“8am in Charlotte” is the seventeenth track from Canadian rapper, singer and songwriter Drake and his eighth studio album “For All The Dogs”, which was released in October 2023 through OVO and Republic Records. The song is a continuance of Drake’s “[timestamp] in [city]” series of tracks, one he has been creating for many years.
The hip-hop track sees Drake chat about his usual themes of wealth, fame, and people being jealous of his success and popularity, as well as thanking God for all he has. The song samples “A Faithful Spirit”, written by L. Santi and Nichol Eskridge.
The music video premiered on the 6th October 2023 through Drake’s official YouTube channel, and features his son Adonis and Drake’s team, while Drake raps the song. In one month, the video had received over 5.3 million views.
