Fan Opinions On Drake’s New Album,
“Honestly, Nevermind”

Although Drake’s New Album, “Honestly, Nevermind” was highly anticipated and talked
about, after its release it got hit with a wave of negative backlash. For most of his
musical career, Drake has been known to try out different genres of music and add his
own ‘flavor’ to them. Most of the time it has worked out, but it seems like this time fan’s
aren’t having it. The 14-track album presents a new sound for the rapper, who decided
to tap into the house music genre…and fan’s aren’t loving it.

Some fans say that the album shows off a new side to Drake, and they believe that it
adds to the collection of critically acclaimed past albums. On the other hand, many fans
were disappointed to hear this new sound, and have criticized the album thoroughly.

“I get trying to be innovative, and I appreciate when artists switch up their sound and try
something new, but that is precisely the problem,” Ammal Hassan of Esquire magazine
said in an article. “This doesn’t feel like innovation. Instead, it feels like Drake is
attempting to tap into a cultural sphere, a genre that already exists and where people
are doing great in it.”

After receiving all this backlash, Drake went onto instagram to respond to the criticism
his new album has received.

“It’s all good if you don’t get it yet. It’s all good,” Drake says in the clip, speaking over
the background music playing the track “Calling My Name” off Honestly, Nevermind.
“That’s what we do. We wait for you to catch up. We’re in here, though. We’re caught up
already. On to the next. My goodness.”

Despite all the negative backlash, according to apple music, ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ has
already become the biggest dance album in Apple Music History.

So, what are your opinions over Drake’s new album? Do you love it, or hate it?
