Barring any unexpected delays, Drake is finally set to release his album Certified Lover Boy on Friday, September 3rd, and he's just revealed the cover art - which is certainly getting people's attention.
Taking to social media, he shared the cover art, which features 12 pregnant women emojis. It's probably not what fans were expecting, given his previous album covers, but people were quick to poke some fun at the cover.
The cover art was reportedly designed by British contemporary artist Damien Hirst, mimicking his iconographic spot paintings. Instagram account @Drakerelated posted the artwork with the caption "1 of 2 by Damien Hirst", which suggests that it might not be the only version of the cover.
We've put together some of our favourite reactions to the cover so far, because when the Internet gets going, there's no stopping them. If Drake was hoping that the cover would become a meme, it certainly worked.
As an Android user, this one feels personal.
