At 2 a.m. Drake released his sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy.
Leading up to the drop, the Toronto rapper stirred up some promotion for the highly-anticipated album by previewing the featured artists on billboards in their home states. Some were less specific than others like the one in New York that read, “Hey New York The GOAT is on CLB” but now it is confirmed that the “GOAT” is none other than rap mogul Jay-Z.
Certain lyrics are getting a lot of attention as fans give CLB its first listen-through. On “Race My Mind” Drake raps, “How I’m supposed to wife you if you ain’t Ayesha enough,” referring to the star NBA Steph Curry’s wife Ayesha Curry.
Another is Jay’s verse on “All Love” where he gets a lot off of his chest per Newsweek.
“N—– wanted to kill me and yall still with em
N—– y’all chill with em and y’all wonder why we not friends
Best thing I can do is not build with you
When I could destroy you, that takes some f—– discipline
I could send a team to come drill you, I got a billion or two
And I know where the f— you live
N—– gotta chill with talking gangsta
You ought to thank us and just chill a bit”
The Certified Lover Boy wasn’t showing all love when it came to his beef with Kanye, and he, too, also got some stuff off of his chest.
On “7am Bridle Path” Drake rapped per TMZ:
“Told you I’m aimin’ straight for the head
Now they ‘Amen’ and ‘Please’
I can give a f— about who designing your sneakers and tees
Had somebody put you on a guilt and you play with my seed.
Trust me, there’s some s— you really gotta come and see to believe
That’s why your people not believers, they all leavin’ ya
You know the fourth level of jealousy is called ‘Media.'”
It seems like already Drake will be giving IG captions all through the rest of this year. See what fans think so far about the album:
