From Wheelchair Jimmy to the 6 God, Drake has had quite the butterfly transformation. When he first showed up on the rap scene, audiences weren't sure whether or not to take the former Degrassi student seriously. But after several years of critically acclaimed albums and mixtapes, Drake's romantic raps have captured fans' attention and fostered an insatiable desire for more details on his personal life.
Drake has always had a way with the ladies of rap and hip hop. He's made headlines and caused social media firestorms for his tantalizing appearances in Rihanna and Nicki Minaj's music videos and live performances - where he mostly grinds up on the two from behind. Many have speculated about Drake's relationships with RiRi and Nicki, assuming that at one point or another he must have called them girlfriends. But he's been relatively mum about the NSFW details behind their onscreen sex appeal, which he has no problem ramping up for the camera.
Dating Drake sounds just like you would expect after listening to his music. He's got a soft interior, but he may just be a freak in the sheets. While the rapper has some very emotional perspectives on life and sex, he also has quite a few kinks. And while his parents may be hoping for the rapper to settle down and get married, Drake has struggled to find a woman who understands him on both a physical and personal level.
With the latest release of his fourth studio album Views, Drake's career isn't slowing down any time soon. And his sex life has only gotten more interesting along with it. Here is a roundup of the most interestingly illicit TMI facts about Drake's sex life.
In his GQ interview, Drake opened up about life on the road and how that affects his sexual relationships. Discussing sexting, Drake didn't have too many positive things to say. But he did concede that getting nudes often helps him abstain from making mistakes in the bedroom. He said: "If you send them without me asking, it's like, you've done this before. But I'm away a lot. If there's a woman I'm into, I might want to get a picture from her to handle business myself, as opposed to doing something I might regret." While he may get lonely, Drake prefers to spend nights with just him and his hands to avoid waking up with some major regrets.
Reaching pivotal fame can drive stars to get reckless with their sex lives. And while Drake has owned up to his past indiscretions, he asserts that he has reformed his ways. He told GQ: "There's just a time where it was like, just getting p*ssy. Where I was in that sort of 'I'm young, I'm going to disconnect from my emotions and just do what everyone else tells me I should do and just be a rapper and have my fun.' And for me as a person, it just doesn't work. I just need something else. The seconds after a man reaches climax, that's like the realest moment of your life. If I don't want you next to me in that fifteen, twenty seconds, then there's something wrong."
By now you're probably familiar with Ellen DeGeneres' favorite salacious game "Never Have I Ever." When she hosted both Drake and Jared Leto on her show, she coaxed the two to play a round with her despite their reservations. The first round from Ellen: "Never have I ever hooked up with a fan on tour." At first Drake acted confused, but he quickly conceded and admitted he had. Bonus: both Ellen AND Jared Leto also admitted to having hooked up with fans.
In his spread for Fader magazine, Drake revealed that he'd take a great verse over meaningless sex any day. He said: "The hardest moments, the most difficult ones, in songwriting, are when you're looking for like, four words with the right melody and the right cadence. I pray for that. I'll take that over anything. I'll take that over sex, partying. Give me that feeling." If that isn't the most Drake thing I've ever heard, I don't know what is.
