Drake may think he knows “When to Say When,” but fans aren’t loving that he’s apparently changing tunes about his “unconditional love” for Sophie Brussaux, the mother of his two-year-old son, Adonis, in one of his latest songs. The 6ix rep and Raptors’ promoter probably thought he was giving the fans what they wanted when he dropped two surprise songs to listeners on February 29. But while everyone seemed cool with “Chicago Freestyle,” people were in their feelings over “When to Say When” thanks to a certain line.“Baby mama fluke, but I love her for who she is,” he raps, essentially calling his time with Brussaux a matter of happenstance. The line has had Twitter in an uproar since the release, with some fans throwing in the Drizzy towel and others pointing out that the line isn’t as bad as some are making it out to be. In that latter camp, plenty of fans are pointing to the definition of “fluke”—an unusual or lucky thing that happens by accident—as a defence. As in, maybe Drake was saying that he wasn’t expecting to be in the situation with Brussaux that he is, but he’s lucky that it happened?[video_embed id='-1']RELATED: Drake confirms fatherhood[/video_embed]Whatever his true intentions, he’s remained mum on the subject (no pun intended) which has only ignited the fuel for those who are are not having it. If fans can expect anything from the 33-year-old Canadian rapper, it’s that he’ll continue to reveal all through his songs. That is, after all, how fans found out that he fathered a child in the first place (he confirmed the rumours on some of the tracks from his double album Scorpion in 2018). “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid,” he explained on “March 14.”Drake has since spoken about Adonis and his relationship with Brussaux, a 28-year-old retired adult star turned artist. He opened up a couple of years ago on LeBron James’ HBO series The Shop, revealing that he’s “excited” to be a parent and that he couldn’t wait to share what he’s learned from his own parents, including the “patience and unconditional love” he got from his mother.“[I’m] a single father learning to communicate with a woman who… we’ve had our moments,” he said at the time. “I do want to be able to explain to my son what happened. But I don’t have any desire for him to not love his mother. I don’t ever want the world to be angry at his mother. We have found ourselves in a situation and we are both equally responsible. Now, I’m just really excited to be a great father.”
“No matter what happens, I have unconditional love for the mother of my child because I want him to love his mother and I have to project that energy.”There is, of course, a case to made that rapping about the mother of his child being a fluke isn’t the best way to go about projecting that energy. But in the meantime, people seem to be as obsessed as ever with Champagne Papi’s actual dating life. Nonstop rumours about who the rapper is dating have been swirling, with names like Kylie Jenner, Rihanna and model Imaan Hammam thrown around though nothing official has been confirmed.[video_embed id='1913978']BEFORE YOU GO: It may be called 'American Idol', but Canada is well represented [/video_embed]
