The relationship most men have with their boyhood crushes probably consisted of staring up at a bedroom poster, or sneaking off to the bathroom with a magazine clipping. But Drake isn’t most men. Being the biggest rapper alive has its perks, like say, actually getting to meet those crushes. In some cases, he’ll even date them, like he did with Tyra Banks, Tatyana Ali, and most recently, Jennifer Lopez.
But Drake’s relationship with the legendary U.K. R&B crooner Sade has taken a turn away from the romantic and into the paternal. When the two hung out in London over the weekend, Drake posted a couple of Instagrams with the elusive singer, including one with his mother. “Two very important ladies in my life,” he captioned it.
But that’s not all. Drake likes to celebrate major milestones by getting new ink, and that’s exactly what he did after hanging out with Sade. Drake’s newest tattoo — which was designed by Swedish tattoo artist Niki Norberg — is a giant portrait of Sade wearing a headdress, and covers most of his ribs, just like he raps on his new song “Gyalchester”: “Tat on my ribs like I do not know what permanent is.”
Something tells us this one isn’t washing off. Check it out below.
