Monday Night Football just got even more exciting!
This NFL season, Drake is collaborating with ESPN to curate music for 10 Monday Night Football games. The music will include some of Drake’s latest bops — from his newly released sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy — his classics, and some jams from other artists selected by Drake.
“Now we are here, the kickoff of the football season and who better to curate music for Monday Night Football than Drake who sits firmly at the intersection of music and sports?” Emeka Ofodile, vp sports marketing at ESPN, said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited for this upcoming collaboration. The music curator role has been a big hit with our fans with Diplo and DJ Khaled in previous years and this season, we will be living inside the moment with Drake as our NFL on ESPN soundtrack.”
Drake’s new NFL music gig comes following the arrival of Certified Lover Boy. The new album — which features Lil Baby, Travis Scott and many more — now holds the record for most streamed album in 24 hours in Apple Music History. Certified Lover Boy also helped Drake top his own all-time record for single-day streams on Spotify. His previous album, Scorpion (2018), was the previous record-holder with 132 million single-day streams.
Through the years, Drake has released 45 top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits.
