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.

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.
