Last night, Drake surprised fans with a new mixtape, “Dark Lane Demo Tapes.” The new project consists of 14 songs and includes features from Future, Young Thug, Playboi Carti and a highly anticipated track with New York's Fivio Foreign. “Dark Lane Demo Tapes” incorporates some new songs as well as songs that have been previously leaked.
Drake gave credit to his friends for helping him with the mixtape, writing in an Instagram caption, “My brothers @oliverelkhatib @ovonoel put together a lot of the songs people have been asking for.”
Drake also took to Instagram to announce he has an official album in the works, “...also my 6th STUDIO ALBUM DROPPING SUMMER 2020!!!” Drake's last album "Scorpion" was released in the summer of 2018, and it seems like Drake's onslaught of releases won't stop anytime soon.
So if I understand correctly....everyone hates Drake, yet everyone listens to Drake?— NIS (@nisrinasbia7) May 1, 2020
You know that feeling when you’re listening to a new song and you know from the first beat that it’s going to drop so hard? Well that’s the whole new @Drake Album 😍— Pierino (@MonotPierre) May 1, 2020
