Fans are trying to decipher what The Voice could've meant beyond just a simple past album reference.

Lil Durk just sent out a cryptic message to Drake via his Instagram Story, and fans speculated online as to its meaning. Moreover, he tagged Drake's account, @champagnepapi, and wrote "if you reading this it ain't [too] late" with a crying-laughing emoji on a blank screen. For those of you that didn't get the reference, he referred to the 6 God's 2015 album, If You're Reading This It's Too Late (his best work, many would say). However, given that they haven't really done much recently, fans wondered whether this was a tease for a collaboration to come or perhaps something deeper.

After all, their track "Laugh Now, Cry Later" was a smash hit, and a fan favorite for many. Of course, the most likely explanation is that this is just an inside joke that millions happened to spectate. A lot of people started to joke concerning his recent Her Loss collab with 21 Savage ("Smurkio, can u do sumn for me?" was a popular comment). Regardless, it's unlikely that fans will ever know the origin of this post, unless they drop some heat soon.

Speaking of which, the Canadian superstar just teased some new music via his Instagram Story. Not only that, but the track seems to address what his ideal partner would look like. "I need someone to be patient with me / Someone to get money, would not take it from me,” he sings in the snippet. “They don’t even need to be as famous as me / I don’t think I meet ’em at the places I be / But deep down I think about you all day, mami." Maybe it's the typical Drake fodder for some, but if it's a single, it'll still make massive waves.

Meanwhile, The Voice recently linked with Memphis star GloRilla for a remix of her track "Ex's." Moreover, it appeared on the bonus edition of Glo's project, Anyways, Life's Great... Given their tight rapport and their chemistry on their charting single, another helping from these two would send fans into a frenzy. With that in mind, come back to HNHH for the latest on Drake and Lil Durk.
