Drake just pulled a Beyonce!

The rapper shocked fans by released a surprise full-length mixtape late Thursday night. The 17-track album, titled If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, features appearances by Lil’ Wayne, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Travi$ Scott.

Drake teased the album’s release early Thursday with introspective short film "Jungle" and confirmed fan suspicions when he tweeted out a cryptic link around 8 p.m. PST.

The surprise release echos Beyonce’s groundbreaking self-titled album release in December 2013, when the diva released not just a full-length album but also 17 accompanying short film music videos. 

Not surprisingly, the rapper's fans went nuts.

If You're Reading This It’s Too Late is available for download on iTunes.
