As Hip-Hop superstar Drake, born Aubrey Graham, nears the long-awaited release of his forthcoming 8th studio album “For All The Dogs”, the legendary rapper has shared a huge lead single featuring his ex-girlfriend and R&B pioneer SZA. Titled “Slime You Out”, the infectious rap record is produced by Noah “40” Shebib, BNYX, Noel Cadastre, D10 and the Boy himself.
While Drake announced the sprawling rap single with SZA, he further teased a debut collaborative effort with Yeat too. Whether the hard-hitting preview, which originally closes out the promo for Drake’s upcoming Nike NOCTA Glide sneaker, will find a spot on the LP remains to be seen.
Besides releasing the lead single, Drake has further delayed “For All The Dogs”. Reportedly, 6 God’s upcoming album will now arrive on October 6. As per Drake, the rapper is caught up between “finishing his album and cancel shows” or pushing back the LP release date by a couple of weeks.
“Okay my dilemma I am faced with is either cancel shows to finish the album or I complete the mission and drop the album before the last show,” Drake wrote on IG. “I owe you all these memories we are building and anywhere we have missed to-date we will be spinning back for sure. For All the Dogs October 6th. It’s only right…” the rapper said.

In July, Drake hinted at a probable release on 11 August 2023 or Hip-Hop’s 50th birthday. However, that didn’t come to fruition. Drizzy further announced that the Certified Lover Boy follow-up will drop this Friday instead before delaying his album for the 2nd time.
