Following the release of Certified Lover Boy, Drake has another music accomplishment on the horizon. The ‘Champagne Papi’ is teaming up with ESPN to curate music for select Monday Night Football games throughout the entire NFL season.
The music will be a combination of Drake’s most recent releases, potentially some classics, as well as new music from other artists he identifies; all of which will run in Monday Night Football promotional spots, live telecasts and pre-game shows for ten games this season, starting this week.
“Now we are here…the kickoff of the football season. And who better to curate music for Monday Night Football than Drake who sits firmly at the intersection of music and sports. We couldn’t be more excited for this upcoming collaboration,” said Emeka Ofodile, Vice President of Sports Marketing, ESPN. “The music curator role has been a big hit with our fans with Diplo and DJ Khaled in previous years….and this season, we will be living inside the moment with Drake as our NFL on ESPN soundtrack.”
Prior to ESPN’s announcement, Drake creatively revealed the release date for Certified Lover Boy during a spot on SportsCenter. Now we see this was the beginning of a much larger partnership.
