There are no days off for Champagne Papi aka Drizzy aka Aubrey Graham (aka Drake), who has been on a roll recently with his popular singles “God’s Plan” and “Nice For What.” Both songs have been turned into Karena Evans-produced music videos that have become instant summer anthems in their own right.
Yesterday, the busy Canadian rapper took time from his schedule to announce to his Instagram followers that he was in the “home stretch.” Drake’s Instagram post was a casual portrait of himself by his photographer friend Theo Skudra, and was most likely referring to his new album Scorpion which drops at a TBD date sometime in June.
Back in April, Drake had also teased the news of the upcoming album through another Instagram post (can you tell he loves cryptic social media messages?), in which he’s wearing a black satin bomber jacket with the words “Scorpion June Twenty Eighteen by Drake” written on the back.
Reactions to the announcement ranged from excited, to variations of “this is lit ?,” and pleas from fans asking Drake to collaborate with other artists like Eve and Swizz Beats on his upcoming album. There was one resounding question from fans, though: where can we buy one of these Scorpion jackets?
Almost a month later and Drake has yet to share answers about where fans can cop the Scorpion tour jackets. He has, however, posted more Insta-teasers of the bombers—but this time, it’s some of the rapper’s favorite folks that are posing in them. Among them are Netflix’s Stranger Things actress Millie Bobbie Brown who gives a coy over the shoulder glance in her’s, while DJ Khaled holds his up in a photo captioned, “? another one.”
Now more than ever, fans are chomping at the bit to get their hands on one of these jackets.

Here’s hoping October’s Very Own starts stocking the jackets when the tour starts in June.
