Drake casually came out as a lesbian during a track on his new album Certified Lover Boy and that’s well and truly enough existence for today.

Proving that straight men never know where to draw the line, the 34-year-old’s sixth studio involves the song “Girls Want Girls” and you can already see where this is going.

The song, which features Lil Baby, sees Drake sing about the concept of being a lesbian for several minutes, such as “girls want girls”, “please bring your girlfriend along with you” and: “She like eating p***y, I’m like, ‘Me too.'”

But one pretty unexpected line, in particular, left Twitter users stumped at what on earth the Toronto rapper actually means.

The lyric goes: “Yeah, say that you a lesbian, girl, me too / Ayy, girls want girls where I’m from / Wait, woah, yeah, girls want girls.”

‘Just heard that Drake is a lesbian!’

Drake really just said ‘you’re a lesbian, girl me too’, man I’m going to sleep,” one user tweeted.

In other words, it was safe to say that Drake’s announcement that he’s a lesbian went down about as well as you can imagine it.

Drake dropped Certified Lover Boy on Friday (3 September), the long-awaited album features 21 tracks with verses from Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Travis Scott, Young Thug and more.

He wrote that the album is about “a combination of toxic masculinity and acceptance of truth which is inevitably heartbreaking”, in a bio for the album on Apple Music.

But the album’s release this week wasn’t without its hiccups – and one came in the form of Lil Nas X.

The 22-year-old trolled Drake once again after he released the sleeve cover for Certified Lover Boy which featured 12 pregnant woman emojis.

Taking to Twitter, the “Industry Baby” rapper, real name Montero Hill, spoofed the album by swapping out the emojis for pregnant man emojis instead.

This wasn’t the first time Lil Nas X pranked Drake and his fanbase.

In 2019, let his fans know how his debut album is going by joking that it will be titled “Nothing Was The Same” – exactly the same as Drake’s own 2013 album.

He then parodied the album’s cover, complete with his side profile against a blue sky, which should be shown in every major art gallery in the world, and one on the Moon. Just because.
