Drake’s new song arriving this week will most likely have SZA on it. The pair shared the same cover art of Halle Berry getting “slimed” at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards. It seems to indicate that both artists would be on a new song together; they even tagged one another in the post.
While Drake and SZA are both top-selling artists, they have never collaborated before. Fans believed it might have to do with the fact that they used to date but it seems as though it’s all water under the bridge now. SZA confirmed Drake’s lyrics in “Mr. Right Now” where Drake outed the fact that they were once a couple.
“Yeah, said she wanna f— to some SZA, wait/’Cause I used to date SZA back in ’08,” Drake raps.
SZA Confirms She Dated Drake
“So It was actually 2009 lol in this case a year of poetic rap license mattered lol I think he jus innocently rhymed 08 w wait . Anybody who really knows me and was around during this time can confirm.. it’s all love all peace,” she tweeted at the time.
In a follow-up tweet she added, “I just didn’t want anybody thinking anything underage or creepy was happening . Completely innocent . Lifetimes ago.”
The Certified Lover Boy teased that a new single would be arriving on his Austin tour stop earlier this week.
“I’m even going to say something tonight in Austin, Texas I haven’t said yet,” Drake said in a fan-captured video. “I know y’all excited to hear the album. I know it’s, like two weeks out. I’ma drop a song for y’all this week. Yeah, yeah. What a time, what a time. I appreciate y’all. Deeply, by the way, I do. It’s a lot of love in Texas.”
Fans originally thought that Drake would be releasing a collab with Yeat since he recently posted a photo of himself dressed as the California rapper and later called him out during a tour stop last month.
“Put the camera on this man right here, shoutout to my brother Yeat in the building too,” Drake said into the mic pointing at the section where Yeat was standing. “That’s my broski right there. Yall make some noise for Big Yeat one time.”
For All The Dogs is set to release next week.
