With fans speculating that Drake‘s new album ‘Scorpion’ references a long-rumoured relationship with Bella Hadid, the model has finally responded to the rumours on Twitter.
‘Scorpion’, released yesterday, features a number of lyrics that are thought to be references to the supposed relationship. On ‘Finesse’, the star raps: “Should I do New York? I can’t decide / Fashion week is more your thing than mine.”
“I can’t even lie, I’d rather stay inside,” he continues. “I can’t do suit and tie / Can’t be in a room with you and stand on different sides. One thing at a time / I have to learn to hide / One thing at a time / Emotions running high / I wish you felt alright.” The song is thought to be a reference to Hadid, who suffers from chronic Lyme disease.
Elsewhere on the record, ‘Sandra’s Rose’ sees Drake name drop Hadid’s father, Mohamed: “My house is full of supermodels just like Mohamed Hadid.”
Responding to the rumoured relationship on Twitter, Bella Hadid was forthright. “Not me!!!that’s disrespectful. WHY CANT PPL BE FRIENDS W/o all the insinuation?” she wrote. Check out the tweet below.

Having teased the album for some time before sharing the lengthy 25 song tracklist, yesterday saw the Canadian rapper’s new, double album fifth studio LP arrive on streaming services – featuring the singles ‘God’s Plan’, ‘I’m Upset’ and ‘Nice For What’.
The album also featured unreleased Michael Jackson vocals on the track ‘Don’t Matter To Me’, while Jay-Z guests on ‘Talk Up’, both Ty Dolla $ign and Static Major lend vocals to ‘After Dark’ and Future” contributes to ‘Blue Tint’.
Fans are also surprised that the Toronto rapper confirms allegations made by Pusha-T on the diss track ‘The Story Of Adidon’ – confessing that he has a son named Adonis.
On the track ‘Emotionless’, Drake raps: “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid…Breaking news in my life I don’t run to the blogs/ the only ones I want to tell are in my phone I can call/ They always ask, ‘Why let it run if it’s false’/ You know a wise man once said nothing at all.”
