After being postponed for knee surgeries and final touches, Drake’s long-awaited sixth studio album Certified Lover Boy finally arrived at 1 a.m. eastern today Friday (Sept. 3). Despite the odd release time, The Boy has had fans in a chokehold all week with his dramatic yet clever rollout of billboards which announced the album’s featured artists in each of their respective cities.

For CLB’s description on Apple Music, Drake dubbed it “a combination of toxic masculinity and acceptance of truth which is inevitably heartbreaking.” With this being said, Billboard highlighted some of the lover boy’s most chest-puffed and on-brand lines from the album.

“Champagne Poetry”

“And nothin’ tell the truth like the eyes will/ lived so much for others don’t remember how I feel”

“I don’t have to second-guess nothing with no one I love/ ‘Bout to build a second guest house ’cause we growing too much”

“Windows of opportunity let me go through the doors/ This the part where I don’t ever say ‘pardon me’ anymore/ This the part where I’ma find a new part of me to explore”

“In the Bible”

“You don’t know love, you don’t love me like my child”

“Love All”

“People never care ’til it’s R.I.P.” 

“Lotta fallin’ outs help me build foundation”

“Grab the top spot like “pardon my reach’”

“Fair Trade”

“I gotta be single for a while, you can’t control me”

“Imitation isn’t flattery, it’s just annoyin’ me”

And the dirt that they threw on my name/ Turned to soil and I grew up out it”

“I’ve been losin’ friends and findin’ peace/ But honestly that sound like a fair trade to me”

“You know that it’s somethin’ when I sing about it, yeah”

“Way 2 Sexy”

“Pipe Down”

“Said you belong to the streets but the streets belong to me”

“You know I love you more than all them n—as put together/ And it’s a lot of n—as’ trust, I put the list together”

“You could never tell nobody that you held me down/ If it was ride or die then you should’ve been dead right now”

“Why does your ex think we beefin’, is that man alright?/ That n—a can’t even look at me, he fell off twice”

“No Friends in the Industry”

“Why they always act like we can fix it with a meeting?/ All that linking up, man, I’ma see ya when I see ya”

“When I signed my first deal, that shit came through a fax/ That should let you know how long I been out here runnin’ laps”

“Knife Talk” 

“Checked the weather and it’s gettin’ real oppy outside”

“7am on Bridle Path”

The entire song.

“Race My Mind”

“Picture me carin’ what n—as sayin’ on Wi-Fi they don’t pay for”

“The Remorse”

“I can’t even hear myself when I get quiet time”

“From the bottom to the top, man, what’s it like in the middle?/ From the lemon-faced radio host that love to be bitter/ To my dogs in the game who wasn’t pick of the litter/ For the young Gs out here starting from the beginning/ Nobody praying for you when you winning, don’t forget it”
