Good news: the wait is finally over, folks. Several feuds and diss-tracks later, Drizzy's highly anticipated new album is officially set to drop. Here's what to know about the upcoming release.

Titled, Certified Lover Boy, the latest album will be available for streaming starting Friday, the 3rd. But you didn't hear it from us. "CERTIFIED LOVER BOY SEPTEMBER 3," Drake announced on the 'gram August 30, confirming heavy speculation. Sure enough, one glance at the album's cover art below was enough to get people talking...

"I really hope this dude trolling because man... it’s just offensively bad it makes me disgusted to even look at it," one user quickly shaded. "Drake must have lost a bet cause this album cover," wrote another. We'll let you guys be the judge of that one. What we can say, though, is that the latest drop - as controversial as it might be - was actually a long time coming.

In case you forgot, CLB was actually slated to drop back in January. But as we already know, things didn't exactly go as planned. Then again, maybe that's exactly what Drizzy wants us to think. As fans were quick to notice, perhaps the delay was no mistake, after all. From the album's cover art to the amount of time since its original release date, has this all been a part of god's his plan? "The album is 9 MONTHS late and is coming out over LABOR day weekend…. Drake a genius fr," one user noted.

While we'll have to wait until the 3rd to see how that theory plays out, we've got other news to keep you busy in the meantime. Of course, we're talking about 'Ye's latest drop, Donda, which saw him beefing with Drizzy leading up to its release. Didn't catch it on your feed? Let's just say, their battle of the albums got messy, real quick. And we've got a feeling they won't be hugging it out anytime soon. Might 'Ye's name find its way onto Certified Lover Boy?

Stay tuned.
