Kanye West or Drake, who will drop album first? Fans want 'Donda' and 'CLB' at ‘same time’
Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ and Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’ are two of the most-awaited albums of 2021 and it’s already August but fans still haven’t heard any news on the official release date of the two. Both the hip-hop heavyweights have been teasing their fans continuously and creating the hype. In a nutshell, they are doing everything but dropping the album.
Kanye West and Drake were heavily trending on Twitter after the latter teased his sixth album project with the help of basketball superstar LeBron James on Instagram. Fans now want both West and Drake to drop the album on the same day with an intention to create a ruckus on the charts. For the unversed, West has already disappointed his fans twice while Drake is taking his time to release his latest project.
Kanye West or Drake, who will drop their album first?
While Drake has been really subtle when it comes to teasing fans with his highly anticipated project ‘Certified Lover Boy’ also stylized as 'CLB', Kanye West has already held two mega listening events of ‘Donda’ at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Thanks to the listening, we now know about the artists getting featured on ‘Donda’. Artists like Don Toliver, Young Thug, Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, Jay Electronica, The Weeknd, Roddy Ricch, Jay-Z, Kid Cudi and a few others have been tapped for their respective guest verses. A song called ‘Hurricane’ featuring Lil Baby and The Weeknd is also expected to hit the leading streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music soon. After failing to release ‘Donda’ on July 23 and August 5-6, the 44-year-old hip-hop icon will now probably release the album on August 15.
Speaking of Drake, the multi-platinum rapper is going real slow with the release of ‘CLB’. The 34-year-old hip-hop biggie had earlier revealed that he will drop the album by the end of the summer. The album also created hype when a video snippet of Drake and Future filming a music video got leaked on the Internet. A few theories are also doing the rounds on the Internet claiming West is deliberately pushing the release date in order to clash with Drake. Kanye West is apparently planning for a showdown like he did with 50 Cent back in 2007 and ended up taking the throne. West’s ‘Graduation’ and 50’s ‘Curtis’ were released on the same day where the former easily took over the album sales. But we must also tell you the long-standing beef between West and Drake no longer exists as it is rumored that the two are back to being friends.
‘Let’s have Kanye and Drake drop on the same day’
Hip-hop fans have been waiting impatiently for more than year for both ‘Donda’ and ‘CLB’ and as now Kanye West’s album’s apparent release date is coming closer, they rushed to Twitter to troll both the rappers. One fan posted, “Let’s have Kanye and Drake drop on the same day. All these delays. Let’s see who comes out on top.” Another shared, “They talking bout Kanye and Drake dropping s**t at the same time… idc what’s going on I just know that will be a good day.”
One user tweeted, “Kanye and Drake should just drop their albums at the same time and let the people run to whichever one they want”, while another added, “Kanye and Drake better choose their release dates wisely cause Beyoncé is on the way.” One user claimed, “Kanye and Drake really tryna see who the King of this s**t, y’all saying Drake outselling ,but something tells me it’s finna be different this year.” Meanwhile, one fan shared, “Kanye and Drake teasing the dates and not dropping the album yet lmao.” And, another user concluded with a theory saying, “Drake would sell more but Kanye’s album will be better, people like Kanye and drake but more people hate Kanye.”
