Drake is posting huge numbers with his sixth studio album, “Certified Lover Boy.” This project was finally released last week, after a nine-month delay. Fans were treated to 21 tracks, with appearances from Future, Travis Scott, Jay Z, and more.
Now, Drake is making more big plays. ESPN has just announced that he will be curating music for their Monday Night Football broadcasts, in the 2021 NFL season. Drake will handle these playlists for 10 games. Drake will also be playing some of his records, as well as other artists that he’s feeling.
“Now we are here … the kickoff of the football season,” ESPN’s VP of Sports Marketing, Emeka Ofodile, said Tuesday. “And, who better to curate music for Monday Night Football than Drake, who sits firmly at the intersection of music and sports.”
A week ago, a sign was aired on a morning edition of SportsCenter, which said “CLB September 3.” ESPN went on to label this incident as having “technical difficulties,” which many didn’t believe. Now, this partnership makes it more evident, that ESPN did approve the CLB sign.
