Fans anxiously awaiting Drake‘s sixth studio album will have to wait a little longer.
The rapper took to his Instagram Stories on Wednesday (Jan. 20) to share that Certified Lover Boy will not be arriving in January as previously announced.
“I was planning to release my album this month but between surgery and rehab my energy has been dedicated to recovery,” he wrote. “I’m blessed to be back on my feet and feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t be dropping in January.”
Drake ended his note by confirming that the album will still be arriving this year. “I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in 2021,” he concluded.

Though the rapper has not shared any details on his surgery, back in October, he uploaded a photo of his leg in a brace, which prompted speculation that he suffered a knee injury.
