Sexyy Red Speaks About How She Manages To Get So Many Drake Features

Sexyy Red and Drake have worked together several times recently, and the Missouri native has now jokingly explained why that is the case. The 26-year-old rapper dropped her new album In Sexyy We Trust with little notice earlier this week, and it features a cameo by the 6 God wherein he spits over Metro Boomin‘s “BBL Drizzy” beat.

Soon after the joint went viral online, one fan joked wrote, and asked her: “Are you fucking Drake for features ?” Without missing a beat or explaining herself, she responded succinctly (and presumably sarcastically): “Yes.”

Drake has taken quite a shine to Sexyy Red since her rise to fame last year, recently referring to her as his guiding light. While sharing photos on Instagram from his It’s All a Blur — Big As the What? Tour with J. Cole and Lil Durk, the Canadian superstar bestowed a special title on his peer.

“Red really my muse in this short and confusing life,” he wrote in the social-media caption. That same month, Sexyy was recruited to play the mother of Drake’s child in the music video for their “Rich Baby Daddy” collaboration from For All the Dogs.

He previously called the St. Louis MC his “rightful wife” when the two linked up at his concert in New York over the summer. A viral photo showed the OVO Sound boss planting a passionate kiss on Sexyy’s cheek as she cozied up to him and caressed his face.

In early April, Joe Budden alleged that Drake was being paid to promote Sexyy Red. On an episode of his eponymous podcast, the former Slaughterhouse rapper offered a theory as to why Drizzy is closely aligning himself with Red.

“Respectfully, it sounds like a n-gga that could rap at that level that gets paid off of everybody’s deal tryna rap. That’s what it sounds like to me,” he said. “Oh, you think he just like being around Sexyy Red that much? … I can name some more people.”

Red issued a short and sweet response, simply writing on X (formerly Twitter): “They so dumb.”
