Drake calls Certified Lover Boy album July 2021, as the project is currently being listened to at private events with OVO Sound this month. This week, DJ Akademiks revealed that he had a conversation with The Boy last weekend, about the long-awaited project. In the chat, Drake cited that the injury was the real reason why the album hasn’t been released yet.

According to Ak, Drake went as far as to say that he stopped everything and wanted to first walk again, after suffering an injury that required surgery. Sadly, hip-hop fans didn’t care about his injury, regardless of the mental and physical state Mr. Graham was in. During his recovery, it seemed like Drake was depressed after not being able to go outside and spend time with friends and family.

There, he wanted to have a vibe for the project, which has luckily been recovered this summer. Drake said that he felt very confident about the project, even with it having high expectations. The general feeling from the listening sessions, is that he surpassed every expectation, from the presumable 12-15 track effort. Take a listen to Ak explaining everything below.
