Drake’s new album cover for Certified Lover Boy is confusing the heck out of fans
Written by Diar Shala on August 31, 2021
Drake just revealed what appears to be the Damien Hirst-designed cover art for his soon-to-drop album Certified Lover Boy — and it’s effectively just one emoji repeated twelve times over in different colour schemes.
“CERTIFIED LOVER BOY SEPTEMBER 3,” reads the caption of an Instagram post shared by Champagne Papi on Monday morning, confirming the highly-anticipated record’s release date for the first time since he “hacked” SportsCenter with a cryptic promo on Friday.
The image shows Unicode’s Pregnant Woman emoji, as displayed on Apple devices, twelve times: Three horizontal rows all containing four emojis per.
Each woman has a different shirt colour and their skin tones vary to represent the five options available on iPhones, minus the default all-yellow character.

At face value, it seems to suggest that Drake likes many different types of women, but everybody already knows this. What we don’t know is how many secret children the artist has actually fathered: Fans didn’t learn about the existence of precious little Adonis until the kid was nearly two.
Perhaps coincidentally, perhaps not, Drake confirmed that he had a son (after Pusha T leaked the news) through lyrics on his fifth and most-recent studio album, Scorpion.
Now I’m not saying that Drake is about to reveal he has 11 more kids because of the 12 pregnant emojis on his purported album cover for CLB… but wouldn’t that be amazing?
