The latest album project from Drake, the album was supposed to be released in January, however, it was postponed.
Drake said his album Certified Lover Boy will be out before the end of the summer in an interview at the Ultimate Rap League’s N.O.M.E. XI battle rap event over the weekend.
Drake did not disclose a specific release date for his new album, but he did mention that he will be attending another forthcoming battle, Summer Madness. Drake initially declined to attend Summer Madness because he said he was too busy working on his album. When told that the battle will take place “at the end of the summer,” Drake said, “Oh, I’ll be there, my record will be out by then.”
Despite Drake’s upbeat response, fans may be suspicious until Certified Lover Boy has an official release date, given the album’s lengthy delay.
The album’s title and what was thought to be its debut single, the Lil Durk-assisted “Laugh Now, Cry Later,” were released in August 2020. Although the album was not released in 2020, Drake did release a teaser video in which he recreated his former album covers and announced that CLB would be released in January 2021.
Unfortunately, by the time January rolled around, Drake had recovered from a knee injury, forcing him to postpone the release of the album.
“I was planning to release my album this month, but my energy has been spent to rehabilitation between surgery and rehab,” he wrote in a statement to fans. “I am grateful to be back on my feet and focusing on the album, but CLB will not be released in January.”
Drake hasn’t provided us many updates on the status of CLB since then. There hasn’t been a shortage of Drake content, though. He released the Scary Hours 2 EP in March. Drake’s three-song project set Billboard records by debuting at Nos. 1, 2, and 3 on the songs list. He recently collaborated with Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne on “Seeing Green,” as well as Migos on “Having Our Way.”
Fans will hopefully not have to wait long for a new Drake album.
