Drake’s new album is finally here! The artist fell Certified sweetheart Thursday night, after having to postpone the release by several months.
The album features 21 tracks and includes Lil Baby, Travis Scott, Lil Durk, Giveon, JAY-Z, Future, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Kid Cudi, Ty Dolla $ ign and Tems.
Not included in the new album is the track “Laugh Now, Cry Later” with Lil Durk, which was released in August 2020 in anticipation of the album’s original release date and was intended to be the main single.
In an issue, fans believe Drake is calling Kanye West after Donda the rapper apparently shared Drake’s Toronto address last month in a reported Instagram post that was later deleted. The song is titled “7am On Bridle Path,” which seems to refer to a neighborhood in Toronto where Drake owned a home.
“You know the fourth level of jealousy is called media / Isn’t that an ironic revelation? / Give that address to your driver, make it your destination / ‘Instead of just a post of desperation,’ read the text.
He continues: “It is me who reaches the deepest state of my meditation / Why are you over there trying to impress the nation?”
Fans reacted quickly on the pitch:

In addition to possibly igniting his apparent feud with West, the name Drake drops Ayesha Curry in his track, “Race My Mind.”
“How am I supposed to feel? / You are not Ayesha enough, ”he raps.
In her song, “No Friends in the Industry,” Drake also refers to American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson, who was barred from being selected to the U.S. Olympic team in Tokyo 2020 after testing positive for marijuana.
“And I’m like Sha’Carri, smoking them on and off the field (Aye),” the text read.
Finally, in “Champagne Poetry,” Drake mentions his 3-year-old son, Adonis, who raps: “I’ve been hot since my son was born.”
In “Repentance,” Drake also recites, “My son is the only thing I hate to be apart of.”
Not long after the album’s release, Drake dropped a music video for his song, “Way 2 Sexy,” featuring Young Thug.
Drake announced the album’s release date for Instagram on Monday and shared a photo of 12 pregnant women emojis with different hair and skin tones, created by conceptual artist Damien Hirst.
The album – which he originally announced for release in January – is Drake’s first full-length album since 2018 Scorpion, which included the three No. 1 singles “God’s Plan,” “Good for What” and “In My Emotions.”
He also published the compilation mix Dark Lane Demo Tapes in 2020 and dropped his EP Scary hours 2 back in March.
In the run-up to the album’s launch day, Drake received a countdown in the form of sweet flowers and poetic notes from his mother, Sandi Graham.
On Thursday, Drake shared a look at his mother’s message.
“It’s finally come, the countdown has reached one, for each new album my heart skips a beat as your mother has been the greatest treat of my life,” wrote his adoring mother. “It has been a long hard road together, now there is another day left. I will celebrate you son, more than you will ever know. Love you now and forever. ”
The road to this album has been particularly tough for Drake, who revealed back in January that he postponed the release because he had to undergo surgery and recover from the procedure.
He raps about this in his “The Remorse” track. “Dislocated shoulder, it’s hard to always reach back,” he says.
“I planned to release my album this month, but between surgery and rehabilitation, my energy has been dedicated to recovery,” Drake wrote in a post shared with his Instagram story in January, according to Billboard. “I am blessed to be on my feet again and feel great and focused on the album, but association does not fall in January. ”
Certified sweetheart is available for streaming and download now.
