Canadian rapper Drake has announced a temporary break from his music career, revealing that he needs to prioritize his health, specifically addressing recurring stomach issues. The announcement came just hours after he dropped his latest album, “For All The Dogs.”
Drake opened up about his decision on his SiriusXM radio program Table For One, saying, “I probably won’t make music for a little while. I need to focus on my health first and foremost… I need to get right.” He then went on to describe the persistent stomach issues that have bothered him for years.
With collaborations with well-known musicians like Bad Bunny, J. Cole, SZA, Lil Yachty, and even a sample from Frank Ocean, the 36-year-old Grammy Award-winning artist created a lot of anticipation for his most recent studio album, “For All The Dogs.” Adonis, Drake’s five-year-old son, also rapped on the track “Daylight” and appeared in the music video for the new single “8 AM in Charlotte” in addition to contributing to the album’s artwork.
Unfortunately, as noted on his website and Ticketmaster, Drake’s hiatus has resulted in the cancellation or postponement of a number of upcoming concerts across the United States. Drake insists that he will still keep his end of a number of other unstated promises, saying, “I got some other things I need to do for some other people that I made promises.”
The rapper said, “I’m gonna lock the door in the studio for a little bit… I don’t even know what a little bit is. Maybe a year or so, maybe a little longer.” Fans will undoubtedly be eagerly awaiting his return because they are aware of the importance of his health and well-being.
