“Hotline Bling” singer Drake, together with his record label OVO Records, shared a video teaser for the upcoming album “Certified Lover Boy” on Twitter.

According to Variety, the Toronto-born rapper released a short teaser on Saturday, the same date to his 34th birthday with the caption confirming that the name of the album is “Certified Lover Boy” and the release date in January 2021.

Within the short clip, a young boy — presumably a version of Drake himself — looks up into a spotlight shining down on him as a hazy instrumental plays. The teaser then shows short recreations of the artwork for Drake’s previous releases, including “Take Care,” “Nothing Was the Same” and “Dark Lane Demo Tapes.”  A noticeable difference is that Drake has a heart shaved into his hairline, most likely in reference to the new album’s title.

At the end of the teaser, a drone shot pans over a lit stadium, showing the letters “CLB” embossed with roses. It fades to black after “January 2021” appears on the screen, written in yellow.

This is Drake’s 6th studio album and his follow-up to his 2018 release ‘”Scorpion.”
