Drake‘s fascination with Aaliyah just got weirder. In heaven she’s probably saying, “You wasn’t with me shooting in the gym!” using his own line to question his latest move proving, uh, he’s borderline obsessed. Forget the tattoo of Aaliyah’s face on his back–that wasn’t enough! Sampling her “At Your Best (You Are Love)” for “Unforgettable” didn’t quite scream ‘I love you, Aaliyah’ enough either. Executive producing her posthumous album was almost enough to profess his admiration for her. It took Drizzy’s latest tattoo to truly honor the late R&B singer, you know, the one he never met.
The tattoo on the side of Drake’s ribcage reads “416,” which is Toronto’s area code. But the former Degrassi actor couldn’t leave it at that. The single line on the 4 is bolded so it reads 416 and 116. And what significance does 116 have to Drake, you ask? It’s Aaliyah’s birthday (January 16). We love Drake, but this is getting weirder by the day. Yes, Aaliyah was loved by everyone. The kind of
love infatuation Drake has is, how do we say, awkward. All of the Aaliyah homage aside, Drake has made time to work toward his high school diploma. “I’m actually spending my summer graduating high school. That’s my main focus after OVO Fest. I only have one credit left, and I’m really excited about that,” he told Now Toronto. Congrats are in order. For working towards the diploma, not the new tat.
