For the fifth consecutive week, Drake topped the Billboard album chart ever since the release of his fifth studio album, Scorpion. More than 12,000 copies of the album have been sold in the United States ever since its release on June 29th, 2018. Upon its release, the album also broke streaming records. Drake is currently making an effort to trademark the phrase “God’s Plan,” which is the title of a song on the album, so that it may be added to a wide range of marketing materials, merchandise and promotional items. Furthermore, Drake may not actually be departing from Jordan Brand as everyone has been led to believe.
Is Drake Not Switching Over To Adidas?
On May 29th, 2018, Pusha T released a track titled “The Story of Adidon,” a song in which he disses Drake and alludes to the possibility that Drizzy has already signed an endorsement deal with adidas. Rumors that Drake was parting ways with Jordan Brand have already been circulating within the sneaker community since the past couple of months. It seems though that they might be nothing more than just rumors. Drake’s latest album, which has been topping the charts, offers some promising evidence and there is other proof that he is going to stick with Jordan Brand, even if he may have briefly considered the opposite.
In the song “Sicko World,” from Travis Scott’s recent third studio album “Astroworld,” Drake explicitly hints at his preference for “Checks for stripes” and adds “That’s what I like.” Of course, he is referring to his fondness for the Nike “Swoosh” logo instead of the adidas “Three Stripes” branding. Coincidentally, Travis Scott himself is a member of the Jordan Brand family. In the video of his own song “In My Feelings.” Drake appears laced up in an Air Jordan 5 pair. Champagne Papi recently even shared a photo of a special Navy-colored OVO x Nike jersey on Instagram, further suggesting that his allegiance remains with Jordan Brand.
