Drake is a big Opium guy.

Just a couple of weekends ago, Drake came through and dropped off his new album, For All The Dogs. Overall, it is a project that has proven to be quite polarizing. However, that has not stopped it from achieving incredible success on the Billboard charts. It is the biggest album in the entire world right now, and for good reason. It has sold over 400K units in its first week on streaming which is pretty impressive. Although it does bring in the end of an era as Drizzy looks to take a break from making music.

This has given the artist some time to relax and listen to other artists. For instance, he has been listening to none other than Ken Carson. We know this because Drake took to his Instagram story and posted a screengrab of him listening to "Jennifer's Body." This is a song that was already viral on TikTok well before the release of the album. Regardless, it serves as one of the best tracks and it is cool to see Drizzy giving Carson a huge co-sign.
