Drake Teases New Album As "God's Plan" Makes Chart History
Drake's 2018 is off to an auspicious start. His Scary Hours EP dropped in January and yielded the smash single, "God's Plan," which just surpassed 10 weeks in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. With fans hotly anticipating whatever the Canadian rapper is cooking up next, Drake stirred the pot this week by teasing his new project on Instagram.
The photo, which appeared in Drake's Instagram story on April 1, shows Drizzy in album mode, head down, looking tired, with the caption to match: "You can see the album hours under my eyes," proof that even with a No. 1 record on the charts, Drake doesn't seem to be slowing down one bit.
The 10-week run atop the Billboard Hot 100 by "God's Plan" makes Drake's the first male solo artist in history to keep more than one single in the chart's top spot for double-digit weeks. The first, his global hit "One Dance" featuring guest vocal appearances by Wizkid and Kyla held the spot for 10 weeks back in 2016.
This latest new album tease comes less than two weeks after Drake revealed on an Instagram live session that he's been in the studio with Murda Beatz, saying, "New single dropping soon produced by Chef Murda." With "God's Plan" still holding strong at No. 1, perhaps it will take the 6 God from Toronto himself to knock it down.
