No more cryptic teases in Swedish. It seems we finally have an official release date for Drake's new music, thanks to video posted to Instagram on Saturday.
The clip takes fans through Drake's life on the road as he descends a private jet, skirts the paparazzi, and parties in a club. The video ends with a title card for More Life and the date March 18. The rapper previously posted and then deleted a message in Swedish to social media with a note about March 4. That date came and went, which was probably why the post was deleted in the first place.
