With just five days until release, Drake has revealed the official cover art for his long-awaited album Certified Lover Boy. The artwork was designed by famed artist Damien Hirst and features 12 pregnant woman emojis in various skin tones and shirt colors, inspired by Hirst’s signature spot paintings.
Drake also confirmed that his sixth studio album will drop Friday, Sept 3. The date was cryptically announced during an ESPN “SportsCenter” broadcast last week, but this is the first time Drake has acknowledged it.
The follow-up to 2018’s Scorpion has been a long time coming. Drake originally said it would arrive in January, but it was pushed after he suffered a knee injury. The project went on to face several delays, with Drake most recently revealing that it would drop by the end of summer.
“Album’s cooked. Looking forward to delivering it to you,” he told fans. “Certified Lover Boy on the way, and that’s for anyone in the way.”
