While the track suggested that the wheels are in motion on Drizzy’s upcoming third album, longtime collaborator Noah “40” Shebib spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about progress on the LP, stating that he’s unsure of how far along they are on the project and that the shape of it depends on their evolving ideas.
“I don’t know, I don’t know. Every day it changes. That’s tough,” he said. “That’s a hard thing to say. It depends. Because you know we work, and we have ideas and we have songs but as we create more songs, the shape of the album will change and the progression of it will change. As much as we might be sure that we’re on a path and we’re… We’re sort of working sequentially right now. We feel like we have 1, 2, 3, you know we’re going 4, 5, 6. That’s how we’re moving forward, in order of the actual playlist of the album. But as we make more music that fits in other places, it will change and adjust as far as how many songs, or how far we’re going to go so it’s yet to be discovered. We’re still too early to make a call about whether or not we’re half done or a quarter done or 75 percent done. I mean, it could be any of the above.”
The YMCMB rapper previously spoke on what he expects to create with his third album, which serves as the follow up to Take Care and Thank Me Later. “[There’s] nothing necessarily for me to step up and say I want to fight for,” he said, “but there is a way for me to give moments to the world, and to bear my emotions and hope that I’m remembered as that guy who was able to bring people together. I want to be that guy. I want to bring people together.”
