What’s up, guys? Frazier here for Complex News. As it’s looking more and more likely that
Drake will be leaving his longtime label of Cash Money, Variety reports a “well-placed”
source as saying that Drake just might have more music up his sleeve, despite recently
dropping his fifth studio album Scorpion. This rumored music will reportedly drop to
coincide with the official announcement of Drake signing to a new label. Though the piece of info is tantalizing, there
isn’t much in the way of details, like if this “release” will be a full length album,
EP, or just some loosies. Adding fuel to the fire, Drake rapped that
he would be departing his current label situation on the Scorpion track “Is There More,”
saying: “Soon as this album drop I’m out of the
deal.” Speaking of record labels, a judge has allowed
for a lawsuit from Aspire Music Group, the label that initially signed Drake back in
2008, to move forward after a motion to dismiss their lawsuit was filed by Cash Money. Aspire Music Group is claiming it hasn’t
been paid profits from Drake’s albums. Aspire says they signed a deal with Cash Money
and Universal Music Group to receive one-third of the net profits from Drake’s first six
solo albums and a third share in all copyrights. Legal drama aside, Drake’s Scorpion has
been doing extremely well. All 25 tracks have made it to the Billboard
Hot 100 chart and seven of the album’s songs are in the top 10. The album also debuted at the number one spot
on the Billboard 200 and has reached an astronomical one billion streams in its first week. Oh, and the project went platinum the day
it dropped. Wherever Drake ends up record label-wise it’s
pretty safe to say that he’ll be doing just fine in the finance department. That’s the news for now, but for all the
latest news on Drake, subscribe to Complex News on YouTube. For Complex News, I’m Frazier.

-Welcome, welcome, welcome to
“The Tonight Show.” Thank you. This is it, huh?
-Thank you for having me. It’s a nice piece of hardware.
I’m not gonna lie. -Yeah, I guess so. Oh, my gosh. How does it feel? -Oh, man, it feels so good. I made history in Canada. I am truly blessed.
Truly blessed. -Yeah, you’ve made history here. I know you’re from Canada
as well. Let me just run through
some things here. You started the year ranked 152.
Now you rank 5. [ Cheers and applause ] You’re the first — You’re the first teenager
to win a major in over a decade. You’re the first player
born in the 2000s to win a major singles title. [ Cheers and applause ]
-Oh, my gosh. -You’re the first Canadian
to win a major singles title, and this was the first time
you qualified for the U.S. Open in three years,
and you won the whole thing. [ Cheers and applause ] -You’re making me blush. -Walk me through this. Have you — Have you had time
to really just breathe and take it all in and go, “What
is going on with everything? -No, definitely not. Everything has been
pretty hectic ever since. So I never really got the chance
to let everything soak in, but, yeah, last year
has been pretty crazy. I was going through
a really bad back injury, so now being able
to hold this trophy is something really special. And playing against Serena
in the final, I mean, I’ve been dreaming
of this moment for a pretty long time.
-Yeah. -But, yeah, this is
honestly crazy. It’s crazy. -Do you get nervous when you go, “Oh, my gosh, I’m going up
against Serena Williams”? This is legendary. -Yeah, it’s —
it was pretty shocking. I got a sense of how that was
during Toronto in the finals, so I think I was able to control
my emotions a little bit better. I mean, I was really, really
nervous before the match, but when I stepped on the court,
I just stuck to my game plan, and I did
some really good things. -Yeah, yeah, you did.
[ Applause ] I would say so. Does that added pressure make
you want to play harder and go, “Oh, my gosh, don’t —
yeah, stay extra focused”? -Oh, yeah, definitely. There’s always gonna
be pressure, whether it’s the pressure
you put on yourself or the external pressure, but I think, like, what
Billie Jean King says, pressure is a privilege,
so I just try to embrace it as much as I can, and I think I’ve been doing that
really well this year. -And Canada is going crazy
for you. I mean, you’ve heard
from everybody, right? -Yeah, I’ve heard from everyone.
-Who have you heard from? -Shania Twain. -Hello. I mean, that’s it.
-Oh, my gosh. -You can stop right there. I mean, hello. That’s all you need,
but Trudeau. -Justin Trudeau,
John Tory, Steve Nash, The Raptors, The Leafs —
it’s been crazy. I’ve been feeling
all the love from home, and I truly appreciate it. -Is there anyone
you haven’t heard from yet? -Drizzy.
[ Laughter ] Champagnepapi,
I’m waiting for you. [ Laughter ] -Drake, Drake,
if you’re watching. -Don’t at me. Don’t at me. -Yeah. “Don’t at me.”
Oh, my gosh. I got to say,
it’s a pleasure meeting you, but you do
this racket flip thing that I thought was pretty cool. And I was wondering if you could
maybe show me how to do it — -The one that
almost hit the ref? -Yeah.
-[ Laughs ] -By the way, were you like — -That one slipped out
of my hand. I did not mean to, but no one is
getting hurt tonight, I promise. Okay. Let’s do it.
-Well, you never know, right? Now, show me
how you do it first. Alright. Alright, so I can’t do this.
-Can you do that? -No, I can’t do this at all. Is that it? -Okay, so you keep your hand
like that. -Okay, already I’m in trouble. -And you kind of flip it,
but you have to go really fast, so you don’t drop it,
and then you catch the grip. [ Laughter ]
Should I like — -Yeah, yeah, you should
walk away. Yeah, yeah, yeah. [ Cheers and applause ] -Round of applause. -I feel like a pro. Alright, let’s flip our rackets
out to commercial break. Bianca Andreescu, everybody. We’ll be right back
with a performance from Sheryl Crow
and Jason Isbell. Stick around. Here we go.
*plop* *sploosh* Ewahh! OOOOAAHAHAHA AAHAHAHAHA AAHHHAHAHAHA AAAAAAHHAHAHAHA AHAHAHA AHA
