Those who keep their eyes on the fashion world may have caught an exciting musical development before the rest of the world. A new Drake track entitled "Signs" was played at the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2018 fashion show on Thursday (June 22) in Paris.
Earlier in the day, Louis Vuitton's style director Kim Jones announced that they would be playing new Drake during the show, which took place during the prestigious Paris Fashion Week. The song can be heard at the 5 minute 55 second mark in the recording of the show.
Earlier this spring, Drake stirred up suspicion that new music might be in the works when he released a photo taken inside the studio of his producer Noah "40" Shebib. Now that "Signs" has dropped, the image makes more sense—especially the caption "champagne" (the track contains the lyric "champagne with purpose while I'm yawning").
The Canadian rapper last released a studio album in 2016, his fourth feature-length album Views. On "Signs," Drake sticks to his typical relaxed R&B-tinged vibes, as well as dropping nods to fellow musicians Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and his friend, the supermodel Winnie Harlow. Whether "Signs" is just a one-off Drake song or a sign of a new album to come has yet to be seen.
