Editor's Notes: Now that the dust has (somewhat) settled from the surprise release of Drake's Honestly Nevermind and accompanying music video, we can return to some version of normalcy. In case you slept through the weekend, Drizzy sent social media into a frenzy with the release of a new Dance and House-heavy album. To say the new tracks split opinions would be a light assessment, as fans' reactions included everything from deeming it a Zara album to a masterpiece in experimentation.

Whichever side of the fence you sat on, I think we can all agree that the promise of new NOCTA is always a welcomed one. Earlier this year, Drake's debut NOCTA x Nike reached the market in the form of the Hot Step Air Terra, and much like his recent music releases, opinions were split, despite the mass hype.

Despite the sneaker's mixed reception, sizes of both the black and white colorways flew off shelves and kept people talking. If there's such a thing as the Drake effect, this is probably it.

Once those first colorways rolled out, the Champagne Papi IG became a staging ground to tease even more new colorways, which we've seen cropping up all over a variety of sneaker pages in the last couple of months.

Well, the rumor mill can finally settle as official images of the "Black/Yellow" Hot Step Air Terra have been released by Nike. While it's unclear what kind of number these will do considering mixed reactions (yet again) online, one thing we can be sure of, at least, is that Pittsburgh Steelers fans will go crazy for this color pairing.
