After the comedian Shiggy started the viral dance for Drake’s single “In My Feelings”, the clips have been flooding everyone’s timeline with lyrics,
Keke, do you love me? Are you riding?
Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me
‘Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And I’m down for you always,”
Which raised the question, “Who the hell is KeKe?”.
Well the mystery has been solved, the KeKe that Drake is singing so emphatically to has been revealed to be Canadian singer Keshia Chanté, who according to Genius, was Drake’s first girlfriend. The two grew up together in Toronto and dated during their teens. She also replaced in for Rocsi Diaz on BET’s 106 & Park and interviewed Drake in September 2013. During that particular interview Drake told her:
“You were one of my first crushes, and a lot of people might not know this, but I actually rapped about you before.”
She is also rumored to be the inspiration for Drake‘s 2015 record “Madonna” and 2009 track “Fallen”, which featured her.
Their relationship didn’t last long but they’ve remained friends over the years.
