Drake to Release New Album ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ Tonight
The sequel to Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” from the previous year has been released. In an Instagram post from earlier today, the rapper specified that his seventh studio album, “Honestly, Nevermind,” would be released tonight at midnight (June 16).
Despite the lack of information (or forewarning), Kanye West quickly liked the post, leaving hip-hop fans in suspense over who the album would contain. At his “Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert” in December of last year, Ye also invited Drake to perform with him.
The album’s track listing was made public by Drake on Thursday night along with the information that Noah “40” Shebib, Oliver El-Khatib, Noel Cadastre, and Black Coffee served as executive producers.

Lil Wayne, Kid Cudi, Future, Young Thug, Rick Ross, and 21 Savage were among the notable artists who collaborated on Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy,” which was released in September 2021.
The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts and was notable for its viral hits “I’m Too Sexy” with Young Thug and Future and “Knife Talk” with 21 Savage and Project Pat.
Drake released “Dark Lane Demo Tapes” and his 2019 compilation album, “Care Package,” between “CLB” and 2018’s “Scorpion.”
The announcement of “Honestly, Nevermind” follows another eagerly awaited album release: Beyoncé will release “Act I” of her upcoming album “Renaissance” on July 29.
After the critically praised “Lemonade,” which she unexpectedly released on Tidal in 2016, this will be her first official solo album.
During the debut episode of his SiriusXM radio show “Table for One,” Drake will as expected go into more detail about “Honestly, Nevermind” elements. On June 16 at 11 p.m. ET on Sound 42, the program will air an hour prior to the album’s release.
