— NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) September 7, 2021
The 6-God will be linking with the network to create a list of songs that would be played during the NFL season at pre-game shows, live telecasts, and in promotional clips. Of course, ‘Certified Lover Boy’ will be included on this list along with other new music from other artists.
There will be a total of 10 games throughout the upcoming season that will showcase Drake’s selection of music.
“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?” Emeka Ofodile, VP sports marketing at ESPN, shared in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited for this upcoming collaboration. 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.”
