Car is humming?

So around two-three months ago, I got a three inch nail embedded in my tire. It seems like I've been at the shop every week since then. One of the things I started to notice right around that time was my car started to sound well, loud. As my father described it, "your car sounds like the millennium falcon!" There's a pretty loud humming that only gets worse with acceleration, I really sound like I belong in a Star Wars movie. I had my front passenger wheel bearing replaced yesterday, assuming it would stop the humming, but no luck. However it does seem to be a little less obnoxious. Any idea why it could still be making that noise?

is the "humming is coming from the front or the rear of the car? Does it get louder only when driving or is it also when you're parked and you rev the engine? Does it sound like a hummm or a vacuum-like-sucking or a vibration noise?

Hi, sorry, just saw this

The humming is definitely coming from the passenger side and I believe it's the front. It gets louder with acceleration, seems to be loudest at around 55mph. Today I noticed there was grease on my front passenger wheel rim which is the one we just replaced the wheel bearing on. I also heard my car click when turning out of the parking lot today. Safe to say my CV Joint needs to be looked it.

Is it possible the CV Joint was causing the noise this whole time?

The sound is pretty similar to this, it's annoying and loud. But I replaced what the shop told me was the bad wheel bearing so I don't understand why the noise is still around.
