Initial reviews of Drake‘s new dance album Honestly, Nevermind are skewing on the negative side. The OVO head honcho has heard the chatter and he has responded.
Early this morning (June 17), Drake was partying the night away at what appears to be some sort of album release event. During the party, Drake took time to address the bad reviews and memes that were being made in response to his new non-traditional project. In the clip, the Honestly, Nevermind track “Calling My Name” is playing in the background.
“It’s all good if you don’t get it yet. It’s all good,” Drake says. “That’s what we do. We wait for you to catch up. We’re in here, though. We’re caught up already. On to the next. My goodness.”
Drake decided to try something different with his seventh solo album, which is his attempt at trying house music. The new album features 14 song and only one guest appearance from 21 Savage. Most of the production was handled by Carnage, Black Coffee and 40. Most fans were not expecting the sharp contrast from Abrey’s normal chunes and responded with negative critiques.
“Drake really made a album full of songs that you hear in the background of a shopping mall,” one user opined.
Forever 21 even started trending due to people comparing the album to the fashion store’s vibe.
“It’s giving me…very much forever 21, hollister, abercrombie & fitch, hobby lobby background music, but it is an album!” someone else added.
It appears fans who were left with a sour taste in their mouths won’t have too long to be upset. Drake announced on Thursday night (June 16), he will be dropping Scary Hours 3 soon. Despite the non-glowing reviews, Honestly, Nevermind is doing numbers. It has already become the biggest dance album in Apple Music history in regard to first-day streams.
