Jun 22, 2013 04:12 PM EDT
The Canadian rapper tweeted links to four songs: "The Motion" featuring Sampha, "Jodeci Freestyle" with J. Cole, "Over Here" by PartyNextDoor and "Versace" by Migos. The last two are songs he guest raps on.
This will be the third rapper for the 26-year-old following his 2011 release of "Take Care."
In a recent interview with GQ Magazine Drake spoke about his new album, refraining from sex to concentrate of his craft and his beef with Chris Brown.
"You know the way fighters don't f-k before the fight? Sometime I feel like I'm so focused on training my body and getting my mind right to create this album that sex isn't one of my main priorities," he said adding that he doesn't plan on staying celibate for long. "If someone is around that I know and trust, I'm down. But I'm not going to end with some stranger at this party."
He went on to say that he hopes this summer is different from last summer when he was making headlines because of a nasty club fight between him and singer Chris Brown. Drake didn't mention what the feud was about but it was speculated that it had something to do with Rihanna.
"It's embarrassing, the amount of media coverage," he said in GQ. "Two rappers fighting over the woman. He's not even a rapper, but still, it's the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music."
When asked about his new album he said he is definitely going to make it his moment.
"This is my fucking moment to say if I wanted to rap all the time, really rap, I would, but also I love to make music. I'll do this for you right now. But it's for me, too. It's my story... I'm trying to get back to that kid in the basement. To say what he has to say. And I'm trying to make it last. I ain't gonna lie: I want to be the one you listen to all summer."
