In his verse on Mr. Right Now, Drake rapped “Yeah, said she wanna f*ck to some SZA, wait/Cause I used to date SZA back in ’08/If you cool with it, baby, she can still play.”
Though the age of consent in Drake’s native Toronto, Canada is 16, however, it is 18 where he resides in California and it is speculated that SZA might have been 17 at that time.
SZA has now confirmed that she and Drake dated in the late 2000s and further revealed that Drake did take some “poetic rap license” in the verse. She added that they dated in 2009 when she was 18 and it was completely innocent. She wrote;
“So It was actually 2009 lol.. in this case a year of poetic rap license mattered
lol I think he jus innocently rhymed 08 w wait. Anybody who really knows me and was around during this time can confirm.. it’s all love all peace
I just didn’t want anybody thinking anything underage or creepy was happening. Completely innocent . Lifetimes ago”
