Drake has released the cover art for his latest album, created by his 5-year-old son, Adonis Graham. “FOR ALL THE DOGS,” Drake, 36, captioned a post on Instagram on Monday. “Cover by Adonis,” the Toronto-born talent added.
The Certified Lover Boy artist included his son’s illustration, which depicted a four-legged creature with two ears that appeared to be a canine. The animal’s body was white and featured red eyes. It stood in front of a black background.
Adonis has been spending the summer with his father and has made several recent appearances including at a show and on social media as of late. On Aug. 12, Drake’s firstborn attended his first concert when the “God’s Plan” rapper had a tour stop in Los Angeles.
Fans at his Kia Forum show were in for a surprise when the Grammy-winning artist hit the stage with a little disclaimer. “Y’all keep your bras on,” Drake asked of the audience members for the night’s festivities, before revealing why he had the special request. “Look, to be honest with you, I can’t talk about titties tonight in L.A. because my son is at the show for the first time,” Drizzy said in a fan-filmed video.
Drake continued, “So we’ve got to keep this real PG tonight. Y’all keep your bras on. Throw them up here another night.” The crowd roared in excitement once they learned Adonis was present.
The “Hotline Bling” hitmaker sang a different tune in early July when he suggested that bras on stage would make him feel as though he exceeded his fans’ expectations.
“I would just like to say before I go onto this next song, this is the first stage where I don’t have no bras, and I’m deeply disappointed,” Drake joked in another clip captured by his fans during a concert in Montreal. He also warned that no one “starts throwing shoes and phones and s—.”
A few days after Adonis attended the Kia Forum performance, Drake shared footage of his son jamming out to his song “Rich Flex” with 21 Savage. In the clip, the “Search & Rescue” rapper showed off his son’s artistic side.
“Dear Dad, I hope you have a great concert,” Adonis wrote on a sheet of paper along with a photo that he drew before handing it to his father. Next, he gave a concert of his own, hopping on a sofa, reciting the lyrics, “21, can ya do somethin’ for me?”
The previous week, Drake shared a sweet snap of the two having some father-son time as the “Money In The Grave” artist sat braiding Adonis’ hair in the same style as his. Fellow rapper Lil Yachty saw it as the perfect opportunity to have a bit of fun with his friend.
“It’s no way [you’re] sitting here acting like [you’re] braiding his hair for the internet,” the “Oprah’s Bank Account” collaborator, 25, jokingly wrote on the post.
Adonis was born to Drake and French artist Sophie Brussaux on Oct. 11, 2017. The 5-year-old, who can often be spotted courtside at basketball games with his father, is bilingual, speaking both English and French.
Drake teased FOR ALL THE DOGS’ title in late July during a performance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, saying it would drop in approximately “a couple of weeks,” The Associated Press reported at the time.
