Drake has been teasing his upcoming album, For All The Dogs, throughout the summer, starting with a QR code placed in select newspapers in late June. The album has become a recurring topic during his ongoing It’s All A Blur Tour with 21 Savage. On August 21, Drake revealed that his five-year-old son, Adonis, created the album’s cover art. More recently, on September 6, photos of Drake wearing various multi-colored clips in his braids circulated online, leading fans to speculate that the album’s release date would be September 22.
That same night, Drake confirmed their suspicions. He posted an old video on Instagram of his father, Dennis Graham, performing in Memphis, Tennessee, for Stormy Monday With Dennis Marks while casually smoking a cigarette. Along with his band, he covered Albert King’s “Crosscut Saw.” Drake captioned the video, “FOR ALL THE DOGS SEPTEMBER 22.”
Drake will also perform his second of back-to-back It’s All A Blur Tour shows at Desert Diamond Arena on Wednesday night, further building anticipation for For All The Dogs. On September 22, Drake will celebrate the long-awaited release during his It’s All A Blur Tour stop at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. You can find all of the remaining tour dates here.
