After a two-week delay, Drake’s long awaited eighth studio album For All the Dogs dropped on Friday October 6. Consisting of a 23 song tracklist and clocking in at 84 minutes, the new album is much longer than many of his contemporaries’ albums.
For All The Dogs released to moderate reviews, achieving a 78% on Google User Reviews and a 51% Critic Score on Album of the Year.
The album features a wide array of styles, such as drill, underworld, and R&B. “It had some songs that were like old Drake, but also some new styles of music he’s trying to touch into,” said Gabe Mumford, Junior.
Drake featured a myriad of different artists on the album: Teezo Touchdown, 21 Savage, J. Cole, Yeat, SZA, PartyNextDoor, Chief Keef, Bad Bunny, Sexyy Red.
“I have to give credit to Conductor Williams and Lil Yachty for helping produce this masterpiece,” said Nathan Peters, Drake fan.
The album’s themes of relationship drama and heartbreak have touched many fans. “Drake has deeply impacted me by this album drop,” said Peters. “Many of these songs have a lot of great wisdom for the future generation.”
Despite moderate reviews, Drake’s new album has been a success on the Billboard Top 100, with the album holding 7 of the top 10 spots on the list.
