The possibility of Drake releasing a new batch of potential hits — after the back-to-back No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 debuts for his latest singles “Nice for What” and “God’s Plan” — was almost too much for fans to handle. Drake’s project, More Life, came out more than a year ago, in March 2017, and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
The majority of fans were quick to share their excitement over the news.

Some fans also noted the title of the album related to Drake’s astrological sign of Scorpio.

Other fans, though, were quick to point out that the jacket Drake is wearing in the promo is very similar to the one worn by Ryan Gosling in his 2011 film Drive.
Someone, to Drake: you know what is cool? That “Drive” bomber jacket, ya know? The one with scorpion print on the back
