Drake dishes out first single from forthcoming LP, ‘Certified Lover Boy’ [Watch]
Call him “Drake,” or call him “certified lover boy,” either way you’re not wrong, and the Certified Lover Boy album rollout will assuredly continue as the Canadian fixture paves his path to the Billboard 200 chart with the first single from the forthcoming LP, “Laugh Now Cry Later.” Following a contained freestyle, a pocket of DJ Khaled-assisted singles and the opportune Dark Lane Demo Tapes, which dispelled listeners’ quarantine quietude, the lead cut features Lil Durk and comes with an accompanying video.
A laid back, fluid verbal jaunt that flexes Drake’s nonchalant delivery chops, “Laugh Now Cry Later” feels a lot like the 6 God’s next hit, and Lil Durk’s verse congruously fits in, adding tasteful inflection. With ascendant background chords that loosely resemble the horns on Champagne’s earlier staple, “Trophies,” “Laugh Now Cry Later” seems a more mature form of Drake’s earlier aesthetic that seasoned listeners are sure to notice. Watch the official visual below.
