On October 6, Drake dropped his new album “For All the Dogs.” This is Drake’s eighth studio album and was released through OVO Sound and Republic Records, mixing genres of music combining drill and R&B. 

The album contains 23 songs, featuring guest appearances from Teezo, Touchdown, 21 Savage, J. Cole, Yeat, SZA, PartyNextDoor, Chief Keef, Bad Bunny, Sexyy Red and Lil Yachty. 

“My favorite song is ‘Rich Baby Daddy’ because it is SZA and Sexyy Red. I also liked ‘IDGAF,’ but Drake got carried. Yeat is the best,” junior Christian Lang said.

Before the album was released, two singles were dropped: “Slime You Out” and “8am in Charlotte.” Along with the singles, the album cover was released, featuring a drawing by Drake’s son, Adonis. The album is inspired by relationship drama as well as subliminal stabs at other rappers in an attempt to show off wealth. 

The album was originally scheduled to be released September 22, but due to Drake’s tour schedule, the release was delayed. The delay built anticipation, gaining more attention for the album. 

“It was mid. SZA was top tier but everything else was boring, so I’d give it two out of five stars,” junior Cam’ren Warren said, “I liked ‘Slime You Out’ because SZA is in it, but that’s it.”

“The album was great, it is a musical masterpiece,” freshman Coleman Wever said, “My favorite song is ‘IDGAF’ because I feel like the flow is great. I would give the album seven out of five stars because Drake is just a goat.”

“I liked the album. It was pretty good, but Drake got carried. Overall I give the album a four and a half out of five stars,” Lang said. 

Overall, the reviews of the album are divided. The album has an average of 2.8 stars with majority of the reviews being one star and second most at five stars. 

Despite mixed reviews, the album became Drake’s thirteenth number one album on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and “For All the Dogswas at the top. The album earned the largest streaming week of 2023 in the U.S., with over half a billion streams.
