Drake seemingly dissed his former fling, Rihanna and her current love interest A$AP Rocky, in a song from his new album.
The Canadian rapper released song, Fear of Heights, in his eighth audio album, For All the Dogs, on Friday.
The name of the song added more weight to the speculations that it is a direct attack at the Barbadian singer, 35, owing to her public fear of heights.
Drake, 36, who had an intermittent relationship with the Only Girl vocalist from 2005 to 2016, left no stones unturned in expressing his feelings.
In the lyrics, the Rich Flex singer referred to their past relationship and took shots at Rihanna’s current romance.
“Why they make it sound like I’m still hung up on you? / That could never be / Gyal can’t ruin me / Better him than me / Better it’s not me.”
He then turned upon Diamond vocalist's relationship with Rocky, “Yeah, that man, he still with you, he can't leave you. Y'all go on vacation, I bet it's Antilles.”
The Nonstop singer didn’t stop there and even made a reference to RiRi’s Anti album and its Sex With Me song, “I’m anti, I’m anti / Yeah, and the sex was average with you / Yeah, I’m anti ’cause I had it with you … / And I had way badder b****** than you, TBH.”
Fans from both sides were quick to react, notably, many were far from pleased with One Dance hitmaker attempt alluding old emotions and throwing shade at Umbrella songstress.
One fan on X, formerly Twitter, expressed his disappointment, stating, “Drake rapping about Rihanna in 2023 and sounding as mature as he did in 2013 is as disappointing as it is predictable.”
Another fan came to Rihanna’s defense and humorously shared, “Drake dissed Rihanna’ my baby she is somewhere changing diapers for the 20th time this morning… that lady does not gaf lmfao.”
