Sexxy Red has rapidly risen to fame, catching the attention of admirers, including renowned rapper Drake, with whom she shares a playful friendship.
Her journey to stardom began with a viral rendition of “Ahh Thousand Jugs” in 2018, a take on Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles.” This propelled her to release her debut mixtape, “Ghetto Superstar,” in 2021. In January 2023, her breakout track “Pound Town” further catapulted her to fame, and a remix featuring Nicki Minaj helped them climb the charts.
Drake, known for his support of emerging artists, particularly struck up a friendship with Sexxy Red. They became public about their friendship when Drake shared cozy photos of them together in July 2023, playfully referring to her as his “rightful wife.” While rumors of romance circulated, both clarified that they were close friends. Sexxy Red, with a boyfriend in prison, humorously remarked on their bond.
Despite the speculation, their connection remains platonic. In August 2023, they shared affectionate photos, reinforcing their close friendship. Fans have been eagerly anticipating a collaboration, and in July 2023, Sexxy Red revealed that they had recorded a song together. While Drake has yet to release it, they did team up for Drake’s “It’s All A Blur” tour, with Sexxy Red as an opening act.
As their friendship continues to grow, the prospect of a collaboration remains on the horizon. Whether or not they release their joint track, it’s clear that Drake and Sexxy Red’s bond is just beginning.
