Drake's New Album 'Certified Lover Boy' Has A Trudeau Reference & We Need A Collab ASAP

If you didn't know Drake's new album, Certified Lover Boy, dropped today, you might be the only one in the country who didn't — and that includes Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, too.

The rapper dropped the 21-track project on September 3 and Drake made no effort to hide his Canadian-ness for this one, naming one of his songs after his Toronto neighbourhood and even namedropping the PM in the lyrics.

"Thеre's a mad shortage of peoplе giving me kudos, I been doing this since T-Pain was pouring us Nuvo," Drake raps on "7am On Bridle Path," the album's 14th song. "You tell them I run the country, they'll say 'True though.'"

Pronounced like "Trudeau," the clever bit of wordplay isn't the first time a rapper has name-dropped the prime minister in a song, but it's definitely his most high-profile one.

Could this open the door to a Trudeau and Drake collab? We already know the Prime Minister has got some chops, albeit unintentionally; a remix of Trudeau saying "speaking moistly" went viral in 2020 and became one of Canada's top trending videos of the year.
