While Drake has long reigned supreme in Canada thanks to his work in helping get both Toronto and Canada on the map when it comes to the rap game, 2018 was definitely not his year. While he may have done well when it comes to Spotify streams and album sales, his reputation in Canada has taken a serious hit as a result of multiple situations throughout the year.
With the start of a new year, you would think Drake would beattempting to enter 2019 under the radar and focus on getting back into Canadians’ good graces. Instead, Drake’s latest actions didn’t just upset Canadians, but fans across the globe and it’s landed the Toronto rapper into his first controversy of the year, only three days into 2019.
It all started when Drake posted this photo on his Instagram with the caption “2019 cook up… Aubreezy.”
Pictured are both Drake as well as rapper/singer Chris Brown at a New Year’s Eve party. Brown has been an especially controversial artist after he attacked Rihanna in 2009 though this isn’t the only issue Brown has had in the past. The rapper/singer has also had a restraining order placed on himself after stalking his ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. As a result, the stardom Chris Brown had pre-2009 has nosedived in the years since.
