Drake Confirms New Album Certified Lover Boy Is Out Friday

(Pitchfork) – Drake’s new album Certified Lover Boy is out Friday, September 3, he confirmed in an Instagram post Monday morning (August 30). The post features the official album cover, too, according to Tidal’s chief content officer Elliott Wilson. Announced last August with the Lil Durk collaboration “Laugh Now Cry Later,” Certified Lover Boy was first set for a January release before repeated delays. Today’s confirmation follows a cryptic ESPN promo last week pointing to the September 3 release date.
Though Certified Lover Boy is the full-length successor to 2018’s Scorpion, Drake has released some new material in between, including last year’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes. The project—Drake’s first in a decade not to make a No. 1 Billboard debut—included his attempted dance challenge “Toosie Slide.”
