It was a big weekend for Drake as he hosted 2017’s edition of OVO Fest. Among bringing out many special guests, including French Montana, Cardi B and Tory Lanez, he also made another announcement. In a short Instagram clip that has surfaced from last nights festival, Drake says that he’s back to making his new album.
While many took Drake’s word on More Life’s “Do Not Disturb” as him taking a little break from music, that’s clearly not the case. OVO Fest had the internet in shambles once each special guest came out. Drake says that he’ll be recording his new album in Toronto.
“I’m back to making this new album. In Toronto. Just for you.” Drake said to a packed crowd in his hometown.
It’s not that shocking that Drake will make his way back with new music for our headtops. It seems like he’s been relatively tame this summer in terms of releasing music, at least in comparison to every other summer.
However, with More Life out, Drake definitely knew that his playlist would still be bumping for the remainder of this year.
Just a few weeks a go, it was announced that the majority of OVO Sound’s artists would be dropping this fall so there’s a good chance that while Drake focuses on recording the new album, his OVO Sound team will hold down the fall.
