The album is 52 minutes long and has no features, except for one appearance by fellow hip hop artist 21 Savage in the latest song “Jimmy Cooks”.
The release of Drake’s album came just hours later Beyonce announced its upcoming album “Renaissance”, which will be released on July 29. Fans couldn’t help but speculate that the messages, which came only hours after hour, may not be a coincidence, but it was still a great day for music lovers.
Drake also released a new music video to accompany the album for the song “Falling Back”. The music video shows Drake’s wedding, where he marries an army of brides, with NBA player Tristan Thompson appearing as his best man.

The album’s hit songs include “Calling My Name”, “Texts Go Green” and “Tie That Binds”, but overall, based on people’s reactions on social media, the album seems to be doing great and is likely to become a regular on playlists. many people.
