I practically stop in my tracks for anything Drake related. Dramatic? Yes. Do I care? Absolutely not! Drake truly has a way to the heart of his fans throughout each album he produces. It’s practically solidified that with every album he drops you’ll find a track that describes exactly what you’re going through.
So, to all my fellow Drake fans, if you weren’t aware of this pleasing news before I’m excited to enlighten you. Our favorite artist has recently announced he’s releasing a new studio album titled “Certified Lover Boy” that drops in January 2021. When I saw the news about his upcoming project, an immediate wave of happiness came over me.
Not only did he publish the news of his upcoming project’s name, but he also released a teaser video on his 34th birthday via his record label, OVO sound, on his social media accounts. Check out the link to the video below:

What I loved about the teaser trailer for his upcoming release “Certified Lover Boy” is that he channels the energy of that title and his nostalgic past albums that best resonates with the theme. Drake recreates images from his past album covers of “Take Care,” “Nothing Was the Same,” and “Dark Lane Demo Tapes” that gives the impression that “Certified Lover Boy” will definitely be the masterpiece of the new decade.
After the project of “Certified Lover Boy,” this will only be Drake’s sixth studio album release. His steam doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon even though he’s had quite the year of 2020 track releases and collaborations. If you can’t wait for Drake’s new album to drop and hopefully give us the luck we need for 2021, hit me up and let me know.
