Certified Lover Boy is the sixth studio album by Canadian rapper Drake. It was released on September 3, 2021, through OVO Sound and Republic Records. The album was initially set to be released in January 2021, but was delayed. It features guest appearances by Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Giveon, Jay-Z, Travis Scott, Future, Young Thug, Yebba, 21 Savage, Project Pat, Tems, Ty Dolla Sign, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Kid Cudi. Thematically, Drake explained that Certified Lover Boy is “a combination of toxic masculinity and acceptance of truth which is inevitably heartbreaking”.

Since 2016 and his fourth album Views, Drake has changed dimension and his artistic direction. Seeking the musical hit, often with brilliance, allowing all his influences to bloom on his mixtape More Life in 2017 or dividing the critics with Dark Lane Demo Tapes in 2020, here he is returning to his first loves. Certified Lover Boy is frontal and gargantuan in terms of lyrics as Drake has something to say. Starting with settling scores with Kanye West or with the industry. But after the storm comes the calm, as with the tracks Pipe Down or 7am On A Bridle Path, these are the moments when the Canadian can leave aside the discursive to at last please himself, and to explore what he does best. On the first tracks such as Champagne Theory or Papi’s Home, Drake has superbly placed Certified Lover Boy under the sampling prism. But that is only a foretaste. For when he summons Metro Boomin to perform in Knife Talk or the trap bosses Future and Young Thug on Way 2 Sexy, he cuts to the essential, looks ahead and makes this album one of his best releases since 2015. – Brice Miclet
