning,” one fan sarcastically commented.

According to a since-deleted tweet from Amazon Music, it convinced fans that they would be bumping some new Drake last weekend.

“Drizzy’s son has a future as a cover artist. New @drake august 25th,” the tweet read.

Previously, on Sunday (August 20), @ThePopTingz on Twitter reported that For All The Dogs will also be arriving on Friday. “Drake’s new album, ‘For All The Dogs,’ will reportedly be released next Friday, August 25th,” they wrote.

Drake announced that his eighth studio album was on the way after he dropped his poetry book Titles Ruin Everything: A Stream of Consciousness.

“I made an album to go with the book,” the 6God announced when the poetry book dropped in June. “They says they miss the old Drake girl don’t tempt me,” he wrote before adding “FOR ALL THE DOGS” in all caps.

He co-wrote the collection of poems with Kenza Samir. He and Drake have been working together for years on several of the Toronto rapper’s projects, such as Views and If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late. The publisher’s website describes Titles Ruin Everything as a 168-page collection of never-before-published poems about “fame, romance, and relationships.”

For All The Dogs will follow Drake’s last album Her Loss. The album was released in November and is a collaboration project between the Toronto rapper and 21 Savage. Drake’s last solo album was Honestly, Nevermind which was released in June 2022.

Find out what we do know about For All The Dogs so far:

  • Taking Fans Back To The "Old Drake"

    This new album is for the “day one” Drake fans. Drake announced that he would release his studio album when his poetry book, Titles Ruin Everything: A Stream of Consciousness, went on sale in June. The book took you to a QR code that read: “I made an album to go with the book. They says they miss the old Drake girl don’t tempt me,” he wrote before adding “FOR ALL THE DOGS” in all caps. The “old Drake” he is referencing how he distinguished himself from his peers by singing and rapping as well as blending R&B elements into his raps during a time when trap music was rising.
    He did this with his debut album, Take Care and, most recently, his 2021 album, Certified Lover Boy. While we know that the album is on the way, there has been no single or visual released as of the time of this writing.

  • Nicki Minaj Feature

    Barbz, this album is for you too. Drake confirmed that Nicki Minaj will be on his upcoming album For All The Dogs last month.

    “Me and Nicki Minaj did our first song in like, a really long time. I got a lot of love for her,” he told the crowd during a performance for his It’s All A Blur Tour.

    Nicki confirmed Drake’s message by sharing a throwback photo of the two and tweeting, “Dricki,” a combination of both of their names.

    Both rappers were signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment in 2009. The two have previously worked together on “Moment 4 Life,” “Only,” “BedRock,” “Seeing Green,” “Make Me Proud,” and more throughout the years.

  • Bad Bunny Feature

    During Drake’s August 11 Inglewood tour stop, he brought out Puerto Rican reggaeton star Bad Bunny. In doing so he also shared with the audience that there will be a collab with him on For All The Dogs.

    “I wanna tell y’all something, because y’all are L.A. and we love you,” Drake told the crowd during a break between songs. “It’s been like six years since me and Benito did a song, so we got a song coming for y’all on my album and it’s real.”

    Drake and Bad Bunny teamed up for 2018’s “MIA” and on a remix of the PARTYNEXTDOOR track “Loyal.”

  • Album Cover

    The artist behind the album cover for his upcoming album For All The Dogs is none other than Drake’s son five-year-old son Adonis. The album cover is a grey stick figure portrait of a dog with red eyes on a black background. Drake welcomed his son in 2018 with French artist Sophie Brussaux. Adonis has also been present during the tour in which Drake had to address the crowd to behave since his son was in attendance.

    “Look, to be honest with you, I can’t talk about t—— tonight in LA because my son is at the show for the first time ever,” Drake could be heard telling the crowd. A fan posted a TikTok video of the moment on Saturday (Aug. 12).”So we’ve got to keep this real PG tonight. Y’all keep your bras on.”
