What is a humble Drake fan to do with all of these new songs he's been dropping? He's been giving us all musical whiplash, releasing all of these singles for us to analyze and overanalyze. Just when we thought Drake's "Draft Day" reference to Jennifer Lawrence was going to be the most exciting rhyme he was going to drop this year, Drake released "0 to 100 / The Catch Up" on Sunday to tease us all with potential information on his next album.
The bad news is, we're going to have to wait until 2015 to get our hands on it. Drake hasn't said anything about the album outside of music yet, but it's not as though we don't all know he must be working on one considering how many songs he has out right now. We have no idea what the album will be called or what the cover art is going to be, but "Draft Day", "Days in the East" and now "0 to 100 / The Catch Up" all practically scream hey world, I'm Drake, and I'm working on new material!
The good news is we practically have all the confirmation we need that Drake is working on it, as well as a more specific date than "whenever". According to "0 to 100 / The Catch Up", "Listen up boy, you're better off eavesdroppin'. We already got spring 2015 poppin': PND droppin', OB droppin', Majid Jordan droppin', not to mention me droppin'."
Admittedly, he could be dropping anything besides an album come 2015. He could be dropping his pants so he can comb over them with his Drake and OVO-inspired lint rollers, though he'd probably keep that to himself. He could be dropping acid, though why you'd have to announce that a year in advance is beyond me. He could be dropping another single, though he seems content to do it randomly enough to keep his fans on their toes. However, the most likely explanation for these lyrics is that Drake is one of many artists who have plans to drop an album in Spring 2015 and we need it now.
If "Draft Day", "Days in the East", and "0 to 100 / The Catch Up" are any indication about what the album will sound like, then it's going to be another one of Drake's greatest. Is Spring 2015 here yet?
