Drake took to Instagram today to tease the release of a new album, which appears to be named Scorpion.

Slated for a June 2018 release, the album news was further validated by a tweet from the official OVO Sound account.

In related news, with "Nice For What" set to debut at No. 1 this week on the Billboard Hot 100, Drake will become the first artist to replace himself at No. 1 ("God's Plan") on the chart with two songs that both debuted in the No. 1 position.

"Nice For What" is currently one of three Drake records in the top five, joining the previous number one "God's Plan" and BlocBoy JB's "Look Alive," which is holding firm at No. 5 for a second straight week. 

With this accomplishment, Drake joins The Beatles, 50 Cent, and Justin Bieber as the only artists to have three songs in the Hot 100's top 5 simultaneously, according to Chart Data.

Drake's winning formula for 2018 world domination remains undefeated for a 12th straight week.
