Did Drake and SZA Date?
For someone as high profile as Drake, it’s very challenging for him to keep his personal life under wraps. From video models and dancers to musicians and sports legends, we’ve pretty much known every single woman the Toronto-born rapper has been linked to.
However, the “Toosie Slide” rapper just made a stunning revelation about his relationship with SZA that we never saw coming.
Inside Drake’s dating history
As far as we know, Drake is currently single. However, has dated a number of women over the course of his career. He had an on-again,-off-again relationship with Rihanna, and he was also briefly linked to Jennifer Lopez, Tyra Banks, and Serena Williams.
The 33-year-old rapper was seen flirting with Kylie Jenner last year amid her breakup with Travis Scott. He also shares a 3-year-old son, Adonis with French painter and model, Sophie Brussaux.
However, his connection to SZA was something he’d kept under wraps until now.
Drake and SZA dated back in 2008
Though they are both mega-talented artists with their own unique sound, no one knew that rapper Drake and R&B singer SZA were actually an item some time ago. The pair have never been linked romantically, therefore, fans were stunned when the “Nice For What” rapper got candid about their relationship in a new song.
In his feature on 21 Savage’s new song, “Mr. Right Now” Drake got chatty about his time with SZA and how he’s still in love with the CTRL singer’s music. He raps,
Turn your phone off, take your clothes off/I’m a sav’, but I f*** her to a slow song/Yeah, said she wanna f*** to some SZA, wait/’Cause I used to date SZA back in ’08/ If you cool with it, baby, she can still play.
It should be noted that Drake and SZA dated just before his 2009 mixtape So Far Gone, exploded and he became the musical success that we know him as today. Back then, he was most known for his role as Jimmy on Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Inside SZA and Drake’s relationship today
Though SZA has not directly responded to Drake’s revelation about their past relationship, she did unfollow him on Instagram. She also posted a meme to her Instagram stories about people in her business. This comes after the “Drew Barrymore” singer debuted the stunning and self-directed music video for her most recent single, “Hit Different” Drake was quick to give her all of the praise and glory.
Using SZA’s given name, Solána, the POPSTAR rapper, took a screenshot from the music video and shared it to his Instagram stories writing, “Solana is the [chef’s] kiss.”
Since “Hit Different” is about an intoxicating relationship, we wonder if it’s about Drake and SZA’s time together. On the song, the singer croons,
I was into you from the beginning even if you wasn’t mine/ Scared to admit my shortcomings led to overdraft in this affair, declining/ Quicker than we started, evidence we misaligned/ Man, I get more in love with you each argument/ Somethin’ wrong with me, I like the way you screw your face up
