During Saturday’s SiriusXM concert, the rapper teased a new album and a possible summer 2023 tour.
“I thought about a bunch of things in life, but at this moment in time, none of those things are stopping making music for you,” Drake told the doting crowd. “I hope I can strike up some more emotions for you, maybe this year — I might get bored and make another one.”
Drake noted this was his first show in about five years and later stated, “I’ll be out and about on the road a lot this year.”

Drake released his most recent album in the summer of 2022. “Honestly, Nevermind” features house music rather than Drake’s classic hip-hop rap. The album was dedicated to Virgil Abloh, the designer who passed away in 2021.
“I got here being realistic. I didn’t get here being blind. I know whats what and especially what and who is by my side. Honestly…Nevermind,” a note, written by Drake, on the album said.
“DEDICATED TO OUR BROTHER V,” the note concluded.
