Drake dominated all September, with the release of his sixth studio album, “Certified Lover Boy.” This project went on to be at the number one spot, on the Billboard 200 chart, for three consecutive weeks. It was also led by the chart-topping “Way 2 Sexy” record, ft. Future and Drake.
CLB is currently the number two album in the US, as NBA Youngboy’s “Sincerely, Kentrell,” debuted at the number one spot. CLB is still doing big streaming numbers, though. According to Chart Data, it has now passed 1 billion streams, on Spotify. Every album in Drake’s career has reached this mark.
CLB contained 21 tracks in total, with additional features from Jay Z, 21 Savage, Travis Scott, Lil Durk, Giveon, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and more. The album was initially delayed for nine months, as it was supposed to be out, in January.
Drake has been red-hot in 2021 overall, as he put out his “Scary Hours 2” EP, in March. This was to make up for the delay of CLB, as that project had three tracks, which all simultaneously debuted in the top three of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making Drake the first artist to do this. After CLB’s release, the album debuted nine songs, in the top 10.
