On the heels of celebrating the No. 1 debut of his latest single, "Nice for What", Drake has made a decision to bless us with the name of his next studio album. In another, Drake has shared an image of a golden medallion with a scorpion symbol on it.

Drake released the star-studded music video for "Nice For What" earlier this month. The project which will be the Toronto rappers 6th studio album and his third release in the past couple of years, after dropping his 4th studio album "Views" back in 2016, & his "playlist" project "More Life" in the spring of 2017. Kanye West, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and others will always bring the internet to its most hype stages with the announcement of new music and Drake enjoys the same privileges.
