Lizzo’s hotline was blinging after she name-checked Drake.
The Grammy-winning artist reveals that she heard from her Canadian crush after she shouted him out on her latest single “Rumors.” “No, I ain’t f**k Drake yet,” Lizzo raps on the Cardi B-assisted track.
During her appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday, Lizzo confirmed that the 6 God reached out to her after hearing the racy lyric, but she remained coy about what exactly he said.
“Actually, I have heard from Drake. But that’s all I’m gonna say on that,” she said.
Lizzo also joked that Niall Horan, who was guest hosting the show, was in the original lyrics. “OK, so the original line was, ‘No, I ain’t f**k Niall yet.’ The label said it was a little bit provocative. So I changed it to Drake, a safer bet,” she told the former One Direction member.
When asked if Drake had heard “Rumors,” Lizzo responded, “I think he’s heard the number four song in the country.”
After the song dropped earlier this month, Lizzo tried to shoot her shot with Drake on Twitter, writing, “Hey big head @Drake.”

In a previous interview with Apple Music, Lizzo revealed why she decided to name-drop Drizzy. “I just thought it would be so funny to say,” she said. “I have a small relationship with him. He’s very cool.”
