Drake Delays Release Of “Certified Lover Boy”

Drake announced yesterday that he will be delaying the release of his latest album. “Certified Lover Boy” is the rapper’s sixth full-length studio album, and was set to release this month.

However, Drake said on his Instagram stories he will be focusing on his recovery from surgery, thus pushing back the album release. We will have to just be patient, folks.

His Message To Fans

Drake took to Instagram to share the news with his fans. He shared a note on his instagram stories. The album was set to release January 20th, 2021. 

“I was planning to release my album this month but between surgery and rehab my energy has been dedicated to recovery,” he wrote. “I’m blessed to be back on my feet and feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t be dropping in January.”

Drake ended his message confirming that the album will still be arriving this year. “I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in 2021,” he concluded.

Though he has not shared any details on his surgery, back in October, he had uploaded a photo of his leg in a brace. The photo led to speculations that he suffered a knee injury.

A Certified Success

“Certified Lover Boy” will mark Drake’s sixth full-length studio album and will be the follow up to 2018’s “Scorpion”. On August 14th, 2020, Drake revealed the album’s title to be “Certified Lover Boy” alongside the release of “Laugh Now Cry Later” featuring Lil Durk. The song is the first single to be released from this new project. 

In other news, Drake has now surpassed 50 billion streams on Spotify across all credits. He is the first artist in history to hit this milestone! Drake has also previously been named Spotify’s most-streamed artists of the 2010s. This is followed by Ed Sheeran, Post Malone and Ariana Grande
