Lizzo and Cardi B’s track “Rumors” got many people talking when it was released, and it thanks to the Drake lyric that caught most people’s attention.
Now, Lizzo herself has revealed that Drake had a reaction to the song. She revealed this while on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
“There’s a lyric in the song—‘No, I ain’t fuck Drake yet.’ Do explain,” guest host Niall Horan said, to which Lizzo responded, “Okay, so the original line was, ‘No, I ain’t fuck Niall yet.’ But the label said it was a little bit provocative. So I changed it to Drake, a safer bet.”
Niall further asked her if Drake had heard the song and the specific name drop, to which she replied, “I think he’s heard the number four song in the country,” later saying, “Actually, I have heard from Drake. But that’s all I’m gonna say on that.”
The singer-rapper also addressed the bullying she has faced. “I don’t mind critiques about me, my music,” she said. “I don’t even mind the fat comments, you know. I just feel like it’s unfair sometimes, the treatment that people like me receive. … People are like, ‘Don’t let ’em see you with your head down.’ My head is always up.”
