Drake releases new album Honestly, Nevermind

By | Published on Friday 17 June 2022


Drake has released new album ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ just hours after announcing its existence. So efficient. The record is a prompt follow-up to last year’s much-delayed ‘Certified Loverboy’, which came out in September.

In a message to fans that accompanies the new album on Apple Music, Drake rambles away as follows: “I let my humbleness turn to numbness at times letting time go by knowing I got the endurance to catch it another time. I work with every breath in my body cause it’s the work not air that makes me feel alive. That’s some real detrimental shit but that’s that shit my perfectionist mind doesn’t really mind because no one knows whats on my mind when I go to sleep at nine and wake up at five – unless I say it in rhyme”.

“I can’t remember the last time someone put they phone down, looked me in the eyes and asked my current insight on the times”, he goes on. “But I remember every single time someone shined a light in my eyes. I purposely try to forget what went on between some ppl and I because I know I’m not a forgiving guy even when I try”.

“My urge for revenge wins the game against my good guy inside every single fckn time”, he continues. “I got plans I can’t talk about with more than like four guys because the last time I shared em with someone on the outside… well, that’s another story for another night. I was tryna get thru that statement to get to saying I’m not at a time in my life where pats on the shoulder help get me by. I’ll take loyalty over an ‘oh my’ and emoji fire”.

“I know if it was a dark night where all the odds were against my side and my skill went to whoever took my life they’d done me off with a big smile and maybe even post it for some likes”, he then adds. “I know everyone that tells me they love me doesn’t love me all the time especially when I’m doing better than alright and they have to watch it from whatever point they at in their life”.

“I got here being realistic”, he concludes. “I didn’t get here being blind. I know whats what and especially what and who is by my side. Honestly… nevermind”.

So, there you go. While ‘Certified Loverboy’ was pretty heavy on collaborations, ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ features just one, with 21 Savage joining on closing track ‘Jimmy Cooks’.

The album is available to hear now in all the places you’d expect an album to be online. And here’s the video for one of its tracks, ‘Falling Back’:
