Drake’s new album, Certified Lover Boy, offers professionally crafted rap and R&B, but some of the songs are just average.

When listening to Certified Lover Boy, fans can vibe, listen to Drake’s bars, or get pumped up. Drake teams up with many good artists on the record, such as Lil Baby, Future, Young Thug, 21 Savage, and Project Pat.

One of the better songs, “TSU,” displays Drake’s lyrical talents and his vocal abilities. Drake dedicates this song to the support of a friend, which will help make this song a fan favorite.

The first half of the song “N 2 Deep” is not as good as the second half. The second part carries the song because the beat is good and the feature from Future is also acceptable.

“Knife Talk,” with features from 21 Savage and Project Pat, is a song that can get listeners pumped up. Drake’s lines are decent, but nothing compared to 21 Savage’s lines.

The last acceptable song is “Champagne Poetry,” which is a chill and relaxing song.

The rest of the songs are either not good or are just nothing special compared to any of the other hits that Drake has created.

The meaning behind some songs may get listeners to support him. But while Certified Lover Boy is worth listening to, listeners should not be surprised at how average most of the songs really are.
