The 'Take Care' rapper will starting writing and recording the follow-up to his 2011 sophomore release.
Drake has revealed that he will head back into the recording studio in June to start working on his next record.
The 'Moment 4 Life' rapper released his sophomore album 'Take Care' in 2011, and is set to begin writing and recording the follow-up after wrapping the current leg of his 'Club Paradise' tour in Boston on 17th June.
"I'm really excited to start working on new music. I start like June 18," Drake revealed to MTV News this week. "I got a studio bus out here so me and 40 started working on a couple joints the other night. Just getting warmed up."
Drake previously explained that his next record will be a more optimistic offering than 'Take Care' and says he is in a "very different' place than he was while writing and recording the record.
The 'Make Me Proud' rapper will also feature alongside Rick Ross and Lil Wayne on rapper French Montana's brand new single 'Pop That'.
Drake recently collaborated on a track with Justin Bieber called 'Right Here', which features on the tracklisting for the 18 year-old pop singer's new album 'Believe'.
