Drake has finally confirmed the September 3 release date for his upcoming album, after months of waiting. While it was first believed that Drake and Kanye West’s albums will be released on the same day after West’s Donda album was released on Sunday, August 29, Drake has now confirmed that Certified Lover Boy will be released this week.
Drake let his fans know the big news by releasing a stunning image of numerous pregnant women emojis holding their belly.
Drake’s fans have been awaiting the release of this album for quite some time, as it is his first since 2018’s Scorpion. Meanwhile, Drake released Dark Lane Demo Tapes and Scary Hours 2 EP in March, while fans have been waiting for a full-length album from the singer.
