Juice WRLD fans received a pleasant surprise while listening to Drake’s newest studio album Certified Lover Boy.
On the Drizzy and Kid Cudi collaboration track “IMY2,” a clip from a 2019 interview Juice conducted with Montreality was featured in the beginning of the song. The late rapper could be heard saying, “I think that’s what life is about. Truly finding yourself. And then closing your eyes and dying in your sleep.”
The interview that was referenced took place just four months before the “Lucid Dreams” rapper died of an accidental overdose. However, fans were excited to hear his voice on the long-awaited album.
“Shoutout to @Drake for putting @JuiceWorlddd vocals on his album #drake #CertifiedLoverBoy #Juicewrld #music #hiphop,” tweeted @SZNshort.
“Drake and Cudi finally ended their beef,” tweeted @Discussion1Rap. “Drake also decides to sample Juice WRLD. Juice was mentioned in DONDA and now sampled in CLB. He definitely smiling up in Heaven.”

Juice WRLD isn’t the only feature fans were excited about. They were also thrilled to see Lil Baby and JAY-Z on the project — especially since they were both featured on Kanye West’s Donda album. Artists such as Young Thug, 21 Savage, Project Pat, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Ty Dolla Sign, Future, Tems, Yebba, Giveon, Lil Durk and Travis Scott also made appearances on Certified Lover Boy.
