OVO Sound boss Drake’s go-to producer Noah “40” Shebib knows Certified Lover Boy was not an overnight concept. The hip-hop hitmaker has shared a sneak peek into just how much work went into crafting the must-hear studio effort.
Noah ’40’ Shebib Shows CLB Blueprint
40 hit up his Instagram page to share a slideshow of moments from the album’s making. Shebib also shared some heartfelt words about the overall process of putting out the LP to the masses with a major salute to Drake.
“Thank you to everyone and anyone who was a part of this project. It’s always a pleasure and I’m just happy to be on the journey with you all. @champagnepapi thank you for letting me be a part of your vision nothing makes me happier in this world then to see it come to fruition. Congratulations my friend ❤️🙏🏼”
Shebib also shared another post personally sharing the nitty gritty details of the numbers in his slides.
“Ok after these last few… (see last slide) … Also… don’t watch the numbers on my little graph table 😆 I was trying to explain about samples and digital audio and how in math class you would have to chart out and draw parabolas and all that and was just trying to draw a picture of a graph. Anyways, the numbers don’t make any sense. Maybe I’m the only one that cared but lord.. that was bothering me 😆🙃”
Drake’s ‘CLB’ Is Breaking Spotify Records
The 6 God’s Certified Lover Boy is doing big things in its first 24 hours. The hip-hop star’s latest studio effort is sitting pretty as streaming giant Spotify’s most-streamed single day album – ever.
The Toronto native went to his Instagram page to share the massive accomplishment. Drake shared a billboard snapshot showing the project’s success on the top streaming platform in the game.
The billboard reads: “Certified Record Breaker: On 9/3/21, CLB became Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day. Congrats, Drake”
Rather than get emotional or overhyped, Drizzy kept things simple with a single emoji.
Birdman Calls Drake’s New Album A Classic
Cash Money Records boss Birdman knows greatness when he hears it. The hip-hop veteran has stepped up to give Drake his flowers after putting out a must-hear Certified Lover Boy album.
Baby hit up his social media pages to show major love and attention to the 6 God. Along with reposting the project’s cover art, the Cash Money boss put the LP in rare territory.
“@champagnepapi classic🦅 YMCMBEAST #OVO #RG”
Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot Salutes Drake’s ‘CLB’
Chicago’s Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot might be supportive of rap star Kanye West‘s Donda album but this week she’s completely riding with Certified Lover Boy wave. The 56th mayor of Chi-Town has shown a major salute to Ye’s rap rival Drake in celebration of his new studio album.
Lightfoot’s Twitter page lit up Friday with a huge shout-out to the 6 God. She used the theme of Drake’s cover art to playfully plug her own financial agenda.
“CERTIFIED BUDGET SEASON 💰 1. What is the City Budget? 2. What is the City Budget Gap? 3. What’s next in the City Budget process? 4. How does the City Budget impact me?”
Social media didn’t have the same sense of humor as Lightfoot though. People had mixed feelings about the mayor using CLB as an opportunity to talk politics.
“Does this mean you’re multiplying as rapidly as the lethal virus you’re allowing to spread across the city?”
“Your social media team has to know you’re going to get roasted for things like this …”
“I’m pretty sure they have no clue how the internet works.”
