Drake's Birthday Gifts Included a Signed Sade Poster
“Woke up to see the most beautiful woman ever in my house."
“Woke up to see the most beautiful woman ever in my house,” wrote Drake in caption where he thanks Sade, as well as OVO member Angelo Ferraro and his girlfriend, who presumably were the gift-givers.
The post showed a framed photo of Sade’s “Babyfather” single cover with a handwritten note that reads “The 24th of October 1986 was a good day… Shine on, Drake. Love Sade.”
The rapper has been a longtime fan of Sade. He told MTV News that he reached out to her in 2010 in attempts to get her to collaborate with him on his album Thank Me Later. (Sade later told Canada’s National Post that she had never been contacted about a collaboration but has widely refrained from collaborating because she's always avoided working outside her "safety zone.")
Drake also received a signed jersey and helmet from University of Alabama football players. "Also woke up to see a tide rolling in my kitchen!!!!!!" he posted.
Drake started off his birthday early by announcing his new project More Life, due out in December, on his OVO Sound radio episode on Oct. 23.
