The mixtape also features the already released singles ‘Toosie Slide’, ‘When To Say When’ and ‘Chicago Freestyle’.

After several reports of leaks and rumours surrounding the project, Drake confirmed the mixtape on Instagram earlier today (May 1).

“My brothers @oliverelkhatib @ovonoel put together alot of the songs people have been asking for (some leaks and some joints from SoundCloud and some new vibes),” Drake wrote in a caption.

“DARK LANE DEMO TAPES out everywhere at midnight…”



Drake also confirmed that his sixth studio album, the follow up to 2018’s ‘Scorpion’ which featured hits ‘God’s Plan’, ‘Nice For What’ and ‘In My Feelings’, will be dropping at some point in the summer of this year.

This will be Drake’s first mixtape since 2017’s ‘More Life’, which spawned songs like ‘Fake Love’ and ‘Passionfruit’.

Drake’s latest hit ‘Toosie Slide’ spawned its own TikTok dance, which a group of Ugandan children performed and went viral. Drake shared the viral clip on his Instagram, and spawned a flood of donations for the The Masaka Kids charity – around $30,000.
