Ah, Drake: Everyone’s favorite emotional rapper.
It has never been a cooler time to be an emotional music listener. Did you ever think that you would ever shed a tear while listening to rap when you were younger? I certainly didn’t.
In short, whatever Drake is feeling, you’re certainly feeling. Feeling elated in the morning? Drake has a song for that. Inconsolably miserable by the early afternoon? Drake has you covered, too. Need to get pumped up in the evening? Need I say more?
Regardless, the man is a talented musician, but like with all celebrities, most people are hopelessly fascinated with his love life and who he is currently dating. Drake is the ever-elusive rap good boy – and many women would fall over themselves to be with them. Only a select few have ever been so lucky to call them man theirs.
No, you’re not on the list (and I’m sorry).
