The song, which is off of Drake’s new album with Savage 21 titled Her Loss, name drops a number of celebrities including Paris Hilton.
The lyrics go: “Sidebar, Serena, your husband a groupie, He claim we don’t got a problem but no, boo,”
There have long been rumors that Drake and the recently retired tennis champion dated in the past but although the two are publicly good friends, they have never confirmed them.
We explore the context behind these lyrics below.
DRAKE AND SERENA WILLIAMS RELATIONSHIP EXPLAINED
These two famous figures have been friends for years. Their friendship allegedly began back in 2011 when the Canadian rapper started attending her tennis matches.
He tweeted a seemingly flirty message to her around the same time which read: “@serenawilliams I cannot wait to put it on you and make you sweat……. during our match this weekend.”
This is where the dating rumors began as the Tweet was suggestive and implied they were spending time together.
In 2015, a photo of the two allegedly kissing in a restaurant in Cincinnati was posted by TMZ.
However, things seemed to die down between them after 2015 and Serena married her husband, Alexis Ohanian, two years later.
HITC and GRV Media have reached out to Alexis Ohanian for comment on the lyrics and also to Drake regarding dating rumors and what the lyrics mean.
SERENA WILLIAMS’ HUSBAND
Serena and her husband Alexis met in Rome in 2015 when they were staying in the same hotel, The Sun reports.
The internet entrepreneur proposed to Serena in December 2016 and a month later the now 41-year-old fell pregnant.
Their daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr was born on September 1, 2017, and the couple tied the knot shortly after in New Orleans.
Alexis Ohanian is well known for his part in creating the social media site Reddit, which is the seventh most popular in the US. Although he sold the site to Condé Nast, the owners of Vogue and GQ, in 2006, he remains on the board of directors.
Forbes estimates Ohanian’s net worth at $70m (£50m).
WHY DID DRAKE FIRE SHOTS AT ALEXIS OHANIAN?
We can only speculate the reasons behind Drake’s lyrics, but famously a ‘lover boy’, this is not the first time he has expressed his feelings about his love life in public.
Maybe Drake is salty that Serena Williams married her husband so soon after they were reportedly romantically linked.
Or, maybe it is simply private joke between friends.
