Drake surprised his fans with two new songs “Diplomatic Immunity” and “God’s Plan.”
The 6 God came through on Friday night (January 19th) around midnight on the East Coast with two new fire singles. Before dropping the singles, Drake made a post on Instagram with what seems to be the title of his upcoming album or mixtape, Scary Hours. “Diplomatic Immunity” was produced by Nick Brongers and Boi-1da while “God’s Plan” was produced by Yung Exclusive, Boi-1da, Noah “40” Shebib, and Cardo.
Drizzy went after his haters on “Immunity” rapping, “Come at me and all you’ll get is the ballistic report, Booked a private room at Wiley’s, waiter twistin’ the cork, I got multi-colored rings like the Olympics, of course, At awards shows, cutting through the tension, of course.”
On “God’s Plan” he was a little calmer paying homage to his longtime friend and producer Noah “40” Shebib. “50 dub, I even got it tatted on me, 81, they’ll bring the crashers to the party, And you know me, Turn the 0-2 into the 0-3, Without 40, Oli, there would be no me, Imagine if I never meet the broski’s,” Drake raps.
Earlier this month, Drake shared a photo of himself in the studio while telling his fans that his just wrapped up an all-nighter. That post triggered a media frenzy surrounding his upcoming project. The Toronto rapper usually releases his projects towards the end of the first quarter of the year. So my guess here is he will release it sometime in March or April unless there are some unforeseen delays like what happened with More Life last year when he keeps changing the release date. Towards the end of More Life, Drake rap about taking a break from music leading us to believe that it would be some time before his next album arrives. That may not be the case after all.
Listen to both songs on Spotify and Apple Music.
