Drake Is Working On A New Album

It's only been a few months since Aubrey Graham, aka Drake, released his most recent project, More Life (it's actually still at number 21 on the Billboard 200); nonetheless, it seems like the Canadian rapper is ready to head back to the studio.
Yesterday, Drizzy performed at his OVO Fest in Toronto and at the end of the concert told the crowd in front of Toronto's Budweiser stage, "I'm about to go back to making this new album in Toronto just for you. I'll see you next year, we'll be bigger, we'll be better. I go by the name of Drake, this a OVO Sound thing for life."
Drake dropped his most recent studio album, Views, just last year, which he just picked up 13 trophies at this year's Billboard Music Awards for. More nominations are likely to come for 2017's More Life, which isn't technically an album. So it seems like there's a chance that Drake might be facing off against himself for some awards in 2018, if he can hurry up and get this new LP done.
Information surrounding the record remains scarce as the announcement just came last night, but we are certainly hoping those Taylor Swift collaboration rumors are true. Just think if they both appeared on each other's albums… It would totally break the streaming record Drake just earned via More Life.
