Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Drake has re­vealed he's work­ing on a new al­bum. The 'One Dance' rap­per head­lined his OVO mu­sic fes­ti­val in his home­town of Toronto, Canada on Mon­day night where he told the au­di­ence he's set to re­turn to the stu­dio to pre­pare his fol­low-up to the hugely suc­cess­ful 'Views'. Speak­ing on stage, with the back­drop of 2016 LP be­hind him, Drake told the crowd: "Im go­ing to go back to mak­ing this new al­bum in Toronto, just for you." It comes af­ter the 30-year-old rap­per re­leased 'Signs' for fash­ion brand Louis Vuit­ton. The track was un­veiled at the fash­ion brand's Spring/Sum­mer 2018 cat­walk show at the Do­maine du Palais Royal in Paris, France in June. Shar­ing the art­work on In­sta­gram, he cap­tioned the post: "New song in­spired by @louisvuit­ton @mrkimjones new col­lec­tion Drake x LV premieres tmrw pro­duced by @ovo40 (sic)" Af­ter 'Views', Drake re­leased the mix­tape 'More Life'. The com­pi­la­tion of songs broke stream­ing records on both Ap­ple Mu­sic and Spo­tify. Within the first 24 hours of be­ing re­leased the project, gar­nered a whop­ping 89.9 mil­lion streams glob­ally on Ap­ple Mu­sic, hand­ing him a new world record for streams in a 24-hour pe­riod. On Spo­tify, the first full day of re­lease for 'More Life' saw it rake in the best first-day streams for any al­bum on the ser­vice. The record gained was 61.3 mil­lion global streams, smash­ing the pre­vi­ous record of 56.7 mil­lion, held by Ed Sheeran's re­cently re­leased 'Di­vide'. If that wasn't enough, the 'Pas­sion­fruit' hit­maker also beat Ed's pre­vi­ously held record of the most streamed artist in a sin­gle day on Spo­tify. Drake man­aged to gain an im­pres­sive 76.4 mil­lion streams across all his avail­able mu­sic on March 19, beat­ing the 'Shape of You' singer's record of 68.7 mil­lion, which he picked up on March 3.
