Rapper Drake from the United States says his hiatus would extend for at least a year.
He admitted to long-term stomach pain and emphasized the importance of concentrating on getting better.
Rapper Drake, a superstar, has declared that he will put his health first and take a vacation from the music industry.
The chart-topping singer announced his decision to withdraw from public view indefinitely in an emotional message, citing the urgent need to look after his medical well-being.
Drake disclosed this on his SiriusXM radio show, Table For One, on Friday, just hours after the release of his new album, ‘For All The Dogs.’
He stressed that he had been dealing with stomach troubles for years and that the break, which would last for a year or more, would allow him to concentrate on his health.
“I probably won’t make music for a little bit, I’m gonna be honest.
“I need to focus on my health, first and foremost… Nothing crazy, but just like, you know, I want people to be healthy in life, and I’ve been having the craziest problems for years with my stomach.”
“I’m going to lock the door on the studio for a little bit. I don’t even know what a little bit is. Maybe a year or something. Maybe a little longer,” Drake said.
Drake recently passed 350 million searches to become the most shazammed artist of all time.
On the list of important events for Shazam as the digital platform marks its 20th anniversary was Drake’s song. The most Shazamed music by genre, the very first Shazammed song, and more may be found on the list that Shazam has made public.
The singer’s searches included both his own music and songs on which he appeared as a guest artist, and his most well-known tune, “One Dance,” has received over 17 million Shazams.
The 2012 song “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, featuring Ray Dalton, was named the most Shazamed Hip-Hop song ever. Lil Wayne, who accomplished the accomplishments in 2009 and 2010, was the first artist to crack over one million and 10 million Shazams.
