Sinthia Hoque:-After delaying the release of his upcoming album, “Certified Lover Boy”, Drake has released three new songs as part of his Scary Hours 2 EP in one which, he pays tribute to former Toronto Raptor Star, DeMar DeRozan.
In the video for “What’s Next”, the born Torontonian rapper shows off some of the most iconic spots in the city, which included the CN Tower, appearance at Yonge-Dundas Square during a snowstorm, doing donuts at the airport, riding an empty TTC Subway and even rapping underwater at the Ripley’s Aquarium.
A spokesperson for TTC, Stuart Green also shared a video captioned, “Drake is a real people like the rest of us, riding the rocket and all in his new video…”
In case of any complaints or concerns about the shoot, Green promptly added, “And because someone will take issue, this was shot Tuesday evening on a rented and closed set (Bay Lower), COVID-19 protocols followed”.
Drake took to Instagram to pay tribute to the former Raptors star, DeRezon, who wanted to retire after spending nine seasons in Toronto before he was traded to the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.
In his tribute post, Drake captioned, “To my brother @demar_derozan I want to say 10 million thank you’s on behalf of YOUR city. You are a fixture in Toronto forever and you gave everything you had. Through your leadership we had the most exciting years in franchise history. I am grateful to have witnessed your combination of skill, persistence, and loyalty from the same seats every night. Thank you for being an incredible captain and an even better friend.”
Though the album , “Certified Lover Boy” was set to release in January, Drake had to push back the date due to undergoing knee surgery. “I’m blessed to be back on my feet feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t be dropping in January. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in 2021,” he wrote in on his Instagram Story.
