Drake revealed on Oct. 24, which was also the Canadian rapper’s 34th birthday, that his project “Certified Lover Boy” will drop in January 2021. The “Nonstop” rapper’s announcement of “Certified Lover Boy” comes two years after “Scorpion” the album’s predecessor. Drake’s label OVO shared a teaser on Saturday confirming the long-awaited album.
The album was initially set for a summer release but was delayed due to COVID. The first single “Laugh Now Cry Later” featuring Lil Dark was released on Aug. 14 and reached the #2 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
In the teaser, Drake channels old album covers with multiple poses that reenact album covers from “Take Care”, “Nothing Was the Same”, and “So Far Gone”. Aerial shots of Toronto are also situated throughout the promo video ending with a graphic on the roof of Roy Thomson Hall.
Fans spazz out about a menu item at Drake’s birthday celebration amid album announcement.
Speaking of Drake’s birthday. After a fun-filled weekend, fans questioned a menu item on Drake’s party menu. A snapshot of the menu circulated social media and critics felt a menu item was totally off. Fans didn’t hold back when they noticed the item either.

The mac and cheese consisted of ingredients some people weren’t too fond of. Sun-dried tomatoes, raisins, and parsley, and capers made some fans want to speak out about a version of mac and cheese that didn’t sit well with them.

Even if the mac and cheese was not your normal menu item, the “Take Care” rapper celebrated another year of life and announced a new project following the release of a recent one. Earlier this year, he dropped the Dark Lane Demo Tapes on SoundCloud featuring collaborations with Future, Giveon, Young Thug, and Playboi Carti.
Will Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” do numbers?
Drake is the highest-selling individual artist based on certified units, according to the RIAA. To date, he’s sold 163.5 million units. “Certified Lover Boy” will be Drake’s sixth studio album. Will fans migrate to the album as they’ve done with a few of Drake’s hottest albums like “Take Care” and “Nothing Was the Same?”
