Who would have thought that Drake is into country? Well, it turns out that Canada’s favourite rapper is also a huge fan of Canada’s favourite country queen, Shania Twain. And not just a fan, he did the Drake version of fangirling at his concert in Nashville on Sunday.
He told the crowd, ‘I just want to say that, like, Shania Twain came to my show tonight, you know what I’m saying Nashville? So this next set, right here, I’m doing this for Shania.’ He called it his ‘love set for Shania’ which is pretty adorable and gives us all the Canadian feels.
Later, Shania visited Drake backstage for a photo-op and we’re sure (though we can’t confirm) some more fangirling. He even named her his Woman Crush Wednesday… On Monday. We guess he just couldn’t wait two days to share his feelings for Shania. We can’t fault him for that.
The only thing that would make this photo more Canadian would be a shirtless Trudeau hugging a moose in the background (and with Trudeau’s track-record this month, that doesn’t seem like too far a stretch).
This might be an unexpected pairing but we’re pretty excited about it. We can already imagine the beautiful rap/country collab these two could produce together. It would likely become Canada’s new national anthem. We’re ready.
