Drake’s “Nice For What” is a smash hit in more ways than one. The Toronto rapper recently shared behind-the-scenes clips from the song’s music video, showing himself smoothly gliding on skates before hitting the floor.
“At least you fell on beat broski,” commented a fan.
The video, which Drake posted earlier this week, already has over five million views. Captioned “Director’s Cut” with a crying emoji, the short clip shows the rapper skating in a blue puffer jacket before slipping on what looks to be a wet floor.
“Nice For What” plays in the background, giving fans a glimpse of the track’s unreleased video footage.
“You need skating lessons from weezy,” a fan joked on Instagram. “I shouldn’t be laughing so hard, but Gooodddd daaaammmmnnn!!” added another.
It seems that Champagne Papi isn’t only falling physically but emotionally as well. According to reports, 6 God Drizzy Drake has a girlfriend.
The Sun says the “God’s Plan” rapper caught feelings for English singer Raye — the first person he’s publicaly dated since Jennifer Lopez — after “some late-night studio sessions.” “And the Canadian has been wining and dining her in one of London’s swankiest restaurants,” the outlet alleges.
The Sun‘s source revealed that Raye “is a massive fan of Drake’s work,” which led her to send him some of her music on Twitter. “He was clearly impressed by her songwriting talents and when they met to record, it quickly became obvious it wasn’t just her music he was interested in,” the insider continued.
They went on to say that though the relationship is still in its early stages, the duo has “already been out on a string of dates.” Drake is said to have taken Raye to his “favorite” spot in central London, Nobo Berkeley.
More than that, the source says Drake popped up at performance Raye did for a party at London’s new Lost Rivers Leake Street. Despite the attention though, Raye is reportedly not allowing herself to get too hyped up about it.
“He’s got form for dating the hottest and most up-and-coming stars in the world so Raye isn’t reading too much into it, they’re just having fun at the moment,” the source concluded. Proving the source’s point… At the beginning of the year, Drake was spotted trying to put the moves on Issa Rae.
While Drake killed it on the ones and twos at Netflix’s Golden Globes after party, it seemed as though he didn’t impress a certain starlet enough beforehand. Insecure actress Issa Rae allegedly turned the rapper down when he approached her after the infamous award ceremony.
E! News‘ sources offered mixed recollections of the stars’ interaction, but they all ended up with Issa walking away from Champagne Papi.
Drake — who attended the 75th annual Golden Globes Awards on the strength of his hand in Netflix’s Top Boy — was spotted approaching Issa Rae shortly after the annual ceremony ended. According to one of E!‘s insiders, the rapper “made his whole group stop so he could go talk to her.”
The source revealed that Drake invited the Insecure star to the Netflix bash he was heading to before she politely declined. “‘Thanks, but no thanks!’” the source claimed Issa replied. They went on to say that Drake, simply put, “got denied.”
