Naturally, fans freaked out.
So what do you need to know about the new album? If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late has 17 tracks, which include features from PARTYNEXTDOOR, Lil Wayne and Travi$ Scott. Unlike Beyonce, Drake’s album doesn’t have accompanying videos and you can purchase each song individually.
The Verge reports that Drake dropped subtle hints about the release earlier that day when he posted a short film, called “Jungle,” to his website. In the video, Drizzy walks around Toronto to the tune of new music.
Of course, Feb. 13, 2015 is six years (yes, six years!) since Drake dropped his last project, a mixtape called So Far Gone. That spawned such hits as “Best I Ever Had” and “Successful.”
So, the obvious question remains — will Drake fare as well as Beyonce did when she dropped her surprise album in December 2013? Bey’s album has sold 2.2 million copies in the United States alone, no small feat in today’s music industry. Additionally, the album garnered Bey five Grammy nominations, and she ultimately walked away with three trophies. Not too shabby for an album that dropped unannounced!
