Drake Drops ‘8am In Charlotte’: Look + Listen

Drake has released a new single, “8 AM in Charlotte.” The rapper surprise dropped the song on social media along with a music video for the track, which features his son Adonis. 

The video opens with Adonis showcasing a piece of his artwork, which he explains to Drake, who replies, “It’s almost like a little story.” The drawing includes a goat with “Daddy” written alongside it, leading Drake to ask if that’s him. “It’s Daddy Goat,” Adonis replies. “That makes perfect sense to me,” Drake says. 

“8 AM in Charlotte” will presumably appear on Drake’s forthcoming LP, For All the Dogs, expected out Oct. 6. The album was originally set for release on Sept. 22, but the rapper announced he was pushing it back to focus on his tour. 

“Okay my dilemma I am faced with is either cancel shows to finish the album or I complete the mission and drop the album before the last show,” Drake wrote in his message to fans. “I owe you all these memories we are building and anywhere we have missed to-date we will be spinning back for sure. For All the Dogs October 6th. It’s only right…” 

Drake’s tour is currently scheduled to conclude Oct. 9. The Oct. 6 release will coincide with the first of the rapper’s two hometown concerts in Toronto. Drake previously shared the album’s SZA-featuring single “Slime You Out,” the pair’s first collab to date. 

The new album follows Her Loss, a collaborative LP between Drake and 21 Savage, as well as the rapper’s own Certified Lover Boy and Honestly, Nevermind.
