Drake's new studio album is titled "Nothing Was The Same" and his fourth annual OVO Festival slated for Toronto will be much different than last year's: it's now a two-day affair.

The musician has confirmed James Blake and Frank Ocean for the festival slated for August 4-5 at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre with more artists for the lineup announced in the coming weeks. According to a press release issued this morning, Drake will headline the final night while Ocean will headline night one with Blake also on the bill. A festival poster with all the details was placed on the festival's site last night.

The fourth edition of OVO will have to meet high expectations judging from the surprise guest appearances the previous three years have had, including Jay-Z, Snoop Lion (then Snoop Dogg), Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and even Stevie Wonder. Will 2 Chainz and A$AP Rocky be possibilities this year? Or maybe Kendrick Lamar?

Tickets for OVO go on sale May 24 at 10 a.m. and range in price from $49.50 for a single day lawn ticket to $299.50 (plus service charges).

As reported earlier this week, Drake is up for 12 BET Awards with five nominations alone in the Video of the Year category.
