Drake has shocked fans with his new look. During a livestream last night, Drizzy wore yellow nail polish, and, of course, fans had plenty of jokes about it.
On Saturday (June 4), Drake appeared on a livestream for his favorite betting app Stake. People in the chat noticed the OVO Sound leader was wearing yellow nail polish, something he hasn’t done before. On his left pinky finger, he was also rocking light blue nail polish.
Drake also wore an oversized 2000s-era State Property shirt. It’s unclear if it’s an authentic shirt or a bootleg. The apparel brand, launched by Beanie Sigel in 2003, has been defunct for several years. However, in 2018, Beanie announced that SP was making a comeback.
As far as Drake and his yellow nails, fans aren’t feeling it.
“The princess of rap is serving [heart eyes emoji],” joked one person.
Another fan tweeted, “Drake with painted nails while wearing a State Property shirt…the jokes and diss tracks write themselves[.]”
More chimed in: “[Lil] Yachty got Drake painting his nails. Hate to see it.”
Lil Yachty and Drake have become rap BFFs over the last year. It’s no surprise Yachty paints his nails and even has his own line of all-gender nail polish called Crete. Since they’re friends, Drake could’ve been inspired by Yachty’s own nail polish.
Lil Yachty doesn’t have a problem defying gender norms. In 2020, Lil Boat defended a 17-year-old high school student Trevor Wilkinson’s decision to wear nail polish, which caused him to get suspended. In support, he started painting his nails different colors. In May 2021, Yachty launched his all-gender nail polish line called Crete.
It will be interesting to see if Drake will rock colored nails on his tour this summer. Drizzy and 21 Savage are embarking on It’s All a Blur Tour in a couple of weeks in support of their joint album, Her Loss.
The North American trek kicks off on June 16 in New Orleans and will hit major cities like Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas before wrapping it up on Sept. 5 in Glendale, Ariz.
