Sources are saying that the 6 God has been using his time off from touring to finish up the album and release it ahead of his upcoming Boy Meet Wold Tour in Europe.
“The push inside OVO right now is to finish and release the album before the new tour start,” sources told DancehallHipHop. “Most of the tracks were already recorded and this time off from the Summer Sixteen tour gave him some free time to go in the studio and wrap things up.”
Cortez Bryant and spilled some tea about Drake’s work ethics this year during his recent interview with Rap Radar. “[Young Money] is worth $51 million and more, now… With two or three Drake albums coming out this year, that pot’s big,” he said.
Last month, Drake told his fans that he has already recorded close to 8 new singles for the album. “I’m about six, maybe seven new songs in, maybe, you know what I’m saying,” Drizzy 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 mother f*cking Tacoma Dome and perform all that sh*t for y’all.”

The title of the album or release date are not yet known.
Drake has put the breaks on the remainder of his Summer Sixteen Tour due to a lingering ankle injury. He also announced his Boy Meets World tour of Europe which will see him performing on 26 shows across the continent from January through to march including six nights in London alone.
Will Drake’s new album arrive before the start of that tour?
