The Confirmation

In April 2019, Future went online with footage of himself alongside Drizzy and appeared to confirmed a much-needed follow-up album. Despite the teaser, they never officially put out a sequel.

Weeks prior, buzz developed about Drake and Future low-key piecing together a new album.

For those of you remember, Future was rumored to drop HNDRXX 2 as a surprise release; but scrapped it last second to not affect with the release of Gunnaโ€™s Drip or Drown 2 project. Well according to those same sources, Future and Drake have already completed a sequel to 2015โ€™s What a Time to be Alive. The effort is said to be entirely new music and is not leftovers from their recording sessions over the last few years. Itโ€™s unclear when the two found time to lock in some studio time together; but weโ€™re assuming Drake may be the deciding factor if it comes out or not. (OnSmash)
