According to TSN announcers, Drake's next album will be shorter than Scorpion.

While sitting courtside at the Toronto Raptors-Phoenix Suns game on Friday (February 22), the Spotify most streamed artist of the decade revealed he’s keeping his sixth studio effort much shorter than the bloated, two-part Scorpion project that arrived in 2018.

“I’ve been doing this for like 10 plus years as well … sometimes you need to set a target goal for yourself just to keep it interesting,” he said. “Last album, I went high volume. I did two sides. It was like 20-something songs, which is a lot of songs. This album I’ll probably make it more of a realistic offering. Something more concise. It could be 10, 11 songs – 16.”

The 6 God added, “I also do a lot of different types of music, so it’s tough to make it like a seven song album” but whatever he’s doing, he’s “having a lot of fun” doing it.

He dropped Scorpion in June 2018, not long after Pusha T delivered his scathing diss track, “The Story Of Adidon.” The project boasted an attention span-testing 25 songs and included the singles “Nice For What” and “God’s Plan.”

It broke Spotify’s one-day global record with 132.45 million streams as well as Apple Music’s single-day record with 170 million streams, breaking Drake’s own record set with More Life.

It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with roughly 732,000 album-equivalent units sold in its first week upon its release.
