DRAKE has stunned fans by dropping a new album overnight – but it hasn't gone down well with some.
The 35-year-old released Honestly, Nevermind – his seventh studio album – at midnight on Thursday with just a few hours' notice, sending social media into a frenzy.
However, after staying up to listen to the tracks, fans were left far from impressed after the rapper opted to go in a new musical direction.
Taking to Twitter, one disgruntled listener penned: "Honestly, Nevermind is, quite frankly, the worst album that Drake has ever dropped."
Echoing their comments, someone else said: "Pretending that Drake's new album is actually good is exhausting. It's whack – simple as that."
While a third remarked: "Honestly, Nevermind sounds like elevator music. What on earth was Drake thinking?"

Honestly, Nevermind – which features 14 tracks in total – came as a complete surprise, with Drake doing no prior promotion for it.
It comes after the Canadian musician sent fans into a frenzy when he posted the cover art for the project, following last year's release of Certified Lover Boy.
The exciting announcement was liked by millions of his followers within the first two hours, including former rap rival, Kanye West.
The swiftness of the new project might be partly due to the God's Plan star's reported recent singing of a $400million recording contract earlier this year.
