Drake came out with his album ‘Certified Lover Boy’ and fans have been going all crazy. It should not come as a shock, as Drake is one of the stars who we expect to deliver. However, fans have also taken it as a reigniting of a rivalry between him and Kanye. This comes because Drake released his album only a few days after Kanye put up ‘Donda’ to the world.

With his relationship with NBA players, they have been quick to show love to ‘Champagne Papi’ on his new album. Big names such as LeBron James and Kevin Durant have come out on Twitter to tweet about it.

Drake Receives Love From the NBA

LeBron and Durant were only a few of the NBA players who reacted. However, while most reactions are positive, one NBA star addressed the prior beef between Drake and Kanye.

 

LeBron, Durant, and Bradley Beal took to Twitter and put out an owl emoji. This is significant of Drake’s label ‘October’s Very Own’. Clearly, Drake did things right yet again as he released his first album since 2019. Moreover, this album has some big names on it too.

Artists such as Travis Scott and Lil Wayne are featured in ‘Champagne Papi’s’ new album. 20 YO RJ Hampton was already on the hype when he saw that Lil Wayne was a part of ‘Certified Lover Boy’. But, not everyone looked at the bright side.

The former NBA player, Nick Young, took the release of ‘Certified Lover Boy’ as a competitive move against Kanye West. Young believes that Drake would never have put out ‘Certified Lover Boy’ if Kanye was in his music prime right now. While that stays as an argument, it seems like Drake continues to take everyone by surprise and go big.
