Drake’s Mystery Woman In Alternate ‘CLB’ Album Cover Photo Identified

Drake’s Mystery Woman In Alternate ‘CLB’ Album Cover Photo Identified

Has the certified model in Drake’s alternate cover photos been identified?

Drake’s newest album, ‘Certified Lover Boy,‘ was released on September 3, 2021, with an emoji artwork cover created by Damien Hirst. 

Since the album’s release, the Candian-born rapper has continued promoting the album with fan repost and most recently, releasing alternate covers for ‘CLB.’

In one photo, in particular, fans immediately took notice of Drake being embraced by an unidentified model, which many assumed was his rumored girlfriend, Johanna Leia. However, it is now confirmed that she is not Johanna.

Following online speculation, the woman in the unused photo has been identified as Hayley Karrina, also known as HK, the founder, and designer of MDRN FORM, a swimwear line for multi-proportioned women.

HK, who was also raised in Toronto, reposted the photo yesterday (9/13) with the caption, ‘Certified,’ confirming that she was the woman in the photo.

Many fans did assume it was Johanna Leia, as she and Drake have allegedly been dating since earlier this year. Back in August, Drake reportedly gifted her son, Amari Baileya diamond-encrusted number 10 chain, Bailey’s current basketball jersey number.

At this time there is no indication of the relationship between Drake and Hayley.

Drake recently made history with ‘CLB‘ having nine songs on Billboards Top 10. Leading the way is ‘Way 2 Sexy,‘ which features Future and Young Thug.

Additionally, all of his songs from Certified Lover Boy are in the top 40.
