Auckland, New Zealand

Drake’s been relatively quiet on the music front since his More Life playlist was released in March. But Drizzy fans don’t need to worry about a long absence because he’s assured them he’s staying busy in the studio.

The news came from an announcement between songs at Drake’s show in Auckland, New Zealand, a stop on his Boy Meets World Tour. He prefaced the announcement with a brief story of an encounter with someone at an airport who asked him when he’d be releasing new music. Turning to the crowd, Drizzy let loose a wide grin before letting them know the answer.

“I’m always working for you,” he said. “I’m never sitting around, wasting my time. I’ve got shit coming for you, don’t worry.”

The crowd erupted into cheers shortly afterward.

In August at OVO Fest, Drake revealed to fans that he has begun to work on his next album. With his latest concert announcement, it looks like the world will be hearing Drizzy’s latest sooner than later.

In September, he sent Instagram into a frenzy with two pictures of studio equipment, hinting at plans to release new music. This summer, he also sparked speculation with a picture remarkably similar to the cover of his critically acclaimed Take Care, suggesting a possible sequel.
