Drake Denied Copyright For Upcoming Album, ‘Certified Lover Boy’

Drake just took a massive L.

The Canadian rapper, famous for hits like “Nice For What” and “One Dance,” is now going to have to dance around some legal questions after his request to copyright the name of his upcoming album was refused.

The self-proclaimed 6 God had already announced the title of his album, set to be called “Certified Lover Boy,” but per Complex, the legal teams have had trouble with it. U.S. Patent Laws would point to a “likelihood of confusion” if the request were approved.

So, who is Drake potentially confusing himself with? Turns out, the strife in this copyright attempt is coming from a fellow group of Canadians, the rock band Loverboy. Known for a song called “Workin’ for the Weekend,” it’s hard to imagine that someone would confuse the one-hit wonders with one of the most-streamed rappers of all time.

And yet here we are. Drizzy doesn’t have the copyright to an album name that’s already been revealed. Poor guy.

It doesn’t look like the news has fazed him, though. Clearly, Drake has been hitting the gym and taking some pics to prove it! Check those abs out…
