Lizzo is shooting her shot with Drake.
On Friday, the Grammy-winning rapper returned with her new single and video for “Rumors,” which finds her dispelling a rumor that she had a relationship with Champagne Papi.
“No, I ain’t fu**ed Drake yet,” she raps on the Cardi B-assisted track.
But Lizzo may be wanting to turn the rumor into reality. After the song dropped, she worked up the confidence to get at Drake.
“Hey big head @Drake,” she tweeted.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Lizzo revealed why she decided to name-drop the Certified Lover Boy.
“I just thought it would be so funny to say,” she said. “I have a small relationship with him. He’s very cool.”
After hearing all the women name-checked by her male peers, Lizzo wanted to turn the tables. “I just feel like women, there’s so many times where girls’ names get dropped in songs because they’re fine,” she said.
Lizzo previously made headlines for drunkenly sliding in Chris Evans’ DMs. When asked by Power 106 if she would take Captain America over the 6 God, she decided to go with Drizzy.
“Well, I already have the baby. I’m getting that Marvel-ous check, so I ain’t even trippin’,” she said, referring to a rumor she started about being pregnant with the Marvel star’s baby. “So I don’t know. Let’s see what’s up with the 6 God.”
