Drake addresses romance with SZA in new 21 Savage track
Written by Rother Radio News on 04/10/2020
Drake has opened up about his romance with singer SZA in a new 21 Savage collaboration.
The Canadian rap star has revealed he dated the singer in 2008 in his lyrics for Mr. Right Now, which dropped on Thursday.
In the song, Drake raps about the casual romance, stating: “I used to date SZA back in ’08/If you cool with it, baby, she can still play/While I jump inside that box and have a field day.”
It does not appear the Hit Different hitmaker enjoyed being referenced in the track, with multiple outlets claiming she unfollowed Drake on Instagram shortly after Mr. Right Now was released.
This isn’t the first time Drake has referred to his romance with the singer in a song – he also rapped about their old relationship on his 2018 tune Diplomatic Immunity, calling attention to SZA, real name Solana Imani Rowe, by dropping her first name.
“I just pulled up on Solana show, the girl’s a natural/I knew her way back when Hollywood was international/Yeah, the furthest I’ve been, that’s word to my ends/Word to the flags that belong in the hood of my Benz,” he rapped on the track.
SZA has not spoken publicly about her alleged romantic relationship with Drake.
