In the closing lines to Drake’s last project More Life, the self-proclaimed six god said,
“My life is centered ’round competition and currency
Takin’ summer off, ’cause they tell me I need recovery
Maybe gettin’ back to my regular life will humble me, I’ll be back in 2018 to give you the summary.”
Well, It looks like it is finally time for the summary from Drake.
Drake posted these two pictures on Instagram to signify that his album that seems to be titled Scorpion is coming June 2018.
Personally, I believe this will be Drake’s best album to date due to his recent success. Drake has been trying to come back since the heavily promoted and overhyped album Views flopped. While he’s struggled to do so with some questionable verses and the hit or miss “playlist” More Life, Drake is about to bust out of his slump.
Since More Life, we haven’t heard much from Drake outside of the single “Signs” and a few guest verses here and there. But, as promised in 2018, he delivered with hit after hit. From Scary Hours which featured God’s Plan that was number one on the charts for 11 straight, only to be dethroned by Drake’s newest song that sampled Lauryn Hill, Nice for What. Then he’s knocked some guest verses out of the park with the “Lemon Remix” featuring NERD and Rihanna, Blocboy JB’s “Look Alive”, and Trouble’s “Bring it Back”.
It seems like he’s broken out of his cheesy pop song stage too, songs that include “Hotline Bling”, “One Dance”, and “Fake Love”. While they’ve had great success man of his fans knew that wasn’t close to his best and after hearing the verses he’s laid out in “Diplomatic Immunity”, “Look Alive”, and “Lemon”, Drake actually may be back for good.
Drake’s been on a hot streak lately, and he’s yet to have that true classic album to compete with his peers, such as J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar, but I believe this will be the one.
Drake is about to rule the summer, once again.
