In a surprising move that has left his fans in anticipation, global hip-hop sensation Drake has declared an indefinite hiatus from music to give priority to his health and personal life. This announcement came shortly after the release of his 23-track album, "For The Dogs." During a recent episode of "Table For One," his exclusive SiriusXM show, the Grammy-winning artist delved into the reasons behind this decision.

"For years, I've grappled with relentless stomach issues," Drake candidly shared. "It's imperative for me now to turn my attention to my health, to really get to the root of these issues."

Drake Prioritizes Fatherhood

Beyond his personal health, the "In My Feelings" rapper expressed his deep-seated desire to devote time to his loved ones, particularly his young son, Adonis.

Co-parenting with renowned French artist Sophie Brussaux, Drake showcased a proud father moment when Adonis was both featured in "For The Dogs" and became the creative genius behind the album cover art. He further noted, "I have commitments and promises made to some special people in my life, and it's high time I fulfill them." Indicating his studio sessions will be put on pause, Drake mentioned, "I'll be locking up the studio doors for quite some time." While the timeframe remains uncertain, he hinted it might span "maybe a year...

perhaps even more." Highlighting this significant juncture, the 36-year-old rapper shared a poignant snippet from his radio show on Instagram, captioning it, "See ya when I see ya." Fans will still have a chance to see Drake live this weekend in Toronto, a part of his 'It's All A Blur' tour.

However, uncertainty looms over the subsequent shows in Ohio, Louisiana, and Tennessee, with no confirmed dates mentioned on his official site as of now.
