“Laugh Now Cry Later” Is a song by Canadian rapper Drake, with vocals from the American rapper Lil Durk. It was released on August 14, 2020, as the lead single from the upcoming sixth studio album Certified Lover Boy by Drake through Republic Records and OVO Sound. The video features shots of Drake participating in various athletic activities: underwater boxing, as a reference to Muhammad Ali, running on a treadmill in the sports science laboratory of Nike, and going on a shopping spree in a closed down Nike store, as well as riding jet skis from Durk and Drake.
The designer of this album cover has focused on a vintage theme, consisting of an off-white background with attached cream distressed tones placed at the right side. The main attraction would be the black and white photograph of Drake and Durk, who are both captured holding basket balls. The designer has deliberately dressed Drake posing in an oversized white suit, in order to replicate Lebron James draft day pictures, when Lebron was drafted to Cleveland on June 26th, 2003. The photograph is finished with a black edging boarder around it, creating a stark contrast with the lighter colour tones. In terms of the font that is placed over the album, the designer has continued with their vintage theme, using a black handwritten calligraphy placed in two different font sizes.
Overall, I think drake is an amazing artist in the music industry, who has an extremely talented designer team alongside him, that create such album covers that have much thought behind them.
