I’m not sure how many of you are Drake fans, but I’m a dedicated (obsessed) fan and have been since his beloved Degrassi days. But no matter what level of Drake fan you are (or aren’t), you and I still have something in common: food, because hello, you’re on Spoon University.
I hope this list influences you to have a greater appreciation (obsession) for Drake, because I’m convinced that like us, he is a fellow foodie. Here are 15 Drizzy beats I found sprinkled with foodie lyrics.
1. Make Me Proud
“Running on a treadmill and only eating salad
Sounds so smart, like you graduated college”
Drake, you just described my life. #meanttobe
“Lobster and Celine for all my babies that I miss
Chicken finger, french fries for them hoes that wanna diss”
I hope I get some lobster and Celine.
“But she was no angel, and we never waited,
I took her for sushi, she wanted to *bleep*
So we took it to go, told them don’t even plate it”
I’m more of a stir-fry gal, but if Drake wants sushi, I want sushi.
4. Come Thru
“Someone put an order in for a chicken
Told my girl to order in, I need the kitchen
Yeah they know I got the hook-up, they just wait on me to cook up
Baby I heat up the stove, you do the dishes ya know?”
This lyric really gets me because A) you can never go wrong with chicken, B) I’m picturing Drake killin’ it in the kitchen #swoon, and C) I really wouldn’t mind doing the dishes in this case.
5. Thank Me Now
“Do I ever come up in discussion over double pump lattes
and low fat muffins, do I?”
Yes, just yes. You come up in many discussions, especially when I’m sipping caramel lattes and chowing on blueberry muffins.
6. The Resistance
“I avoided the Coke game, and went with Sprite instead”
I’ve always been more of a Sprite fan myself.
7. The Ride
“And you do dinners at French Laundry and Napa Valley
Scallops and glasses of Dolce, that *bleep* is right up your alley”
So, who wants to pitch in and make a reservation at French Laundry? They have ice cream.
8. 305 To My City
“Tonight was your night, go get you some lobsters and shrimp”
I think Drake has a thing for seafood and I’m not complaining. #classy
9. Right Hand
“You dream big and sleep late, you got a lot on your plate”
The only thing filling my plate at the moment is a pool of drool from thinking about being Drake’s “right hand” girl.
10. No Tellin’
“V-Live, I order that Alfredo pasta then eat in the kitchen
like I’m in the mafia”
Alfredo pasta is my Italian weakness.
“This lost boy got fly without Peter Pan, and my delivery just
got me buzzing like the pizza man”
Guys, imagine Drake ringing your doorbell to deliver some delicious pepperoni pizza.
12. 6 Man
“Fieri, I’m in the kitchen, I’m a magician”
I’m thinking Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and chill.
13. The Presentation
“I’m perfecting my craft using more Sess
Tryna make some cheese off a single is a process
Get it? Kraft, single, cheese, process
Sit back and admire the talent that I possess”
Now I’m craving a grilled cheese.
14. Pound Cake
Okay, so Drake doesn’t say a foodie lyric in the song, but c’mon, “Pound Cake” as a song title? Foodie alert. By the way, Drake, I have a sweet tooth too, just saying.
15. Furthest Thing
“I got ’em worried, like make sure you save a slice for me,
I should have Spoons serve you up with a fork and knife for me”
Saved the best for last because how ironic is it that Drake has a body guard named “Spoons?” It’s like I was meant to write this or something.
Did I do it? Are you convinced that Drake is a fellow foodie? Yeah, thought so.
P.S. Drake, if by any chance my dream of you reading this comes true, I am very easy to please when it comes to dining — Chick-fil-a, Chipotle, all things ice cream, anything really. Just holla. ILY.
