Drake’s ‘For All the Dogs’ Album: Bad Bunny and Kevin Durant Join the Musical Journey

Drake’s Hot Summer Release

In the scorching summer season, amidst various delays, numerous arenas, and after another number 1 single, Drake released his fourth album on a challenging Friday morning after a two-year hiatus. The tour’s culmination took place in his hometown, Toronto.

Exploring Drake’s ‘All The Dogs’ Mixtape

Titled “All The Dogs,” Drake’s eighth solo studio album, which he considers a mixtape, includes 23 tracks featuring collaborators like J. Cole, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, SZA, and superstar producer Boi-1da. It’s adorned with hip-hop monikers such as Chief Keef, Yeat, Tezzo Touchdown, and Sexy Red.

In the credits, there’s a role for Kyon Devern, a basketball player from the Phoenix Suns, also known as A&R for “All The Dogs,” a character who is referred to as the organization’s organizer, helping to streamline business in the music industry. 

Drake’s Unconventional Album Release

The album includes tracks like “Promises in the Bahamas,” “What Will Pluto Do?,” “7969 Santa,” and “Virginia Beach,” with a track that raised eyebrows immediately because of its name, “Pouchie Tee,” a nod to Drake’s long-time rap rival from his father’s city, Pusha-T.

The album was released at an unconventional hour, 6 AM Eastern Time, deviating from industry standards. Drake took to Instagram to apologize to all his streamers, acknowledging that new albums are typically dropped on streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music at midnight.

A Slight Delay in Anticipated Album

This was the latest—and shortest—delay for a highly anticipated album. Drake, a constant chart-topper who takes pride in his consistent output, began teasing a new release shortly before the start of his “Atz All Ay Buller” arena tour in July, and he provided updates about his recording progress on most nights during the tour.

“All The Dogs” was originally set to be released on September 22nd, but fans’ expectations extended into the summer.

Drake’s Mysterious Album Teaser

Drake initially teased the album in June with a poetic announcement that made headlines through full-page newspaper advertisements. The ads, written in collaboration with Kinza Samir, featured a QR code on top of an image of two puppies, linking to a website that hinted at the album’s existence.

The release date wasn’t included, but it came with an audacious Drake song that was released in 2011, “Headlines”: “They say they miss the old Drake, girl, don’t tempt me.”

On Thursday, he designated the new album as “My Best Yet,” teasing the release of a video for “Charlotte at 8am,” the latest in a long-running series of time-stamped stamps starring his youngest son, Adonis, as a partner actor. The child also made an appearance in the meticulously crafted rendering of the album cover – not a dog, according to the artist – which works as an album cover for “All The Dogs.”

Drake’s Chart-Topping Streak

Before this album, singles like “Search and Rescue” were released in April, which reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 (though it’s not included in “For All The Dogs”), and “Slim You Out,” a feature with SZA, debuted at number 1 last month, marking Drake’s 12th chart-topping song. Billboard noted that this achievement tied him with Madonna and The Supremes for the fifth-most number 1 hits of all time.

This year, Drake also made appearances on tracks by rappers J. HUS, Central Cee, Young Thug, and Trios Scott.

Drake now boasts a total of 12 Billboard number 1 albums, including two released last year – the dancehall-influenced “Honesty, No Lies,” which dropped in June, and the more rap-focused “Every Loss” in November.

Drake’s ‘It’s All a Blur’ Tour

The “It’s All a Blur” tour, which also features 21 Savage, will conclude on Friday and Saturday at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. With over 50 dates across various venues, Drake’s tour was one of the biggest music events of this summer, marked by high demand following the pandemic and high ticket prices, which left some fans frustrated.
