Drake has delayed the release of his eighth studio album, For All The Dogs. Initially, the Toronto-area native was slated to release his latest LP on Friday, September 22, but he has pushed the release of the project back to Friday, October 26 due to conflicts with his ongoing tour.
“Okay, [the] dilemma I am faced with is [to] either cancel shows to finish the album or I complete the mission and drop the album before the last show,” he told his fans.
“I owe you all these memories we are building, and anywhere we have missed to date, we will be spinning back for sure.”
Drake’s It’s All A Blur Tour is currently slated to stop in Houston, Charlotte, Atlanta, Miami and Nashville before concluding in Columbus, Ohio on October 9, 2023 at the Schottenstein Center. Additionally, he is reportedly working to reschedule shows that were planning to take place in Denver and New Orleans.
While his intense tour schedule has prevented the release of the entire LP, Drake did tease fans with the release of the project’s first single — “Slime You Out” featuring SZA. The five-minute track marks the first time that the two artists have collaborated. For now, it will serve as the album’s lead single until more is revealed.
