Led by single 'Over', the Canadian rapper's debut album reportedly is slated to be released on May 25.
Drake's forthcoming first studio album "Thank Me Later" has got a release date. The long-delayed effort is slated to be made available for purchase across the United States on May 25, according to Rap-Up.
Kanye West, Jay-Z and The-Dream are some of the acclaimed music makers tagged to help Drake work on the record. The Canadian rapper once told MTV, "This record sums up where I am right now in my career. I think it's a great first impression. The album is going to be a great body of work for you to get lost in."
The first single from the album is called "Over" and produced by Boi-1da. Its music video is directed by Anthony Mandler who recently shared the concept, "We talked colors, we talked epic, emotion-evoking visuals. The story is actually interesting. The song is so aggressive, and it's sort of a love story in the video. It has a lot to do with the album."
Next month, Drake will start going on an eco-friendly tour with K-OS and Francis & The Lights as his supporting acts. Dubbed "The Away From Home", the gig will be kicked off on April 6 at Eastern Illinois University and wrapped on May 8 in Plymouth.
