Canadian rapper Drake has expressed admiration for American singer Taylor Swift, hailing her as the only competitor he “ever rated” in terms of global music success and star power.
The OVO Sound boss admitted that Swift’s immense influence and commercial success make her a formidable figure in the music industry.
Drake went on to acknowledge the potential impact of Swift’s star power on chart performance, confessing that he might adjust his project release date to avoid direct competition with her.
The rapper shared these sentiments in his latest track, ‘Red Button,’ featured on his newly released project, ‘Scary Hours 3,’ which premiered at midnight on November 16.
The ongoing rivalry between Drake and Swift for the top spot on music charts is a testament to their consistent dominance in the industry.
The acknowledgment in Drake’s lyrics adds a new dimension to their dynamic as two of the most influential figures in contemporary music.
