Drake is THE ‘Certified Lover Boy!’
After much anticipation, and just in time for cuffing season, Drizzy has finally dropped his sixth studio album Certified Lover Boy. The 21-track project, which was slated to arrive in January, features a number of artists, including Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and a few R&B greats, like Ty Dolla $ign and Giveon. Just days ago, the rapper used billboards across several cities to reveal the many guest appearances on the record.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to reveal their favourite tracks, (*cough* ‘7am On Bridle Path’ *cough*), and were also able to decode the album. On “You Only Live Twice, “many noticed Drake taking shots at Swizz Beatz, who previously dissed the Toronto artist by calling him a p***y on an Instagram live session with Busta Rhymes, and by threatening to “shoot his plane down.”
Unthinkable when I think of the way these n***as been actin’ / Yeah, I never did you nothin’ and you play like we family, huh? / Next thing, you wanna shoot me down, it can’t be love / Not sure where you was tryna send it, it can’t be up / That day you sounded like a b**ch, you fancy, huh?
On ‘7am on Bridle Path’, a Kanye West diss can be heard. Over the past few weeks, the two have reignited their feud online, which prompted West to share Drake’s home address in Toronto.
You know the fourth level of jealousy is called media / Isn’t that an ironic revelation?
Give that address to your driver, make it your destination / ‘Stead of just a post out of desperation / This me reachin’ the deepest state of my meditation / While you over there tryna impress the nation
As always, Drake delivers on Certified Lover Boy – and has once again blessed us with some Instagram-worthy captions!
