One way to console Drake fans disappointed by the delay of his upcoming album? Reveal the two different covers for it!

Drizzy did just that yesterday (Aug. 21), posting a link to the artist who produced the pair of companion covers for his third studio album, 'Nothing Was the Same.' Both images -- similar but not the 'same' --feature bright blue backgrounds and profiles of the different subjects. The artwork for the original album shows Drake as a child, with a comb sticking out of his afro. The deluxe art pictures a current Drake (shown below), facing the opposite direction, shirtless and sporting a gold chain.

But first, he told fans the new release date, one week later than what had originally been announced:

 

He quickly followed that up with a link to the Twitter account of Southern California artist and writer Kadir Nelson:

 

Nelson -- read more about him and his works here -- then posted the images, first to the album in its original form:

 

And then the cover of the deluxe version:

 

Drizzy has been dropping tracks from and info about 'Nothing Was the Same' for a while now, and these images are just yet the latest glimpse into what fans can look forward to with the album ... even if they have to wait a bit longer for the real deal.

Can't wait for more Drake? Catch him performing at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (Aug. 25)!
