    People Reallllly Didn't Like Drake's New Album "Honestly, Nevermind" And Now He's Responded To The Hate

    "My goodness!"

    This week, Drake surprise-dropped his seventh album Honestly, Nevermind.

    The album marked a big departure from Drake's normal sound — for starters, the new LP is house music; whereas, Drake's other records are rap with R&B elements.

    Music critics had mixed responses. For example, Variety wrote, "As a standalone Drake album, it’s deeply refreshing, and a dose of vibrant pop likely to reverberate through the remainder of the summer."

    However, another outlet, Consequence of Sound, wrote, "Honestly, Nevermind isn’t a bad album, but it is disappointing."

    When the album dropped on Twitter, fans echoed the same — if not worse — criticism of the album.

    Honestly Nevermind is quite frankly what drake should have done before he decided to release whatever the fuck this album is.

    Well, during his album release party, Drake addressed the criticism. "It’s all good if you don’t get it yet," he said in a @itsrikip_'s reel, as the new track "Calling My Name" played.

    I mean, he has a point. There have been countless times I know I've listened to an album and initially hated it, but then eventually grew to love it. So, here's hoping that happens for y'all! Bye!
