Sorry, Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” Album Won’t Be Dropping This Month! In October 2020, Drake announced that his next project Certified Lover Boy (CLB) would be out in January 2021. Following this announcement, the album has been the talk of town since New Year’s. The internet has been abuzz with rumors of a possible release date amid a leakage of songs from the project. The wait has been long and to make matters worse, Drake has been relatively quiet, and the few times he spoke, the rapper didn’t have much to say; only indicating that he was “still working on it”.
Okay, if you are a fan and you had high hopes of seeing the album drop later this month, then I’m sorry to burst your bubble. Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” Album Won’t Be Dropping This Month! Now, you will have to wait a little bit longer after the rapper issued an update that the album will not be arriving this month. The rapper hit Instagram with an update via Instagram stories to his fans, breaking the bad news that the album has been delayed.
“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, feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t be dropping in January. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in 2021.”
Although Drake did not share much details of his condition, it is believed that the rapper underwent knee surgery in October 2020, going by the photo of his knee in a brace he shared on his Instagram story back then.
The fact that there isn’t a timeline we could expect the album complicates everything. Anyway, we have no choice but keep waiting. Interestingly, Drake’s message arrived just a day after a tweet from Charlie Puth’s Twitter account announced that Drake’s album would allegedly be dropping yesterday (January 21st). “Drake’s dropping on the 21st” he tweeted.
