Drake Fans Believe He Name-Dropped His Son on “God’s Plan”
Drake's fifth studio album Scorpion has effortlessly caused a stir on social media, broken streaming records and more recently led to a flurry of fan theories regarding its lyrics—including one that Drake snuck his son's name into "God's Plan."
The double-disc album, which was released on Friday (June 29), is comprised of somber, melodic tunes as well as club bangers such as the lead single "God's Plan." According to a fan theory, however, the OVO frontman may have just hinted at being a new dad on the Murda Beatz production.
The lyric in question is perhaps one of Aubrey's most Drake lines ever and by far the most Instagram quotable. It comes about midway through the song, in the second verse, when he proudly proclaims, "I only love my bed and my mama, I'm sorry." To the traditional listener, it would appear as though Drizzy is simply stating common knowledge: he's a mama's boy and, like most of us, enjoys his slumber.
Leave it to Twitter, however, to draw their suspicions that Drake was in fact singing the middle name of his son, "Mahbed," and not the presumed "my bed." Considering the video's emotional toll, this fan theory could oddly enough be sensical and just another example of Drizzy's deft, double entendres at play.
Nonetheless, for those eager to hear Drake's thoughts on allegedly "hiding a child" skip to track four, titled “Emotionless," on Scorpion and hear him unload lines like, “Look at the way we live/I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.”
