Is Lizzo dating Drake? Here's why singer name-dropped rapper on ‘Rumors’
Male rappers openly express their desire to sleep with women in their songs and some of them do not even shy to name-drop the celebrities and with an intention to turn the tables, Lizzo name-dropped hip-hop heavyweight Drake as she rapped about him in her comeback single called ‘Rumors’ featuring Cardi B.
The 33-year-old crooner raised a lot of eyebrows when she spoke about “f**king Drake” in the song, but does that mean she really wants to sleep with Drake? Well, after causing quite a storm on Twitter, the ‘Truth Hurts’ hitmaker sat for an interview with Apple Music host Zane Lowe and revealed that she just wanted to give society a taste of its own medicine. For the unversed, ‘Rumors’ is Lizzo’s first song in two years.

Speaking to Lowe in the latest interview, Lizzo spilled the beans on her much-discussed line on the song. “I just thought it would be so funny to say” adding, “I have a small relationship with him. He’s very cool.” She further asserted, “I just feel like women, there’s so many times where girls’ names get dropped in songs because they’re fine.” She also said that rappers have often done this in music while citing an example of Biggie's hit single ‘Dreams’. While name-dropping the Toronto icon, Lizzo croons on ‘Rumors’, “"Last year, I thought I would losе it /Readin' s**t on the internet /My smoothie cleanse and my diet /No, I ain't f**k Drake yet (Ha)."
Talking about the song, the Greek-mythology-inspired video got the Internet abuzz as it also featured a heavily pregnant Cardi B. Within, hours of its release, ‘Rumors’ peaked at number two on the US streaming charts. Lizzo celebrated the news by twerking in a public park while jamming with two musicians which caused another controversy. She shared a short video on Instagram and captioned it as, “MOOD — IM DRIVING AROUND (SAFELY) CELEBRATING ‘RUMORS’!! IF U SEE ME, SAY HI! CAN WE GET A FLUTE EMOJI PLS @APPLE ?! STREAM RUMORS FOR A FAT A** AND A CLEAR MIND.” While in a major part of the video, Lizzo was seen trying to drag her outfit to her thighs while holding her phone and chilling out with the musicians, she all of a sudden lifts her outfit and starts twerking on the flute as the camera showed a close-up of her posterior.
