While the debate rages on as to who the king of hip-hop is, there’s little denying the success that Drake has seen over the past few years. And this trend looks to continue on Thursday, June 22nd, as the rapper will be releasing a brand new song titled “Signs.”
According to Pitchfork, the announcement was made by Louis Vuitton artistic director Kim Jones on his Instagram account Wednesday, who wrote: “We are very proud to announce that Drake @champagnepapi will be premiering a brand new song inspired by our #louisvuitton #pfwSS18 collection.”
The Instagram post also came with what looks to be the single artwork, complete with a multi-colored flower design and the title “Signs” beneath Drake’s name. Oliver El-Khatib, Drake’s manager and co-founder of OVO Sound, confirmed the song’s release in a separate Instagram post that read: “I had the pleasure to curate music for the show with all new music from @ovosound.”
But what time will “Signs” be released? And where can one stream it?
According to Jones, “Signs” will premiere on louisvuitton.com at 2:30 p.m. Paris time, where it will be available to stream. For those living in the United States, that translates to 8:30 a.m. Eastern time and 5:30 a.m. PST. Once you go to the site, be sure to select your country of residence and then tune into the stream of the Spring-Summer 2018 Show.
You can also stream the pre-recorded show below, where “Signs” can be heard around the six minute mark. It is unclear whether the song will be available for streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, or Drake’s SoundCloud account.
Drizzy is still riding high on the release of his acclaimed playlist More Life, which broke streaming records and earned him a record-setting 13 awards at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. That being said, it seems as though he has no intention of slowing down, as evidenced by a photo of the rapper sitting in the studio of producer Noah “40” Shebib this past May.
It’s impossible to say whether we’re going to hear more Drake records in the near future, but it certainly looks as though the break he alluded to on More Life‘s closing song “Do Not Disturb” was short-lived. Fans on Twitter have offered a variety of responses to the news, from sheer excitement to those who feel that Drizzy should take a break and recharge before releasing new music.
