If you do a brief search of Drake’s background on Google, you’ll find out he’s a mix of Jewish and black ancestry, in addition to his Canadian upbringing. So, it comes with a huge surprise the 33-year-old dropped a one-line verse in Arabic from the new song ‘Only You Freestyle,’ with rap star Headie One.

Drizzy raps, “Arabic ting tells me I look like Yusuf, look like Hamza. Habibti please, ana akeed, inti wa ana ahla,” which translates to “I’m sure you and I look better together.”

Drake’s one-liner had fans divided over his accent and curious to know who taught him Arabic, with few speculating it were DJ Khaled, since the duo recently collaborated on two new tracks, “Greece” and “Popstar.”

Talk about flex!

It’s worth mentioning Drake is no stranger to blending a bit of Arabic in his songs. 2017 saw Drizzy rapping “This is a blessing mashallah wallahi” in the redux version of “Sweeterman.” by fellow native artist Ramriddlz, and saying “Habibi” in the song “Portland” and “Inshallah” in “Diplomatic Immunity.”

What’s more, some of his biggest hits include Drake fluently singing in Spanish in the 2018 chart-busting track, “Mia.”
