01 May 2020 Dark Lane Demo Tapes: Drake drops new project and gives releases date for sixth album
Drake has announced a surprise new project called Dark Lane Demo Tapes.
Arriving unexpectedly, Drizzy gave some insight into the new project with an announcement on his Instagram account: “My brothers @oliverelkhatib @ovonoel put together a lot of thee songs people have been asking for (some leaks and some joints from SoundCloud and some new vibes) DARK LANE DEMO TAPES out everywhere at midnight… also my 6th STUDIO ALBUM DROPPING SUMMER 2020!!! Lucky number 6.”
The project features seven guest artists in the form of Chris Brown, Future, Young Thug, Fivio Foreign, Giveon, Playboi Carti and Sosa Geek. Here is the tracklist: Deep Pockets, When To Say When, Chicago Freestyle ft. Giveon, Not You Too ft. Chris Brown, Toosie Slide, Desires ft. Future, Time Flies, Lnaded, D4L Freestyle ft. Future & Young Thug, Pain 1993 ft. Playboi Carti, Losses, From Florida With Love, Demons ft. Fivio Foreign and Sosa Geek, War.
Dark Lane Demo Tapes will also include Drizzy’s recent number 1 single ‘Toosie Slide’, which topped the Billboard chart and debuted at #2 over here in the UK. The project will also feature more collaborations with long-time collaborators Chris Brown, Future and Young Thug, as well as bringing to the life his rumoured collaboration with Brooklyn rapper Fivio Foreign. Although, there is no feature from a UK artist this time round.
Drake’s first five studio albums all landed inside the top 20 of the UK album charts, with his last two debuting at the number one spot: Thank Me Later (#15), Take Care (#5), Nothing Was The Same (#2), Views (#1), Scorpion (#1). It’s widely expected that at the very least, Dark Lanes Demo Tapes will land in the top five at a minimum.
