Drake is reportedly in talks with Blackberry to promote their upcoming smartphone.
Just like most artists and celebrities, Drake is no stranger to lending out his star power to businesses. Heâs been linked to companies like Sprite, AT&T, and Nike in the past, and now heâs reportedly in talks withÂ BlackBerryÂ to promote the companyâs next big thing.
According toÂ TechCrunch, Blackberry has called on the Toronto rapper to helpÂ launchÂ the newÂ BlackBerry Classic for its November release. The smartphone is described as a âkind of a mashup of the current BlackBerry Q10 and the Bold 9900â³. We know that Drake is a fan of Blackberry's too. Heâs been spotted using the 9900 recently and in the past he's claimed to have written all of his raps on the smartphone as well.Â
As part of the promotion,Â BlackBerryÂ will say that Drake was involvedÂ in the designÂ process of the new smartphone. However,Â TechCrunchÂ notes that the deal is not finalized and could still fall through.
Let it be noted that BlackBerry is a Canadian company, and we all know how Drake likes to rep for the home team. So this could very well be true after all.
If so, will you be trying out the new Blackberry?
