“It’s Finally Come”: Drake’s Mum Counts Down to Certified Lover Boy Release With Adorable Notes
Drake’s sixth studio album Certified Lover Boy debuts on Sept. 3, and Sandi Graham – aka his mum and ultimate hype woman – has reaffirmed her title as his No. 1 fan leading up to its release. As a special countdown to her son’s new project, Sandi has been sending the “In My Feelings” singer bunches of flowers and handwritten notes packed with heartwarming lyrics that are proof Drake isn’t the only talented writer in the family.
“Three more days we’re counting down / For us to hear the best / Everyone’s excited / ‘Cause you’re nothing like the rest,” Sandi wrote on a card accompanied by a bouquet of red roses in the shape of the number three. “Three more days my pookaroo / I couldn’t be more proud of you.” After sharing photos of the sweet gesture on his Instagram Stories, Drake revealed that Sandi followed up with a bunch of roses in the shape of the number two on Sept. 1, writing, “Day two is here, one more to go. We go high when they go low / Certified – it’s been quite a ride / I forever admire your relentless drive.”
The following day, the proud mama sent flowers in the shape of the number one and another bouquet in the shape of a heart. “It’s finally come / The countdown has reached one,” she wrote. “With each new album my heart skips a beat / Being your mother has been my life’s greatest treat / It’s been a long hard road together / Now there’s one more day to go / I want to celebrate you son, more than you’ll ever know. Love you more now and forever.” Take a peek at Sandi’s sweet note ahead.
