Drake took to Instagram to reveal that he’s dropping a second Scary Hours EP on March 5 at midnight, which follows the original Scary Hours dropped in 2018. The original project featured two tracks, “God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity.”
While many are awaiting the release of his upcoming album Certified Lover Boy, which was initially set to release in January 2021, fans will have to be satisfied with the Scary Hours release for now. DJ Akademiks stated in a Twitch stream on Feb. 25 that he spoke to Drake about his upcoming album, and he revealed, “Drake told me that it’s gonna be dropping before April. So he’s not waiting until summer to drop his sh*t … April, or before.”

He’s working overtime creating this next masterpiece… CLB on da way… fr. He also told me he shooting some videos.. prollly drop something this week. The Goat is back. Aubrey Champagne Papi Drake Graham. Thats yall Drake update.. the source is – The Boy.” Akademiks’ message turned out to be true, as Drake was spotted shooting a video in Toronto.
