Fans are taking the use of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians sample, and the fact that Drake, 36, used a Kim look-a-like on the cover art for the new single, as proof that the Rich Flex rapper has romantic feelings for The Kardashians star.
On Twitter, one person wrote: “drake just confess his love for kim in this song or am i trippin?”
Another user tweeted: “favourite drake song that ive heard in a while and he’s confessing his love for kim kardashian
While a third person asked: “So is Drake and Kim dating now?”
Around one minute into the track, mom-of-four Kim is heard saying: “I didn’t come this far just to come this far and not be happy.”
“OK,” her mother Kris replies as Kim then says: “Remember that,” before repeating the quote.
Kim then admits: “Yep, I saw it on the internet,” as she giggles and Drake’s singing continues.
Not only did Drake sample the Skims founder, who was married to the Canada rapper’s hip-hop nemesis Kanye West, 45, but the context of the conversation revolves around Kim deciding to divorce the father of her four children.
Drake’s lyrics include the words: “But deep down I think about you all day, mami,” and “I just wanna take you on a holiday, mami, Say what’s on your mind, I’m a call away, mami,” but it’s unclear if he is referring to Kim.
Upon hearing the new song with Kim’s voice, fans immediately took to Twitter to share their thoughts on how Kanye may react.
“Drake piping Kim, K LMAOOO who’s ready for another one of Kanye’s episodes,” one person posted.
Another said: “Nowwwwwwww is Kanye gonna give Drake the Pete Davidson treatment…? Drake is for sure an agent of chaos, cuz Kim K?” referring to Kim’s ex-boyfriend Pete.
A third person tweeted a popcorn-eating gif and said: “Me patiently waiting to see how Kanye is going to react after hearing Drake sample Kim’s ‘I didn’t come this far to come this far’ on his newest drop Search & Rescue…”
And a fourth fan said: “Drake done sampled Kim K talm bout [sic] her divorce w/ Ye AND he used a Kim lookalike for his cover.
“Kanye’s next Instagram post finna be hilarious,” they added.
People were also discussing the new track on Reddit as one person shared a screenshot of a tweet that read: “Drake sampled the voice of Kim Kardashian discussing her divorce with Kanye West on his new single ‘Search & Rescue.’”
One person commented and claimed: “Drake wants kim and he’s out here trying to manifest her. there’s no other explanation.
“Also, i’m assuming kim cleared this sample because drake seems to business savvy to not get clearance. I hope she enjoys her 25% cut of royalties or whatever she negotiated,” they alleged.
“I don’t think drake wants kim at this point he wants to be Kanye or wants to get under Kanye’s skin,” another person speculated.
A different Reddit user commented: “Some people think she ad libbed for him bc they don’t know where the audio comes from lol.”
And a fourth person simply wrote: “I just hope they don’t end up together.”
This isn’t the first time that Kim and Drake have been linked to one another.
In 2022, Drake referenced the reality TV star on his album, Her Loss, amid rumors that the duo hooked up some time ago.
The rapper teamed up with 21 Savage for a song called More M’s.
In the song, 21 Savage raps: “Put her Skims on, now she actin’ like she Kim.”
A FLING WITH KIM?
Rumors of a closeness between the former Degrassi star and Kim have been swirling for some time.
Drake reignited the buzz in 2021 when sources claimed he was ready to make a go at Kim following her split from Kanye.
A source told Heat magazine at the time: “Drake could never understand what Kim saw in Kanye – he was saying for years how he wasn’t the right guy for Kim and it would all end in tears.
“He was surprised it took her so long to realize, and started messaging her the moment it became clear that the divorce was inevitable.
“He’s ready to see her whenever she says the word, basically, and he’s confident that will happen fairly soon.”
Kim officially filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021 after months of speculation that their seven-year marriage was over.
Around the same time those reports surfaced, Drake’s fans speculated that he dropped a hint about sleeping with Kim behind Kanye’s back.
In the song Wants and Needs, he rapped: “Yeah, I probably go link to Yeezy I need me some Jesus. But as soon as I start confessin’ my sins, he wouldn’t believe us.”
It comes after the award-winning artist sparked rumors he slept with Kim back in 2018.
Drake then appeared to insinuate he’d slept with Kim on his track In My Feelings.
On the record, he rapped about having sex with a woman by the name of Kiki, which is Kim’s family nickname.
