Drake's new album For All the Dogs is supposedly arriving at midnight. Following SZA-featuring lead single "Slime You Out" — and that controversy over using Halle Berry's photo as the artwork without her consent — the rapper has offered up another preview of the collection with "8AM in Charlotte," which arrives alongside a music video.

The video stars Drake's son and graphic designer Adonis, who leads off the clip by offering some insight into his art, which adorns the album cover. "It's Daddy GOAT," he clarifies.

Continuing the rapper's series of songs timestamped in various cities, Drake wears leather cargo pants and colourful hair clips while giving us the usual state of the union about keeping his pockets lined, tearful dinners and sneak disses over a soul sample. At one point he rhymes "Jordan Peele" with "orange peel." Meanwhile, Adonis and everyone else in the video have "HATE SURVIVOR" bravely emblazoned across their chests.

For now, the song isn't available on streaming services. The video wasn't even posted to YouTube; just across social media channels. Watch the video below.
