It’s the musical collaboration fans could only dream of, until now.
If we told you weeks ago that a new album with both Drake and Kanye West would be in progress, you may have just laughed at us.
After all, Drake is currently on a huge tour with Future while Kanye is busier than ever including his Yeezy Season 4 collection that just debuted at New York Fashion Week.
But in a new interview with Vogue, the “Stronger” rapper delivered a huge surprise that will be music to any fan’s ears.
“We’re just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio,” he shared with the publication. “We’re working on an album, so there’s some exciting things coming up soon.”
And before you ask: No, a release date has not been announced quite yet.
Just last month, speculation of a possible collaboration began when a mysterious billboard appeared in the Los Angeles area. According to Billboard, the large green sign read: “Calabasas is the new Abu Dhabi.”
In addition, the logos of Kanye’s label G.O.O.D. Music and Drake’s OVO sound were featured at the bottom of the billboard.
If that wasn’t enough to get you pumped, Kanye recently dropped a hint at a possible collaboration during Drake’s OVO Fest in August.
“Toronto, I got one question for you. Is y’all ready for this album?” Kanye shared with the crowd. “Now, I’m not talking about Pablo. I wasn’t talking about Views. I wanna ask y’all right now, y’all ready for THIS album?” He then pointed to Drake, who came out on stage. Coincidence or something more? Only time will tell.
