Following the release of his new album For All the Dogs, Drake has announced that he will not make music for a year or maybe longer due to health-related issues.

Drake's most recent album, For All the Dogs, will mark the Grammy-award-winning artist's final release for the year. The Canadian rapper announced this on October 6th during his radio interview with SiriusXM radio show, Table for One. Drake disclosed that he's been grappling with stomach problems for an extended period, which influenced his choice.

"I probably won't make music for a little bit. I need to focus on my health first and foremost. I have been having the craziest problem with my stomach for years. I am going to lock the door on the studios for a little bit. Maybe a year", Drake stated.
