Drake performs on stage on Oct. 8, 2016, in Toronto, Canada. 

Drake’s Scorpion will get a physical release on July 13. 

The new album will be available as a 2-CD set from next Friday, two weeks after its global rollout across streaming and download platforms. Drizzy and his reps haven’t confirmed the traditional album release, though Amazon.com is taking preorders for the double-CD, which comes with a $17.98 price tag. 

Scorpion dropped on June 29 via Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records and got away to a sizzling start, particularly on subscription services. The Canadian hip-hop star’s fifth studio album smashed single-day streaming records on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music and set a new one-week streaming standard for an album in the United States, doing so in just three days. It's expected to bow at No. 1 on the U.S. and U.K. albums charts.

There’s no news yet on a vinyl edition of Scorpion
