Drake is planning a big surprise.
The 6 God is reportedly dropping a new project called Dark Lane Demo Tapes tonight. On Thursday, fans noticed that several new tracks started to appear on music ID platform Shazam, with titles such as “From Florida With Love,” “Landed,” and “Time Flies.”
The project will reportedly consist of 13 tracks, including collaborations with Future and Young Thug (“D4L”), Chris Brown (“Not You Too”), and his long-awaited collaboration with Playboi Carti (“Pain 1993”). His chart-topping hit “Toosie Slide” and the previously-released “Chicago Freestyle” and “When to Say When” also appear on the tracklist compiled by fans.
Drake previewed his collaborations with Playboi Carti and Fivio Foreign during OVO Mark’s Instagram Live earlier this month, while “Desires” with Future was leaked by Drake himself in January.
It appears that the project is a mixtape to hold fans over until he drops the official follow-up to 2018’s Scorpion. “Album’s on the way, ’bout to slap head tops off,” he said during OVO Mark’s livestream.
Drake has yet to comment on the rumored project, but all signs point to new music.
