Tems Unveiled As Featured Artiste On Drake’s New Album ‘Certified Lover Boy’Nigerian songstress, Temilade Openiyi, popularly known as Tems, has been unveiled as a featured artiste on Drake‘s soon-to-be-released album “Certified Lover Boy”.

Months ago, Drake followed Tems on Instagram and now it seems that action has grown into a collaboration on Drake’s album slated to be released on Friday September 3rd, 2021.

For the past few days, Drake has been teasing fans by revealing featured with electronic billboards across the country.

Billboards have been spotted in Chicago, Atlanta, New York, Memphis, and Los Angeles — each one alluding to different artists being on CLB.

Atlanta announced Young Thug, Future, 21 Savage, and Lil Baby; Giveon and Ty Dolla $ign were announced on a LA billboard; Yebba and Project Pat were announced in Memphis; and Lil Durk was announced in Chicago.

However, there was one billboard that left some fans scratching their heads. It was an New York City sign that simply read, “Hey New York, the GOAT is on CLB.” Though it’s safe to assume the “GOAT” in question is Brooklyn native Jay-Z, others wondered if Drake was hinting at a Nas feature, or perhaps one from his frequent collaborator and former Young Money label mate, Nicki Minaj.

Fans have been waiting on Drake’s 10th studio album since 2019, when he confirmed he had already started recording the follow-up to 2018’s Scorpion.

The effort was delayed several times over the past year. It was was supposed to have been released earlier in January but was delayed due to Drake’s recovery from knee surgery.

In a sudden turn of event, Drake earlier this week revealed CLB’s drop date along with its polarising cover art designed by English artist, Damien Hirst. The cover features three rows of the pregnant lady emoji in different colours combinations.
