Drake confirmed its September 3 release date on Instagram. It’s his first full-length studio record since 2018’s Scorpion, but Drake has more recently issued the Scary Hours 2 EP after last year’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes. The album was first scheduled for release in January, but Drake delayed the project indefinitely that month.
He took to Instagram to share the official tracklist of Certified Lover Boy and the expected worldwide arrival.
