Remember around the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017, when Drake and Jennifer Lopez were rumoured to be an item? Apparently some heartaches still rankle.
Recently, the 31-year-old rapper surprised fans by dropping two tracks – “God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity” – from forthcoming EP “Scary Hours”. Turns out, one of his brand new songs has a reference to former flame Jennifer Lopez.
The lyrics on “Diplomatic Immunity” reads, “2010 was when I lost my halo / 2017 I lost a J. Lo / A Rotterdam trip had me on front page, though“. There is a possibility that Drake may be referencing a tabloid story in January 2017 that showed him having a meal with French ex-porn star Sophie ‘Rosee Divine’ Brussaux at a Japanese restaurant in Amsterdam.
During their brief romance, the duo never officially confirmed anything. However, Drake and J.Lo weren’t shy about posting lovey-dovey snapshots of themselves on social media. The pair was once photographed on a sofa with Lopez snuggling up to Drake’s arms. They also connected at Lopez’s “All I Have” Las Vegas show. Sadly, things between them fizzled out approximately two months later.
This is not the first time the Toronto hip hop artist has rapped about his former fling. On his track “”Free Smoke” (released March 2017), he sang “I drunk text J.Lo / Old number, so it bounce back”. According to sources, he also sampled her 1999 hit “If You Had My love” on his tune “Teenage Fever”.
Having said that, Lopez (who has 9-year-old twins Max and Emme by her third ex-husband Marc Anthony) has since been happily attached to former Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. Meanwhile, Drake – who is 17 years younger than J.Lo – has never been married. If Drake’s latest record is inspired by his past relationships, maybe we’ll get more songs about his ex’s (e.g.: Rihanna).
In the meantime, here’s the full track to “Diplomatic Immunity”
