Drake Says He's Taking a Break From Music To Focus On His Health
After the drop of his latest album, "For All the Dogs," and amidst wrapping up his dynamic "It’s All a Blur" tour alongside 21 Savage, Drake has disclosed his intention to take a step back from the recording studio. Having released three albums in just over a year, the artist, on his SiriusXM radio show, "Table for One," candidly revealed that he's prioritizing his health due to persistent stomach issues.
“[I’m] probably not going to make music for a little bit, I’mma be real with you. I need to focus on my health, first and foremost,” confessed Drake during the show.

He further explained, “I’ve been having the craziest problems with my stomach for years. I need to get right, I have a lot of other things I would love to focus on so I’m going to lock the door on the studio for a little bit. I don’t know what a little bit is. Maybe a year or something. Maybe a little bit longer.”
