Drake, the Canadian rapper and singer, has recently released his seventh studio album, “For All the Dogs”, which features 18 tracks and collaborations with artists such as Future, Lil Baby, Young Thug, and Travis Scott. The album has received mixed reviews from critics and fans, but one song in particular has sparked a lot of controversy and debate on social media. The song is called “Fear of Heights”, and some listeners believe that Drake is dissing his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky in the lyrics.
The ‘Fear of Heights’ Lyrics People Think Drake Used to Diss Rihanna
In one verse of “Fear of Heights”, Drake raps, “Why they make it sound like I’m still hung up on you? That could never be. Gyal can’t run me. Better him than me. Better it’s not me. I’m anti, I’m anti. Yeah, and the sex was average with you. Yeah, I’m anti ’cause I had with you. Okay, I’m auntie like your daddy’s sister. Auntie like a family picture, and I had way badder b*****s than you. TBH. Yeah, that man, he still with you, he can’t leave you. Ya’ll go on vacation, I bet it’s Antigua”.
Some fans think that Drake is taking aim at Rihanna’s relationship with ASAP Rocky, who is the father of her baby boy. They interpret Drake’s lyrics as a way of saying that he is not jealous of Rihanna, and that he feels like he dodged a bullet by not being the one who got her pregnant.
However, other fans disagree and think that Drake is not dissing Rihanna at all, but rather expressing his feelings of regret and resentment.
They argue that Drake is still hurt by Rihanna’s rejection of him, and that he is trying to convince himself and others that he is over her. They point out that Drake has publicly professed his love for Rihanna several times in the past, such as when he presented her with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. They also note that Drake has a history of making songs about his exes, such as “Marvin’s Room” and “Hotline Bling”.
The debate over Drake’s song “Fear of Heights” has divided fans on social media, with some siding with Drake and others with Rihanna. Some fans have also criticized Drake for being disrespectful and petty towards Rihanna, while others have defended him for being honest and expressive. As of now, neither Drake nor Rihanna has commented on the song or the controversy surrounding it. It’s not even confirmed if those lyrics are actually about Rihanna.
