Good news, Drake fans! The former Degrassi star and current crooner/rapper/October’s Very Own hasn’t released an album since 2013, the well-received Nothing Was the Same.
He literally just dropped his mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late on iTunes, a la Beyoncé.
Track names range from the short but sweet (“Legend”, “Energy”) to the mysterious (“Star67”, “You & The 6”). Guests include PARTYNEXTDOOR (a fellow Canadian) and Lil Wayne. The closing track, “6PM In New York” might be a callback to “5AM In Toronto”?
Either way, clearly Drake is making moves by dropping a surprise album right before Valentine’s Day. And it looks like he’s been dropping hints for a while, including references to song titles via Twitter and Instagram.

Started from the bottom now he’s on iTunes for $1.29 a track or $12.99 for the entire album! Get Listening!
“Happy Valentine’s Day, world. XOXO Aubrey.”
