UPDATED 10/26, 11:00 a.m. ET: Drake rang in his birthday this year by announcing his highly anticipated next studio album, Certified Lover Boy, will be released this coming January, according to a video teaser posted on his Instagram. He also threw a party Friday night in Los Angeles, per Hollywood Life. Photos and video from the private affair made their way online, including one of what appears to be the food menu from the evening. People are having a field day with one menu option in particular: mac and cheese with raisins and capers. Weird flex, but OK?
See original story below.
Drake’s birthday is October 24th—a bit of OVO trivia I’m particularly well aware of because it also happens to be my birthday. But while Drake and I may both be Scorpios, that’s unfortunately where me and my birthday bro’s similarities end. Because when it comes to birthdays, nobody parties like Drizzy, who somehow manages to find a way outdo himself every year. (See his 30th: when his party went so hard it made John Mayer quit drinking afterwards.)
To toast the 6 God's feast day, Complex Canada pulled a birthday flex of our own, recruiting Canadian toy photographer Duane Shoots Toys to immortalize Drizzy by crafting the above diorama. (Check out the time-lapse video showing how he made it, shot on the new iPhone 12.)
We’ll have to wait and see how Aubrey Graham spends his COVID birthday, but if previous experience is any indicator, it’s going to be suitably epic, pandemic or no pandemic. In the meantime, let’s rank Drake’s biggest, most bragworthy birthday flexes to date.
