Drake announces break from music

Drake’s announcement about his break from music on his radio show ‘Table for One’ on SiriusXM’s Sound 42. He did not reveal how long his hiatus from the industry is going to be, as he said he probably won’t make music for a little bit.

The 36-year-old Canadian rapper said he needs to focus on his health. Drake did not reveal any specifics about his health issue. However, he said the issues he is facing aren’t ‘crazy’ and they are related to his stomach.

The Hotline Bling singer had been suffering from stomach issues for years and his break from music is essential to get his health in order. This shows how even high-profile celebrities like Drake have to take a step back to re-evaluate their health. 

The rapper’s break might extend to a year or longer as he said he’s locking the door on the studio for a while. Regardless, fans have wished well for his health and speedy recovery.

Drake is now one of the most successful solo male artists in terms of chart-topping hits, tying him for fifth all-time. On the radio show where he announced his break from music, Drake also released the music video for 8 AM in Charlotte.

The song is his sixth entry in his AM 2 PM series and opens with artwork from his young son, Adonis. The album has 23 songs with collaborations from artists like Bad Bunny, SZA , J. Cole, Lil Yachty and 21 Savage.

Song lyrics from Drake’s For All The Dogs album led to a lot of buzz on social media. It supposedly involved individuals like Metro Boomin, YoungBoy NBA, Charlamagne Tha God, Kanye West, Millie Bobby Brown, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky

Other artists who took medical breaks

While Drake sets a good example among other artists to take a break from music and prioritize his health, he surely isn’t the first to do it this year. Pop icon Madonna was hospitalized earlier this year for a bacterial infection due to which she postponed her tour by three months.

Another veteran figure in rock music, Bruce Springsteen, pushed his September tour dates owing to a peptic ulcer. However, Drake isn’t anywhere nearly as old as Madonna or Springsteen.

A closer example would be Justin Bieber whose career came to a halt following his diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt syndrome which left part of his face paralyzed. These clearly show how even the biggest stars are not immune to health problems and require adequate breaks from music.
