Today, the team at Island are hugely excited for the release of Drake’s long-awaited LP Certified Lover Boy, the sixth studio album from the global superstar.
In addition to billboards appearing in Drake’s hometown of Toronto to herald the arrival of the album, Drake has once again collaborated with Nike on some exclusive Certified Lover Boy merch including t-shirts, bomber jackets and socks. The collection includes three t-shirts featuring lyrics from the upcoming album and a reimagined Nike swoosh decorated with roses.
Drake hinted to fans last week that the album was imminent on ESPN’s flagship program SportsCenter, sneaking in an image of a fan holding up a sign reading “CLB September 3” between baseball highlights. Drake's last full-length studio album was 2018's number one Scorpion, although more recent projects have included March’s surprise Scary Hours 2 EP and 2020's chart-topping Dark Lane Demo Tapes. Just this year, he has totted up an impressive six UK Top 40 singles, and received the Artist of the Decade Award at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards in May.
