Before we reply the query of whether or not or not Drake simply acquired bodied by a teenage Musical.ly star, allow us to again up about three,000 steps to determine a basis for this (positively not actual) celeb feud. What you want to know to resolve whether or not or not a 16-year-old named Jacob Sartorius threw “shade” at Drake in his new music “We’re Not Friends” — which is what a supply speaking to Us Weekly would have you ever consider — is that Sartorius used up to now Millie Bobby Brown, who stated one time on a crimson carpet that she is pals with Drake and that he’s “so unbelievable” and that they textual content. That’s how we acquired the headline “Jacob Sartorius Throws Shade At Ex Millie Bobby Brown’s Friendship With Drake,” which Vulture will now flippantly examine.
Sartorius and Brown reportedly began courting initially of this yr. They then apparently broke up in July. In September, Brown was requested on a crimson carpet about her “relationship with Drake,” and she or he stated he’s a “nice position mannequin” and offers her recommendation “about boys.” Now Sartorius has a brand new EP popping out and a lot of the songs are stated to be about Brown, together with “We’re Not Friends,” the place the alleged Drake shade happens. In the nice acoustic monitor, Sartorius sings: “We’re not pals / Do you assume I actually wanna hear about him / I do it for a purpose, not simply to be good / Girl I wanna offer you greater than good recommendation.”
And there, maybe, is the so-called shade. (Or no less than that’s our greatest guess.) Is Sartorious referencing “good recommendation” as a shot throughout the bow at Drake? What is that Satorius desires to offer this “lady,” who can be Brown if this was a Drake diss monitor? Actually, don’t attempt to reply that. Stop enthusiastic about that query. But if this is meant to throw “shade” on the 32-year-old Canadian MC, then why does the music sound prefer it’s being sung from the angle of a child being friendzoned and is uninterested in listening to his crush go on about different boys? That can be unusual contemplating Sartorius did “date” Brown, however possibly Brown would proceed to name Sartorious after their breakup to speak about Drake, for some purpose?
Other questions raised by Vulture staffers embody, “i feel probably the most complicated factor is that it doesn’t sound prefer it’s from the angle of an ex?” And, “why have i listened to this music 10x and solely simply heard this little one utter the phrases ‘slide via’? Boy what’s your curfew?” And, “omg its lower than three minutes lengthy?” All of which prompted one author to depart the dialog by saying, “u know what i completely should go. i’m not inviting demons into my residence. good night time!”
So is “We’re Not Friends” actually meant to “shade” Drake? Honestly we have no idea, but when so many members of the Vulture employees needed to lose items of their souls to try to discover some grain of purpose inside this tempest of teenage angst, then it was solely proper to make you all share in it with us.
