Drake, globally renowned rapper and songwriter, recently confronted the ongoing speculation regarding his relationship with "Stranger Things" sensation, Millie Bobby Brown, in a track from his new album. This move by the artist seeks to provide clarity amidst swirling rumors that have surrounded their rapport for years.

The Canadian rapper's fresh track, "Another Late Night," part of his album *For All The Dogs*, holds a specific lyric addressing the skeptics and critics. "Weirdos in my comments talkin’ ‘bout some Millie Bobby, look / Bring them jokes up to the gang, we get to really flockin’,” he emphasizes, singling out those who've found their friendship questionable.

It's essential to trace this issue back to its origins. The discussions surrounding their relationship first surged when a then-14-year-old Brown shared that the pair had an amicable bond and often exchanged texts, even discussing topics like boy advice in 2018. Given that Drake, celebrated for hits like "In My Feelings", is nearly two decades older than Brown, their interactions raised eyebrows and led to substantial online chatter.

Brown, who further established her stardom with her role in "Enola Holmes," expressed her frustration with the media's undue focus on their friendship. She criticized outlets for making their "lovely friendship" a sensationalized headline, indicating that their bond was innocent and purely platonic.

While this topic is making waves, Drake is also managing fallout from another lyrical choice. Speculation is rife that the rapper may have thrown subtle shade at his ex-flame, Rihanna, and her current partner, A$AP Rocky, in a song from the same album. For those who might not recall, Drake and the Barbadian songstress had an intermittent relationship spanning nearly a decade, which concluded in 2016.
