Drake hasn’t announced a release date for Certified Lover Boy yet but the release of DONDA doesn’t seem to have any effect on Drizzy’s plans. Earlier today, Trippie Redd finally shared his long-awaited collaboration with Drake, “Betrayal.” The aptly titled record finds Drake attacking his naysayers, and directly addressing Kanye’s rumored plans to drop DONDA on the same day as CLB.
“All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know/ Forty-five, forty-four (burned out), let it go/ Ye ain’t changin’ shit, it’s set in stone,” Drake raps on “Betrayal.” People like Akademiks noted that Drake is also taking shots at Pusha T on this bar.
Kanye West is hosting his third listening party for DONDA in Chicago this week. His manager, Bu, confirmed that the album would drop shortly after the listening party.
Drake has been offering minor updates on the album’s release. Earlier this month, LeBron James said that the album is “coming soon” but we can assume that Drake’s bout with COVID-19 impeded his original plans to drop before the summer closes out.
Regardless, it looks like we’ll be getting two solid albums from hip-hop’s heavyweights before the year comes to an end.
