Is Drake Dating Rashida Jones and Tyra Banks? May 11, – pm by Stephanie Long TWITTER. That’s what some are beginning to think. According to.
Drake has had a long history of romances, from his famous on-again-off-again saga with Rihanna , to his even more famous and more recent Instagram with Jennifer Lopez , which she reposted on her own account, basically confirming their dating or at least hooking up status. Then of course, there were his Degrassi days—Jimmy and Ashley forever!

Last week, Drake put out the lengthy, dolorous, way-too-hyped Views , arguably the first lackluster release of his career. I realize how bold a question this is. We all follow you on Instagram. Maybe these are the somewhat emotionally stunted politics of high school hookups, but this is not how mature-ish year-old humans behave in reciprocal adult relationships.
Of course, Drake is not a normal year-old human. He is obviously going to have more short-term, star-powered situationships than most people; that is part of his job.
Rihanna is the diva whose groovy jams got the whole world up to dance, and Drake is the soulful rapper with a roster of celebrity friends. It was inevitable that the two should cross paths.

Finally, a recent interview with Rihanna helped to shed some light on where things stand with Drake currently. In , Rihanna was still a relatively fresh face on the music scene.

The rapper Drake has, if you go by one of his song ‘s lyrics, a short list of interests. The first is money. The second is the city of Toronto. In the world of hip-hop, it’s not outlandish to identify the acquisition of wealth as a motivator, nor is it particularly odd to claim mythical status in one’s hometown. But ” I run Toronto “?
