Drake Delays “For All the Dogs” Album Release as He Rides the Tour Wave
In a move that’s got fans howling with anticipation, Drake has decided to push back the release date of his much-anticipated album “For All the Dogs” to October 6. Why the delay, you ask? Well, it’s all because of his whirlwind “It’s All a Blur Tour” alongside the one and only 21 Savage. The rapper took to Instagram to break the news, and it’s safe to say that this decision was no walk in the park.
In an Instagram story that surfaced this morning (thanks to our diligent friends at Newsound), Drake let the cat out of the bag, or should we say, the dog? He said, “Okay, my dilemma I am faced with is either cancel shows to finish the album or I complete the mission and drop the album before the last show.” Now that’s a real doggone dilemma, isn’t it? But fear not, he’s got a plan: “I owe you all these memories we are building, and anywhere we have missed to-date, we will be spinning back for sure. For All the Dogs October 6th. It’s only right…” Can we get a round of ap-paws for that dedication?
Originally, “For All the Dogs” was scheduled to grace our ears on September 22, but Drake decided to give us something to bark about a little later. Just last week, on September 15, he gave us a taste of what’s to come with the single “Slime You Out,” a collaboration with the one and only SZA, from the upcoming LP.
Now, let’s rewind to June when Drake first teased “For All the Dogs” with the release of his poetry book, “Titles Ruin Everything.” In a clever twist, he included a QR code in newspaper ads for the book. Scanning that code led fans to a website with a message that set the stage for the album: “I made an album to go with the book. They say they miss the old Drake, girl, don’t tempt me. FOR ALL THE DOGS.” Woof, talk about building anticipation!
And what about that album cover? It’s a real gem. Drake’s 5-year-old son, Adonis Graham, lent his artistic skills to create the cover art, featuring a white dog with striking red eyes. It’s safe to say that this album is a family affair.
Now, if you’re wondering when this tour de force of an album will drop, mark your calendars for October 6. That’s the day you’ll finally get to sink your teeth into “For All the Dogs.” And speaking of wrapping things up, Drake and 21 Savage will conclude their “It’s All a Blur Tour” on October 7 at the Scotiabank Arena in Drake’s hometown of Toronto. So, get ready to unleash your inner “Rich Flex.”
Stay tuned for more updates, and remember, the dog days are far from over.
