Drake: Honestly, Nevermind [OVO Sound/Republic]

Drake took everybody by surprise last night when he announced that his next album was on the way. The rapper dropped his seventh solo studio LP, Honestly, Nevermind, about six hours later. The follow-up to last year’s Certified Lover Boy was executive produced by Drake, longtime collaborator Noah “40” Shebib, Drake’s manager Oliver El-Khatib, Noel Cadastre, and Grammy winner Black Coffee. The 14-track record also features extensive production from Black Coffee, Gordo, Alex Lustig, and Beau Nox. Congolese singer Mukengerwa “Tresor” Riziki appears as an additional vocalist on “Currents,” “Down Hill,” and “Tie That Binds.” 21 Savage is the album’s sole credited featured artist, appearing on the closing “Jimmy Cooks.”
