Drake drops surprise album on iTunes

Drake was featured on Beyonce’s surprise album – and now he is taking a leaf out of her book.

The Grammy-winning rapper released a new album called If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late on iTunes early today. It includes 17 tracks and features Lil Wayne, Travis Scott and PartyNextDoor.

It comes more than a year after Beyonce released her self-titled album on iTunes without announcing it.

Others have dropped albums in surprise form, from alternative rapper Kid Cudi to Australian rockers Wolfmother and rap group G Unit.

Drake’s last album was 2013’s Nothing Was the Same, his third studio album. It sold more than 650,000 units in its debut week.

Drake’s hits include Started From The Bottom, Take Care and Best I Ever Had.
