Nine months after dropping the chart-topping ‘Certified Lover Boy’ album, Drake sprung quite the surprise on his dedicated fans when he unexpectedly announced its successor would arrive June 17.

Titled ‘Honestly, Nevermind,’ the new LP – his seventh studio effort – comes as a 14-track set loaded with house and dance music. Executive produced by Noah “40” Shebib and Drizzy himself, ‘Honestly’ is dedicated to the late fashion designer Virgil Abloh.

And while it boasts the rapper’s usual suspects of production credits, there’s only one featured act: 21 Savage.
