We are all trying to find out who Keke is and how she is a lucky girl. But if you pay close attention to the lyrics you will realize that Drake shout out five women. We take this opportunity to go on a witch hunting mission and discover who these ladies are. The first girl is cute obvious.

Word around town is that the two got hitched up a while back but that’s water under the bridge now.
Keke receives most of the shut out from the song, she forms the first part of each song; “Keke, do you love me?” Well upon further inquiry into the life of Drake past girlfriends, then the name Keshi Chante comes out of the closet. To all of you who don’t know her, she remains to be Drake first love and first official girlfriend. The dude really keeps track of all the females in her life.

Drake seemed not to sit well with the diss as he replied with “Duppy freestyle” which took strong jibes at the entire “G.O.O.D MUSIC” record label owned by Kanye West. Things were far from over when Pusha T dropped “Adinon” which just made the matters worse.

The revelation took the world by storm and it seemed to have ended the career of Drake. But Drake picked up the pieces an owned up being a father.
Drake In My Feelings continues to rule the airwaves and maintains the number one spot at the Hot 100 singles chart. This is the third time around that another track earns him the bragging rights. The song has done tremendously well that it skipped two other songs “Gods plan” and “Nice and what” in the top chart to reach the first spot. Ever since Drake had boo’d up with Rihanna a long time ago to give us “What’s my name” which also ruled the number 1 spot. They did a recap of the same when they teamed up for “work”. But “one dance” secures his stay at the top of the food chain which features Kyla and Popcaan to years ago.
