Ethan Miller/Getty Images via ABCIt looks like Drake‘s forthcoming album has a name after all. 

The “Passionfruit” rapper unveiled a picture of himself on Instagram Monday wearing a jacket with the word “Scorpion” emblazoned on the back. 

Beneath the album title shows the words “June Twenty Eighteen by Drake.” In the caption of the message he writes, “JUNE 2018.”  

Drizzy’s exciting news comes on the heels of his “Nice For What” track and music video release. 

The song features samples from Lauryn Hill’s 1998 hit “Ex-Factor” and a slew of female celebrities are featured in the visual, including ballerina Misty CopelandTracee Ellis Ross and her black-ish co-star Yara Shahidi and Tiffany Haddish.   

Drake’s hit song “God’s Plan” was dethroned Monday from the top spot on Billboard‘s Hot 100 to number two …thanks to “Nice for What.” 

“Nice for What” made its debut on the chart at number one Monday and is now Drake’s fifth Hot 100 #1 song.  Drake is only the 13th artist in history to replace himself at #1.

“God’s Plan” spent a total of 11 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and was just the fifth song in history to spend its first 10 weeks on the chart at number one.
