After building up anticipation with the mysterious phrase “FOR ALL THE DOGS” three months ago, Drake has finally dropped the curtain on his highly-anticipated album, aptly titled “For All the Dogs.” The rapper recently announced that the album will see the light of day at 6 a.m., much to the delight of fans eagerly awaiting his new musical endeavor. Alongside this exciting news, Drake has graciously shared the full tracklist for “For All the Dogs,” the follow-up to his 2022 releases, “Honestly,” “Nevermind,” and “Her Loss.”
In an unexpected twist, Drake also provided insights into the album’s production credits. Notably, basketball superstar Kevin Durant has been credited as having an influential role in the album’s A&R (Artists and Repertoire), showcasing the intersection of music and sports in this project. Furthermore, the album boasts an impressive lineup of executive producers, including Drake himself, along with the likes of Noah “40” Shebib, Oliver El-Khatib, and Noel Cadastre.
Originally slated for a September 22 release, “For All the Dogs” experienced a slight delay, with Drake rescheduling its debut to October 6. This move was motivated by his dedication to strike a balance between his recording commitments and his ongoing tour. Adding a personal touch to the album’s aesthetics, Drake’s son, Adonis Graham, contributed a heartwarming piece of artwork that graces the album’s cover. This touching creation and the young artist himself made a cameo appearance in the music video for the pre-album track “8AM in Charlotte.”
In the lead-up to the album’s release, Drake whetted fans’ appetites with two singles: “Search & Rescue” (although notably absent from the tracklist) and the SZA collaboration, “Slime You Out.” “Search & Rescue” cleverly incorporates a prominent sample of Kim Kardashian discussing her divorce from Drake’s long-time frenemy, Kanye West, sparking intrigue and speculation among fans. The lyrical content of “8AM in Charlotte” also raised eyebrows, as listeners pondered whether Drake was subtly taunting or dissing West.
The ongoing feud between Drake and Kanye West has been a rollercoaster of emotions for fans. It initially escalated in 2021 when Drake took aim at West in his track “Betrayal.” Things took an even more dramatic turn when Drake unexpectedly premiered West’s unreleased song “Life of the Party,” which contained some anti-Drake lyrics. However, the two rappers eventually buried the hatchet, performing together in Los Angeles. Sadly, the peace was short-lived, as West reignited the feud the following year.
