To announce the arrival of 'CLB', Drake seemingly interrupted a SportsCenter broadcast on Friday, August 27 morning. The show's intro was briefly stopped and a strange video of a man holding a note appeared. "CLB September 3, " was written on the paper on the screen. Reportedly, 'CLB' was originally panned for January 2021, but after sustaining a knee injury, Drake pushed back the release date of the album.
