Drake confirms new album Scorpion will be released in June 2018


On Monday, April 16, the Canadian rapper posted a couple of photographs on Instagram that seem to pertain to his new record.

Yesterday, Drake surprisingly hinted at a new album arriving in June of this year with a photo of a scorpion pendant and an image of himself rocking a "Scorpion" branded jacket.

RollingStone confirmed that his album will be called Scorpion. In the caption of the message he writes, "JUNE 2018".

He also dropped a two-track EP in January featuring the songs "God's Plan" and "Diplomatic Immunity".

His new single "Nice For What" - assumedly from Scorpion - just took over "God's Plan" for the #1 spot on the US Billboard Charts.

Drake, 31, has roots as a rapper but has increasingly gone in a pop direction and incorporated the infectious beats of Jamaican dancehall, most notably on his hit "One Dance", which is the second most-streamed song ever on Spotify.

The Toronto superstar's latest single 'Nice For What' came out 10 days ago along with a music video that featured cameos from Olivia Wilde, Issa Rae, Tiffany Haddish and more.

Drake first announced that he is working on a new album last week at a Majid Jordan concert.
