Mar 05, 2021, 01:47am EST — Drake ‘Scary Hours 2’ album, is the surprise OVO Sound sequel to his classic 2018 original effort. Just announced less than 24 hours ago, The Boy and 40 confirmed plans of releasing an official prequel to their upcoming Certified Lover Boy album.
Much like the Scorpion rollout in 2018, which featured the original Scary Hours, part two arrives with new content. It’s three songs and includes guest spots from Rick Ross and Lil Baby. Listen to the new songs “What’s Next,” “Wants and Needs,” and “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” below.
Scary Hours 2 is the sequel to his Scary Hours song pack, which dropped in January of 2018. That bundle featured the tracks “God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity,” the former of which also appeared on his Scorpion album and turned into the biggest single of Drizzy’s career.
The rapper was originally slated to drop his sixth studio album Certified Lover Boy in January 2021 before delaying the release date. “I was planning to release my album this month but between surgery and rehab my energy has been dedicated to recovery,” Drake wrote in an Instagram story in January. “I’m blessed to be back on my feet feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t dropping in January. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in 2021.”
Back in August, Drake first teased Certified Lover Boy — his first proper studio effort since 2018’s Scorpion — with the release of “Laugh Now Cry Later,” featuring Lil Durk. Since releasing Scorpion, Drake has also dropped two rarities compilations: Care Package, which collected material released between 2010 and 2016, and Dark Lane Demo Tapes, which arrived in May 2020 and included more recent leaks and one-off records, such as his TikTok-friendly single “Toosie Slide.”
