The 6 God is back in the studio!
Drake’s “Scorpion” was released nearly a year ago, and we’ve all been wondering he’d hit us off with some new new. Well, wonder no longer! During his tour Assignation Vacation Tour stop in London, Tuesday night, Drake made a special announcement:
“This is one of my favorite places to be in the world. So I think that what I’ma do - I kinda actually started last night to be honest with you. But I think what I’ma do after this, is I’ma go home and I’ma make a new album so I can come back to London next year and we can do this again.”
As you can imagine, the crowd went ballistic. New Drake music? Who wouldn’t want that, fan or not. In addition to his new solo album, Drake is apparently cooking up with Future, once again, for “What a Time to Be Alive 2.” So in honor of all this new music we can expect, we take a look at some of the 6 God's coldest pieces.
GQ Magazine made a bold claim in an article they released last Spring that stated Drake has (one of) the best jewelry collections in the world. They highlighted, in particular, Drake’s staple OVO owl necklace that’s custom-made by renowned jeweler, Ben Baller. The gold chain is covered in 40 carats of ice-blue, canary-yellow, and white VVS diamonds.
Drake may have been inspired by our 14K Gold CZ Great Horned Owl Necklace - which makes quite a statement with its AAA handset stones and 2.5mm 26” Franco chain.
Drake is a proud Scorpio, who even named one of his albums, “Scorpion.” So it was only right that jewelry designer, Jason Arasheben, crafted this circular pendant laden with seven carat diamonds and a gold scorpion - which is placed in the center as the other zodiac signs circle around it.
When it comes to his wrist game, Drake has been loyal to one “team” since raking in millions throughout his career. The Rolex brand is his obvious favorite, as he’s seen quite often with one, or two, 18 carat gold time pieces. A photo from his Instagram page read “Time heals all” in one of captions, as he showed off a few time pieces.
Looking to let time pass so you, too, can heal from your personal ailments? King Ice provides a classical look with the LX Watch studded with AAA, handset stones, plated in real 14K gold with a solid stainless steel chain.
Following the trend, Drake also hearts his Cartier “Love” bracelet, which has been seen on many celebrities including Kylie Jenner and Kanye West. Apparently he owns three of these diamond-encrusted bracelets - because one just isn’t enough.
I done walked in here
Lookin' like the mothaf*ckin' man of the year
My shades so dark
And my ICE so bright
