Drake delays new album release due to knee surgery

By | Published on Thursday 21 January 2021


Drake has scrapped plans to release his new album, ‘Certified Lover Boy’, this month. The record has been delayed indefinitely as he recovers from knee surgery he underwent in October.

“I was planning to release my album this month”, he wrote in an Instagram story post. “But between surgery and rehab my energy has been dedicated to recovery. I’m blessed to be back on my feet, feeling great and focused on the album, but ‘CLB’ won’t be dropping in January”.

Plans for the album release have been in motion for some time. First (and so far only) single ‘Laugh Now Cry Later’ was released back in August.

So, fans might be disappointed that a new album is not as imminent as they thought. Still, it possibly won’t dent their Drake listening hours much – it was recently reported that he is the first artist to pass 50 billion streams on Spotify.
