Drake’s Certified Lover Boy is finally here and we can already see the album arousing controversy! Certified Lover Boy consists of 21 songs and guest appearances from several industry artists, including Jay-Z, Lil Baby, Rick Ross, 21 Savage, and Kid Cudi. While Drake’s sixth studio album made headlines, one song, in particular, seems to have confused fans.
Drake’s “Girls Want Girls” Controversy: What Happened?
Drake’s latest studio album Certified Lover Boy features several rappers like Jay-Z, Lil Baby, Future, Young Thug, Lil Durk, Rick Ross, 21 Savage, Kid Cudi and singers like Giveon, Ty Dolla Sign, Yebba and Time. While the album received international attention, it was Drake’s collaboration with Lil Baby, titled Girls want girls, which drew a number of mixed responses from internet users, especially the LGBTQ + community.
As fans listened to the album and gathered their thoughts on Drake’s sixth album, many of them were a bit confused by one of the rapper’s lines from a collaboration with Lil Baby. Girls want girls opens with a strange chorus that looks a bit like this:
I’m looking at your dress because it’s see-through / Talk about all the bullshit you’ve been through
Say you’re a lesbian, girl, me too / Girls want girls where I’m from.
Twitter reacts to “Girls want girls”
The lyrics mentioned above left many fans confused and wondering what Drake meant by them. Several fans are of the opinion that the lyrics simply indicate that women leave their boyfriends for other women or puns. However, several fans have been in an uproar over how the male perspective towards gay women and their sexualization must end.
Fans also joked about the mentioned lyrics, taking them literally and sharing tweets about how Drake is lesbian. Check out some reactions on Twitter at Girls want girls from Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, below –
