Drake Premieres New Song, Album Date Moved to June

Fans will have to thank Drake three weeks later than expected. The Young Money rapper’s highly anticipated debut album Thank Me Later will now be hitting shelves on June 15 as opposed to May 25, according to MTV.

Drake revealed the news last night before he kicked off his Away From Home tour at Pennsylvania’s Slippery Rock University. While the LP will not be available for two more month, fans at the show got to hear one of the new songs Drizzy’s been working on. The Toronto-bred MC premiered the laid back, introspective cut “Fireworks.” He starts the song off by saying, “Money just changed everything/ I wonder how life without it would go.” [Watch below]

“Fireworks” is just the latest song to come out from TML. Drake released the album’s official single “Over” in the beginning of March and his collaboration with The-Dream “Shut it Down” followed a short time after.

Along with Dream, Thank Me Later, is expected to feature appearances by Jay-Z and Kanye West, among others.

In related news Drake and fellow Young Money member Nicki Minaj will be appearing in the May issue of XXL. The magazine hits stands nationwide on April 20. —Elan Mancini
