I’ve never seen an artist stan for another artist the way Drake stans for Aaliyah. I’d say it was cute if she were still alive but now I find his public obsession a tad bit creepy.
Drake has tattooed her face on his back, sampled her song on his debut album ‘Thank Me Later’, dedicated a poem and an open letter to her and has admitted his love for her. Not just love as in, what she stood for as an artist but REAL romantic feelings type of love. The 25-year-old rapper, who is currently on his UK tour, spoke to Tim Westwood about having some “great Aaliyah news coming soon”. He was asked to confirm whether it was for a posthumous project which would see him use some of her unreleased recordings, but he just revealed that whatever he had planned would be “special” and that it would signify “great things for music”. I have a lot of respect for Drake BUT, please leave this one alone.
