Drake Announces New Album 'Certified Lover Boy'
Drake’s album has a title.
In addition to releasing his new single “Laugh Now Cry Later,” the Toronto rapper has revealed the name of his sixth studio album–Certified Lover Boy. Champagne Papi announced the title to his 70 million Instagram followers on Thursday night.
“Laugh Now Cry Later off my next studio album CERTIFIED LOVER BOY,” he captioned his post.
The “Laugh Now Cry Later” video features Lil Durk, along with cameos from Kevin Durant, Odell Beckham Jr., and Marshawn Lynch. The Lover Boy title is also referenced on the back of Drake’s Nike shirt in a scene where he plays basketball with Durant. At the end of the Dave Meyers-directed clip, the initials “CLB” and a rose appear on screen.
Certified Lover Boy marks the follow-up to 2018’s Scorpion, which Drake previously said would arrive this summer. “My 6th STUDIO ALBUM DROPPING SUMMER 2020!!! Lucky number 6 😈 soon fwd,” he told fans in May.
A release could be imminent. Earlier this month, his engineer/producer OVO Noel revealed that Drake is “90 percent” done with the highly-anticipated project.
