Canadian singer and rapper Drake has unveiled the cover art for his upcoming album, For All The Dogs. The project’s artwork was hand drawn by the artist’s son Adonis and sees a childlike interpretation of a grey dog.
Drake (real name Aubrey Graham) teased the album earlier this year and revealed that a book of poetry will accompany the body of work. In a press release, the Canadian native explained, “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.
Last month, the ‘In My Feelings’ vocalist told fans the album would arrive “in like two weeks”, though that has yet to happen. However, the book has been released. Furthermore, at a California concert earlier this year, Graham assured fans hat he “got a chance today to listen to my album” and that “it’s coming real soon”.
Many details about the album have been unveiled. While at a Los Angeles it-stop on his ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour alongside 21 Savage, Drake declared that the Puerto Rican singer Bad Bunny would feature on the project and told fans, “I want to tell y’all something ’cause y’all are L.A., and we love you. It’s been like six years since me, and Benito did a song. So, we got a song coming for y’all on my album!”
Drake’s most recent project, Honestly, Nevermind, saw the emcee experiment and divert from his tried and tested trap-soul style by incorporating elements of house music into the body of work. However, akin to Beyoncé’s ‘Break My Soul’ track, many saw the attempt as disingenuous.
A journalist for the UK music publication NME declared the project “[gave] him the creative boost that his recording career has been crying out for recently.” However, only the sonics shifted while the lyrical content remained in the realm of R’n’B.
Allowing his son to be involved in the release of this upcoming album is a sweet gesture on Graham’s behalf. However, many of his fans are over the roll-out and are desperate for the music. Unfortunately, the album has yet to receive a release date.
