Some artists spend months teasing their new albums, but Drake knows that his fans will tune in even if he drops some new music out of nowhere. That’s exactly what he decided to do with his latest album Honestly, Nevermind, which hit the shelves this Friday, only a day after he announced its release.

Honestly, Nevermind was released on June 17, less than a year after Drake’s previous studio album Certified Lover Boy. Its release was a huge shocker because the Canadian rapper announced it only a day before it hit the shelves and debuted a few tracks on Sirius XM.

Honestly, Nevermind features a total of 14 songs, and the track listing on Apple Music was accompanied by a lengthy message that starts with, “I let my humbleness turn to numbness at times letting time go by knowing I got the endurance to catch it another time. I work with every breath in my body cause it’s the work not air that makes me feel alive.”

Shortly after dropping the album, Drake managed to create even more buzz with the music video for the lead single “Falling Back”. It shows him getting married to 23 different women, with Tristan Thompson making a cameo as his best man.
