A Drake and Kanye West collaborative album isn't actually going to happen, right? Right?

When Kanye made an appearance at Drake's OVO Fest earlier this month, his onstage comments indicated a collaborative album was on the way. A quick diagnosis of his actual remarks, however, led some to believe that the project was more "if," not "when."

Earlier today, the G.O.O.D Music Twitter posted a photo of a billboard in Los Angeles that reads, "Calabasas is the New Abu Dhabi," with both G.O.O.D Music and OVO's respective logos.

No additional information has been provided by either artist or their camps, and the whole thing could turn out to be one giant troll job, but it wouldn't be surprising if a more formal announcement followed this evening at MTV's VMAs program. Kanye isn't scheduled to perform during the show, but the network has reportedly granted him "four minutes to do whatever he wants."

Given that Drake is scheduled to release his new Please Forgive Me short film on September 30, and a collaborative EP with Gucci Mane is already in progress, it's unlikely the pair would release anything before late October.

Calabasas might be the new Abu Dhabi, but is Drake x Kanye the new most-anticipated album of 2016?
