Drake's new Certified Lover Boy album art might be the worst we have ever seen

The Dark Side of The Moon by Pink Floyd. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. Parallel Lines by Blondie. Rumours by Fleetwood Mac. What do all these have in common? An incredibly well-designed album cover. We just wish that rap megastar Drake was taking note when designing his newest album cover with none other than Damien Hirst. 

The questionable cover for 'Certified Lover Boy' was designed by controversial artist, Damien Hirst and features twelve variations of Apple's Pregnant Woman emoji. The album art was posted by Drake on his own Instagram and despite being designed by Hirst, we are seriously wondering why anyone allowed this. If you think you can design a better cover than Hirst (and we reckon you can) then check out our latest Adobe Deals.
