It is clear that Drake is still working to perfect his upcoming project, Certified Lover Boy. Back in August 2020, The Boy dropped the album’s lead single, “Laugh Now, Cry Later,” with the help of Lil Durk. Following the release, he stated that the album would come later in the year. On his birthday, Oct. 24, he shared a promotional video for Certified Lover Boy, but revealed that he suffered a knee injury and had to undergo surgery. An incident as such would certainly cause him to be bedbound, and further delay the project.
According to a close friend and NFL superstar, Odell Beckham Jr., New Years Day, 2021 was the next release date. OBJ’s statement was later confirmed as the initial release date prior to Drake’s injury, per Akademiks. Since then Drake has posted pictures of studio sessions with him and his team, but no music just yet. A leaked track surfaced online entitled, “Lucky Lefty,” but it is unlikely that the song will make it to CLB. He shared a message last month, that the project will come in sometime in 2021. As of now, there are no specified dates.
Drake’s OVO camp took to the Night Owl Sound Instagram story to send a message regarding the highlight anticipated 6th studio album.
“Anything CLB related will be posted by DRAKE himself. Until then hold a seat and wait on it.”
Fans can do nothing but, wait on the most anticipated release of the year. In other news, Drake recently starred in the latest State Farm commercial that premiered during Super Bowl LV.
