Drake enthusiasts will need to relish his latest musical offering for a tad longer than they might have expected. That’s because the artist shared on Friday that he’s pressing pause on his musical endeavors to prioritize his wellbeing.
Hot off the press with a whopping 23-song album, “For The Dogs,” the rapper spilled the beans on his upcoming plans during the most recent episode of “Table For One,” his SiriusXM radio gig. Turns out, he’s gearing up to invest some serious time into himself and his inner circle.
“I’ve been having the craziest problems for years with my stomach,” Drake confessed. “I need to focus on my health and I need to get right.”
But that’s not all. The chart-topper also has his sights set on showering love and care on his nearest and dearest, including his little guy, Adonis, aged 5, who he parents alongside French artist Sophie Brussaux. In a cute father-son collab, Adonis not only features in “For The Dogs,” but he’s also the creative genius behind the album’s cover art.
“I got some other things I need to do for some other people that I made promises to,” the “Hotline Bling” singer said. “I have a lot of other things that I would love to focus on, so I’m going to lock the door on the studio for a little bit.”
Drake shared that he’s unsure of exactly when he’ll make a return to the recording booth, hinting it could be “maybe a year…maybe a little longer.”
The 36-year-old Canadian musician gave fans a sneak peek of the radio episode, posting a snippet on his Instagram story along with the words, “See ya when I see ya.”
And while he’s gearing up to hit the stage in Toronto this Friday and Saturday for his “It’s All A Blur” tour, the final details for the remaining five gigs in Ohio, Louisiana, and Tennessee are still up in the air, as per his official website.
