Drake has dropped one of his patented timestamp songs, and it’s titled “8AM IN CHARLOTTE.” The track produced by frequent Westside Gunn collaborator, Conductor Williams, follows Drake’s recent two-night tour stop in Charlotte last month. Released in the early hours on Thursday, October 5, the track was unveiled ahead of his highly anticipated new album, For All the Dogs, set to drop on Friday.

Either way, the city of Charlotte has now been immortalized in Drake’s song catalog.
