Drake‘s new album Certified Lover Boy has garnered a lot of attention in the past week, and it’s arguable that the album cover alone has received a great deal of interest. The cover art caused divisive public opinions, leaving some unsure of how they feel about the work of British artist Damien Hirst.

The 12-emoji album cover has become a viral hit, with many sharing their own renditions of the artwork in recent weeks. Now, Canadian software engineer Niko Draca has created a free-to-use Certified Lover Boy Emoji Generator that allows anyone to join in on the viral phenomenon. The microsite takes any Unicode Emoji character and alters them to appear pregnant, whether male or female in a wide range of skin tones and various shirt colours. Draca recently commented on how he was inspired to create the Emoji Generator sharing, “I saw people making their own emojis in the same style, particularly Lil Nas X, and thought it would be fun to make an app for even more people to get in on the fun.”

Draca, who is working as an engineer for Shopify in Montreal has always had a passion for “working on projects that intersect pop cutlure and technology.” He adds, “I wrote code to collect every emoji off of Emojipedia and transform the images into smaller ‘parts’ of an emoji. Think of it like Mr Potato Head, but emojis. Writing code to create all of these new images was a bit of a pain.” Within the first 24 hours of launching the site, the CLB Emoji Generator saw over 10,000 visitors. Those interested can give it a try here.

In other Drake news, The Boy has reflected on his “certified classcis” with a nostalgic art piece.
