During Saturday’s SiriusXM concert, the rapper teased a new album and a possible summer 2023 tour.

“I thought about a lot of things in life, but right now none of those things stop making music for you,” Drake told the loving crowd. “Hope I can stir up some more emotions for you, maybe this year – maybe I’ll get bored and make another one.”

Drake noted that this was his first show in about five years and later stated, “I’ll be on the road a lot this year.”

Drake released his most recent album in the summer of 2022. “Honely, Nevermind” features house music instead of Drake’s classic hip-hop rap. The album was dedicated to Virgil Ablohthe designer who died in 2021.

“I got here by being realistic. I didn’t get here by being blind. I know what’s what and most importantly what and who’s on my side. Honestly… Never mind,” read a note, written by Drake, on the album.

“DEDICATED TO OUR BROTHER V,” the note concluded.
