Drake Says He Has “Six Or Seven New Songs” Done

Drake has the year’s most successful album in Views, but if you canvass the commentary and reviews, it’s also his least enjoyable offering. So it’s no surprise that he’s already hard at work on new material. There’s the mysterious joint project with Kanye West, there’s a feature on a new Future single slated to drop in a couple weeks, and now he reveals some news about his own new stuff.

Last night (September 18) at his Summer Sixteen show in Tacoma, the star updated fans on his progress. “I’m recording new music. I’m about six, seven new songs in, maybe,” he said. “Just getting warmed up. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it, I don’t know what it’s going to be, but what I do know is I can’t wait to come back to the motherfucking Tacoma Dome and perform all that shit for y’all.”

He made the announcement during a concert, so we know how that goes. It’s basically as flimsy as any KTT message board rumor. Plus, Drake’s pretty much always working on new music, so this is “news” but it’s not, ya know, news.
