After fans received a new Kendrick Lamar verse and a third Donda listening event from Kanye West within the last few hours, it was only a matter of time before Drake barreled his way through the news cycle with some potentially breaking information. On Friday (Aug. 27), Drizzy seemingly announced the release date for his long-awaited album, Certified Lover Boy, on ESPN's flagship program SportsCenter.
The reveal was a slick one, as he snuck in an image of a fan holding up a sign reading "CLB September 3" in-between baseball highlights. Drake's affinity for sports runs deep, as he once hosted the 2014 ESPY's, signifying his ties to ESPN, the self-proclaimed worldwide leader in sports.
In July, Drake announced during his appearance on Fri Yiy Friday -- a Sirius XM radio show spearheaded by his OVO Team -- that he finished Certified Lover Boy during his appearance. "Album's ready … Album's cooked, looking forward to delivering it to you. Certified Lover Boy on the way, and that's for anyone in the way."
