Twitter has emotions about how lousy Drake’s new suspected album include artwork is.
On Monday, the rapper wrote on Instagram that his new album, “Certified Lover Boy,” will drop this Friday, adding to the post an image he tagged artist Damien Hirst in. Several supporters are hoping the alleged album art is only a teaser, though, as Hirst’s grid of 12 multiracial expecting-woman emojis in varyingly colored T-shirts is proving significantly less than inspirational.
“You paid Damien Hirst to place 12 pregnant emoji women of all ages as your album cover?” 1 disappointed viewer asked.
“Drake evidently commissioned Damien Hirst for this abomination,” commented a different.
Some others tried out to give the 34-year-outdated songwriter the gain of the doubt and attempt to go through further meaning into the minimalist digital artwork.
“Drake is dropping Licensed Lover Boy, an album about really like (little one generating) 9 months immediately after the envisioned launch day, (9 months is a comprehensive-term being pregnant), on LABOR day weekend. (labor as in supplying beginning) which is why there are pregnant emojis on the go over,” one viral concept posited.
Lil Nas X utilized the controversy as an prospect to troll Drake, submitting a teaser for his album “Montero” featuring a grid expecting male emojis as the album art. The NBA also hopped aboard the Drake trolling wagon, as did Trevor Noah and “The Each day Clearly show.”
Artwork publication Hyperallergic identified as the artwork a “deludedly self-referential tribute to Hirst’s career” that simultaneously claims “next to very little about Drake’s songs or his prolonged-predicted album.”
Tunes information web site The Fader named the artwork “hilarious” and “ridiculous, but also very Drake.”
