COMES DRAKE

A Drake album said to contain 20 newly recorded tracks is due on 3/18 via YMCMB/Republic. According to U.K. sources, much of the LP was recorded with British and European collaborators during Drake’s January-February Boy Meets World Tour of Europe and the U.K., as he begins to make his brand more global.

Will the album be available for sale as well as streaming? Will there be a physical edition? Stay tuned.

During his six sold-out shows at London’s O2 Arena, Drake strongly hinted that his annual OVO Fest, which has been held in Toronto every summer since 2010, may be staged in London this year. He also teased a possible Young Money reunion tour, which would presumably include Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj as well as Drizzy himself.

In other Drake action, OVO Sound, the label he founded in 2012 with partners Oliver El-Khatib and producer Noah “40” Shebib, has renewed its distribution deal with Warner Bros. Records. The OVO roster includes PARTYNEXTDOOR, dvsn, Majid Jordan, Céline Nakouzi, OB O’Brien and Roy Woods; the label also has a stable of in-house producers.
