Drake has announced that he’s planning on dropping his sixth album Certified Lover Boy, the highly-anticipated follow-up to his chart-topping album ‘Scorpion’, before the end of summer.
The OVO rapper has steadily been dropping clues that fans can expect new music in the near future, following the success of his recent string of singles including ‘Laugh Now Cry Later’, ‘Toosie Slide’, ‘Life Is Good’ and ‘Going Bad’.
Drizzy even treated fans to a quarantine gift in May 2020 when he released his mixtape ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’, made up of 14 songs, and featuring guest appearances from Chris Brown Young Thug and Playboi Carti.
Drake’s new album will also be his sixth, which is a special number for the Canadian rapper from Toronto.
During an appearance on Sound 42’s Fri Yiy Friday radio show on Friday (Jul 30th), Drake confirmed the album is finished.
The rapper said: “Album’s ready… album’s cooked, looking forward to delivering it to you… ‘Certified Lover Boy’ on the way and that’s for anyone in the way”.
In July 2021, Drake confirmed that CLB was entering the mixing process. Speaking on the Fry Yiy Friday show by Sound 42 on Sirius XM, Drizzy told OVO Noel that Noel’s daughter would be hearing his music very soon.
“Drake’s on his way back home to mix the album so she’s got a bunch of new tracks coming her way,” he said, “Definitely on the way home to reunite with my dog and just finish this thing up.”
In June 2021, Drake announced CLB will arrive before the end of summer. Speaking at the Ultimate Rap League’s N.O.M.E. XI battle rap event, the rapper said he planned on attending the Summer Madness event, before spilling that the album would be released by that point. “I’ll be there. My album will be out by then,” he said.
On Wednesday (20 Jan), Drake has revealed that Certified Lover Boy will be no longer be dropping in January 2021 as he previously announced.
“I was planning to release may album this month but between surgery and rehab my energy has been dedicated to recovery,” he wrote on his Instagram story.
“I’m blessed to be back on my feet feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t be dropping in January,” he continued, “I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in 2021.”
Later in January, the rapper was spotted in the Bahamas after announcing the album’s delay.
