September 3, 2021 has become a day to remember for Drake fans. Officially dropping his sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy, Drake has finally given fans his first album since 2018. The much-anticipated drop featured high-profile collaborators including Lil Baby, Lil Durk, GIVEON, JAY-Z, Travis Scott, Future, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Tems, Project Pat, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Kid Cudi. Prior to the release of the album, Drake took to the cities of his guest appearances to buy out billboards to announce to drop hints at who fans will hear on CLB.
In just the first day, Certified Lover Boy broke Spotify and Apple Music records for becoming the most-streamed album in just one day. He reached this feat in less than 12 hours, racking up more than 60 million streams across the United States. The Toronto rapper stays true to his roots, dropping a number of Canadian references and seemingly even taking a jab at fellow competitor Kanye West.
The release of his album garnered immense attention across the globe from fans including receiving congratulatory messages from big names like LeBron James, Trae Young and Tom Brady. Take a look below at how people around the world have reacted to Drake’s latest album, Certified Lover Boy.
