Complex - Certified Lover Boy, as studious Drake fans already know, was initially set for a January 2021 release. The album is still slated to drop this year, though no release date has been publicly confirmed. Late Wednesday night, however, Drake announced the impending arrival of new music.
Per the “Summer Games” maestro, we can expect something new to hit streaming services at midnight. In an Instagram post, he appeared to point to this new release being a sequel to his 2018 EP Scary Hours, which—quite notably, given that Certified Lover Boy is still expected this year—was followed mere months later by his fifth studio album Scorpion.
Last year, Drake gave fans something to hold them over in the form of the Dark Lane Demo Tapes project, which was supported by the quarantine-friendly video for lead single “Toosie Slide.”
Though there is quite literally nothing to suggest that such a thing is even a remote possibility, here’s to hoping that the new Scary Hours entry and/or the CLB album features a “Summer Games” sequel.
Coley blogged the Certified Lover Boy album getting pushed back due to Drake's ACL injury and rehab and how ridiculous that entire situation was in January.
Now that the laughing is over and it seems Drake is on the mend it appears the album release is very near.
Hate Drake all you want but he's the biggest rapper in the world right now so him releasing new material is a big deal. Especially considering that Drake's move is to drop an EP right before releasing a full-length album.
And it's an especially big deal when you consider the fact that the last time he released a Scary Hours EP we got what is arguably his best lyrical performance on "Diplomatic Immunity"
and what has turned out to be his biggest song in a career of huge songs, "God's Plan"
(Awesome video. Even the haters like this song. If you don't you might wanna change your diaper)
The new tracks "What's Next" is a solo affair, "Wants And Needs" features Lil Baby, and "Lemmon Pepper Freestyle" features Rick Ross.
Best track upon the first listen-through is Lemmon Pepper with Rozay. That is subject to change.
