Bella Hadid Denies That Drake’s ‘Finesse’ Is About Her
On Friday (June 29), Drake dropped his long-awaited album, Scorpion. Full of R&B and hip-hop songs, the double-album includes many references to the women in Drake's life and some fans believe many of the lyrics are about Bella Hadid.
But now, the model is shutting down any rumors that she is the subject of the song "Finesse." On the track, Drizzy raps, "I want my baby to have your eyes/I'm going against my own advice/Should I do New York? I can't decide/Fashion week is more your thing than mine," but Bella says they're just friends.
Replying to a fan who tweeted, "Probably, who hasn't he banged" to a Perez Hilton article that asked if Drake was caught up with the model, Hadid fired back. "Not me!!! that's disrespectful. WHY CANT PPL BE FRIEND W/o all the insinuation."
While Hadid claims the song isn't about her, elsewhere on "Finesse," Drake makes reference to a woman who has a sister. "You and your sister/Too hot to handle," he spits and then later raps, "One thing at a time/I have to learn to hid/One thing at a time/Emotions running high/I wish you felt alright."
Hadid and Drake have been the subject of dating rumor since October when Page Six reported that the rapper and The Weeknd—Bella's ex–were feuding over the model. "They both hang in the same Toronto crew and now they're having to pick sides," a source said. "They aren't getting along right now."
