The first 24 hours of Certified Lover Boy have been immense. Fans worldwide stayed up all hours of the morning to make sure they were awake when Drake’s anticipated album was released, and about an hour after midnight, Certified Lover Boy was being streamed by the millions. Fans and critics have been debating Drizzy’s lyrics as they weigh which feature was the greatest, and as expected, CLB has been breaking records its first day out.
Apple Music has already revealed that the album’s 21 tracks have all taken their positions at the top of the charts, and later returned to add: “Breaking single-day records. [owl emoji],” Apple Music tweeted. “@Drake is now the most streamed artist, and #CertifiedLoverBoy is the most streamed album, in less than 24 hours on Apple Music in 2021.”
The success of the release was not enough as now Drake is feuding with Kanye to another level. He dropped the single that Kanye West dissed him on that featured Andre 3000. “I put Virgil and Drake on the same text and it wasn’t about the matching Arc’teryx or Kid Cudi dress/Just told these grown men stop it with the funny shit,” Kanye raps before adding, “Thought we was the new Abu Dhabi/Told Drake don’t play with me on GD and he sent that message to everybody/So if I hit you with a ‘WYD,’ you better hit me with, ‘Yessir, I’m writing everything you need.’”

Drake appeared to taunt Kanye West even further on Saturday morning by posting a menacing photo of himself on Instagram with the caption, “Waste Removal.”
André 3000’s opening guest verse on “Life of the Party,” meanwhile, sees the Outkast legend reflecting on the loss of his parents — a theme many fans were expecting to run deeper on Donda, which is named after Kanye’s late mother.
“Hey Miss Donda, if you ran into my mama, please tell her I said, ‘Say something’/I’m starting to believe ain’t no such thing as Heaven’s trumpets/No after-over, this is it, done/If there’s a Heaven, you would think they’d let you speak to your son,” he raps.

“Life of the Party” has already been hailed as one of the best songs from the Donda era. “That Kanye x Andre 3000 record sounding more fire than CLB and Donda albums combined… I want THAT,” rapper Emilio Rojas tweeted, while another Twitter user wrote, “Nah Andre 3000 lost his mind on that track, Kanye wildin not putting that on DONDA.”
