If you grew up watching Much Music, you'll remember Keshia Chanté as an up-and-coming Canadian singer, otherwise, you probably know her as the host of 106 & Park. Back in the Much Music days, it seems Drake (also a Canadian TV regular at the time) and Keyshia had some kind of a romance. “She’s a cool person, I’d be proud to say that we had our time when we were like 16 years old,” said Drake of Chanté.
Women Drake Has Been Romantically Linked To
Rihanna is Drake's most on-and-off relationship. The two first got together way back in 2009 when Drake was first entering the public eye, linking once again in 2014 on the European leg of his Would You Like A Tour. In summer 2016, the couple seemed to have reunited for a time after working on new music together, with Drake proclaiming at the VMAs "She is someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old."
It's been suggested that Drake and Common's beef was at least partially inspired by rumors Drake and Serena (Common's ex) were dating. A few years later, the two reunited and made things a little more clear when they seemed to be getting close while Drake watched her compete in the U.S. Open. Things didn't last, but Serena did refer to "Aubrey" as the "funniest person" she knows later on.
"Bad Girls Club" reality star Cat Washington appeared in the Kanye West-directed video for "Best I Ever Had," which is where Drake met her, and the two dated for about a year.
"We sat on the bleachers on set," she told Philly’s 107.9. "Having fun, tweeted each other back and forth–real cool. Never thought it would go anywhere just cool, kicking it. The next thing you know I’m in Toronto and we’re having dinner. He flew me out to Toronto and we started kicking it and liking each other. One flight turned into ten, then the next thing you know I got a toothbrush in there and it’s on."
Bria inspired both "Bria's Interlude" on Thank Me Later, and some lyrics on "From Time," a Nothing Was The Same deep cut. The two met in Houston, an encounter he shared on the latter track.
“Now it’s therapeutic blowing money in the Galleria/Or Beverly Center Macy’s where I discovered Bria/Landmarks of the muses that inspired the music/When I could tell it was sincere without tryna prove it”
Tika has expressed her "slight crush" on Drake, and she also recalled going out to dinner with Drake and the rest of the cast of Nikolodeon's "Best Friends" where she got to know him a little better. "He was so nice. And I remember him being like, ‘I’m working on music,’ and he sent me some music, actually. So yeah, he’s been working on music for a long time. And I just remember- I used to call him Aubrey. And he was just super sweet and super nice.”
Drake and Kat went on one date, as he recalled on a 2013 appearance on Ellen. Unfortunately, he didn't win her over.
"I just always had a huge crush on Kat Dennings and she was kind enough one night to oblige me and we went out for dinner," he said. "They don't call me back after one date according to this."
Drake toured Australia following the release of 2015's If You're Reading This It's Too Late, and he brought video model Bernice Burgos with him. The two were photographed getting pretty close at the pool during Drake's stay.
Maliah, a model and stripper at the King Of Diamonds club in Miami, starred opposite Drake in the "Find Your Love" video, and was shouted out in Drizzy's "Miss Me" single from Thank Me Later. While they dated for a time, Maliah has suggested that her profession raised tension in the relationship.
