Drake: For All The Dogs Review

Drake: For All The Dogs Review

Rapper and R&B artist, Drake, released his newest album For All The Dogs on October 6th, bringing in a variety of artists and songs.

As one of Drake’s biggest fans, I have been looking forward to this album release for quite a while. As there have been back and forth predictions of whether or not the “old Drake” would be portrayed on the album, I personally see the 2023 version of Drake being well represented.

With this album following the release of other rap albums such as, Utopia by Travis Scott, Pink Tape by Lil Uzi Vert, Love Sick by Don Toliver, and SET IF OFF by Offset–Drake’s album ties in perfectly what the year of 2023 rap has looked liked.

I am personally a little disappointed in this newest album. Though that can be controversial, I thought it would incorporate similar R&B sounds from his past albums, such as Take Care which was released back in 2011, Views released in 2016, More Life released in 2017, and my personal favorite Her Loss which was released last year in 2022. Each of these albums have some of the best beats Drake has come out with in his career, and I was just hoping he would take a step back and not give into the poppy 2023 sound. Even though this album isn’t my favorite, it doesn’t mean I haven’t enjoyed listening to it! It is notoriously known that Drake’s music can grow on you over time. My current favorite tracks on the album are “Virginia Beach,” “Calling For You” (feat. 21 Savage,) “Fear Of Heights,” “7969 Santa,” “Drew A Picasso,” and “Polar Opposites.”

Another personal favorite is the song “Daylight,” featuring Drakes’ son Adonis. Drake had his son rap on his album to tie in the fact that he is involved in his son’s life. With Drake also letting his son draw the cover for the album, we get to see this new side of Drake, who is letting his fans get a peek into his personal life.

Not only did his son feature on the album, with the drop containing 23 songs, it was bound for some star-studded artists to make an appearance.

Even though the album is a little on the longer side, Drake is one of the only artists I personally believe that can drop this many songs at a time. Because of the long anticipation for new Drake music, fans will eat up any song being released.

Rumors are flying that Drake will be taking a break from the studio after his latest “It’s All A Blur Tour,” and the drop of the album. Hopefully, we can look forward to hearing more from him in the future. But for now, enjoy Drake’s latest album and continue to look out for more features and releases.
