Drake Shares Executive Producers of His ‘Scorpion’ Album
Aside from a release date, not much is known about Drake's upcoming album, Scorpion, but on Tuesday (April 17), the "Nice for What" rapper did reveal who is executive producing the record.
Drizzy hopped on Instagram to post a photo of producer Noah "40" Shebib wearing a jacket that reveals he and Oliver El-Khatib will serve as executive producers on Scorpion. The jacket worn by 40 appears to be the same jacket Drake wore to announce the album.
40's relationship with Drake has been well documented, having worked on every Drizzy project since 2009's So Far Gone and serving as executive producer on Take Care, Nothing Was the Same, What a Time to Be Alive, Views and More Life.
As for El-Khatib, the rapper's manager may not be a household name but he has also had a hand in some of Drake's biggest projects. Like 40, El-Khatib was one of the executive producers on More Life and has also been with the rapper since the early days of OVO, helping launch the label and even serving as a designated blogger.
While a tracklist for Scorpion has yet to be revealed, Drake currently has the No. 1 and No. 2 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart thanks to "Nice for What" and "God's Plan." The latter track became the rapper's longest leading Billboard Hot 100 hit with 11 weeks at the top spot but was recently dethroned by "Nice for What."
