Before the end of the (at-home) workday, rumors began circulating that none other than Drake, the biggest artist in the world, was preparing to drop a surprise mixtape. A tracklist was floating around with names like Chris Brown, Fivio Foreign, Playboi Carti, and more attached to the project. Still, we needed to wait for official confirmation of the tape. It didn’t take long for Drake to reveal that the Dark Lane Demo Tapes was a real thing, coming through at midnight with a collection of new music.

Packed with fourteen previously-unreleased songs that were either highly-anticipated (like “Pain 1993” with Playboi Carti) or genuinely unknown to the public, Drake has officially released his latest project. As you would expect, the internet went absolutely bonkers with the news that he was dropping and, when the mixtape was uploaded to streaming services, things blew up even larger.

As people sift through the lyrics to find that perfect Instagram caption, all of Drake’s OVO followers will be freaking out for the next little while. Without an outlet in the real world, social media will have to do for now.

What do you think of Drake’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes? Let us know in the comments.
