Drake revealed that his forthcoming album, Certified Lover Boy, is being delayed. The rapper wrote via Instagram Story, “I was planning to release my album this month but between surgery and rehab, my energy has been dedicated to recovery. I’m blessed to be back on my feet and feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t be dropping in January. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in 2021.” Drake did not disclose any details about his procedure. However, back in October, he posted a photo to social media of his leg resting while in a brace.
Drake had previously announced his sixth studio album in April 2020 while dropping his 14-track mixtape, Dark Lane Demo Tapes. At the time, he said that Certified Lover Boy was set to be released that summer. And in October 2020, Drake released a teaser for his upcoming album with the caption “January 2021” as the release date.
