One of Drake’s aliases is “Young Angel” so it seemed fitting we talk to him about young love. Thanks to a keen ear who caught this shout out to “Tessa” (the name of Keshia Chanté’s mom) and a reference to her daughter on the second verse of his song “Deceiving,” we put two and two together. Drake rhymes: ”What up Tessa, I love you like my own mama / And your daughter’s getting grown, mama / And me, I’m just here working, waiting / patient for her to be ready to love and leave alone drama.”
MuchMusic VJ Sarah Taylor got Drake to open up about his past relationship with Canadian singer Keshia Chanté.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview.
SARAH TAYLOR: Can I ask you if you would call Keshia Chanté an ex?
DRAKE: Can you ask me if I would call Keshia Chante an ex? Uh, I guess. Sure, why not? At a young point in my life, when I was young.
That’s so cute.
DRAKE: It’s not cute (smiling). I dunno. Sure, I would be proud to call her. She’s a cool person, I’d be proud to say that we had our time when we were like 16 years old.
She’s cool, she’s a successful, talented Canadian lady, that’s awesome.
DRAKE: She’s great. She’s one of the first people in the industry I met and we just connected.
[Ed Note: Looks like Drake might be cozying up to another pretty singer - Rihanna!!]Tweet
