The wait is almost over.
After a series of delays, Drake has announced that Certified Lover Boy is finally finished. During his appearance on Sound 42’s “Fry Yiy Friday” on SiriusXM on Friday, Drizzy provided another update on his sixth studio album.
“Album’s cooked. Looking forward to delivering it to you,” he told fans. “Certified Lover Boy on the way, and that’s for anyone in the way.”
It’s unclear who he was referring to, but some speculate that it could be Kanye West, whose highly-anticipated album DONDA is slated to arrive Friday, Aug. 6.

Earlier this month, Drake announced that he was in the home stretch and was headed back to Toronto to mix the long-awaited follow-up to 2018’s Scorpion.
“Definitely on the way home to reunite with my dog and just finish this thing up,” he told OVO Noel.
While he has yet to put an official date on it, Drake previously said that Certified Lover Boy would arrive by the end of summer after it was delayed from January. “I’m back in the studio with 40 tough. I’m just really excited about the music that we’re making and I feel like I’ve locked into a zone where I’m really trying to execute on a project that’s fulfilling for my soul.”
While fans await CLB, Drake can be heard alongside OVO Sound’s newest signee Smiley on the rising Toronto rapper’s single “Over the Top.”
