Since Drake’s debut album Thank Me Later leaked last week, one of the most-talked-about tracks is its opening song, “Fireworks,” where he reveals a brief relationship with pop star Rihanna.
If you’re up on your gossip, over a year ago, the rapper and RiRi were spotted at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge in New York, where they were rumored to have spent the evening making out. From there, they were rumored to be dating. However, neither publicly confirmed any relationship. That is, until now, because Drizzy lets it all out in the song.
“I could tell it wasn’t love, I just thought you’d f*** with me / Who could’ve predicted Lucky Strike would have you stuck with me,” Drake spits on “Fireworks.” “Damn / I kept my wits about me luckily, what happened between us that night, it always seems to trouble me / Now all of a sudden these gossip rags wanna cover me, and you makin’ it seem like it happened that way because of me / But I was curious, and I’ll never forget it baby, what an experience / You could’ve been the one, but it wasn’t that serious.”
In a recent interview with the NY Times, Drake explained what happened between the couple.
“I was a pawn,” he told the paper. “You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, ‘Wow, this feels terrible.’ ”
Apparently Drake wrote a song for Rihanna, but it was never released.
Damn, like that Drake?
