“FOR ALL THE DOGS SEPTEMBER 22,” Drake captioned a video. The clip included a vintage set from Drake’s father, Dennis Graham, performing live from Memphis, Tennessee. 

The news comes a day after Drake hinted at the album release date in the form of colorful hair clips. On Tuesday night (September 5), Drake performed in Glendale, Arizona, as part of his and 21 Savage’s It’s All A Blur Tour. Following his set, Drake shared a photo to his Instagram story that showed him donning hair clips that read “9,” “2” and “2.”

While details of the album and its release date have been scarce in the past few months, Nicki Minaj confirmed that she will make a guest appearance on the project. She also has been eager for the LP to drop. During an Instagram live, Minaj urged the rapper to release the album.

“Drake, I’m not going to tell you one more time,” she said. “The Barbz want the album! He can be Champagne Papi… I don’t care, papi, the Barbz want the motherfucking album.”

Bad Bunny is also set to appear on the project. Drake revealed the news during an appearance in Los Angeles on the It’s All A Blur Tour. At the L.A. date, Drake brought Bad Bunny to the stage during his performance.

“I wanna tell y’all something because y’all are L.A. and we love you,” Drake said at the time. “It’s been like six years since me and Benito did a song, so we got a song coming for y’all on my album and it’s real.”
