The album that will very likely break the all-time streaming record has a release date.

Drake’s “Scorpion,” that album, will be officially released on June 29.

Drake confirmed the news very early Thursday morning.

Barring a restrictive release strategy, “Scorpion” should break the opening week streaming record. Post Malone’s “Beerbongs & Bentleys,” the current record-holder, generated over 431 million on-demand streams during its first week of release.

In addition to announcing the album’s release date, the immensely popular Drake premiered the music video for his recently released song “I’m Upset.”

The video reunites cast members from “Degrassi,” the show via which Drake first rose to fame. It is available to view below.
