Drake, real name Aubrey Drake Graham, has been sporting the hairstyle since announcing the upcoming release of his sixth studio album, a release date for which is yet to be confirmed.

The record initially was initially scheduled to drop in January 2021, but was delayed after Drake sustained an injury to his leg. The rapper has since teased that CLB will be dropping before the end of summer.

Drizzy recently claimed that the record complete and currently in the mixing stage. Its lead single, 'Laugh Now Cry Later', dropped in August last year.
