While Toronto’s hometown hero Drake remains a commercial Thanos, his Certified Lover Boy layover Scary Hours 2 does exude a certain amount of winner’s fatigue. The sequel to his 2018 two-pack ranges from “just OK, I guess” to “pretty damn impressive” -- in a smooth 3-song sonic gradient. He placed the most stock in the Supah Mario and Maneesh-produced “What’s Next,” a boastful bop that could be considered great for anyone else, but for Drizzy, it feels like auto-pilot.
