Drake Announced "Scorpion" Album & Social Media Madness Ensued

2017 Toronto International Film Festival

On Monday (April 16), the rap star hopped on Instagram to make the big announcement by way of photo. In another, Drake has shared an image of a golden medallion with a scorpion symbol on it. Both are captioned "JUNE 2018", which is redundant in the case of the former, but who am I to critique Drake?

Beneath the album title shows the words "June Twenty Eighteen by Drake".

Drizzy's exciting news comes on the heels of his "Nice For What" track and music video release.

"God's Plan" spent a total of 11 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and was just the fifth song in history to spend its first 10 weeks on the chart at number one.

This means he's broken the record for having the shortest time between nabbing a number one single.

His song "God's Plan" topped the U.S. singles chart for 11 weeks - until being dethroned Monday by another of his songs, "Nice for What".

Drake, 31, has roots as a rapper but has increasingly gone in a pop direction and incorporated the infectious beats of Jamaican dancehall, most notably on his hit "One Dance", which is the second most-streamed song ever on Spotify.

Drake first announced that he is working on a new album last week at a Majid Jordan concert.
