The internet went wild when Drake appeared on 21 Savage's "Mr. Right Now" and not-so-subtly rapped a couple of bars suggesting he and SZA were an item back in 2008.

He goes, "Yeah, said she wanna f**k to some SZA, wait / 'Cause I used to date SZA back in '08 / If you cool with it, baby, she can still play / While I jump inside that box and have a field day."

Both Drake and SZA had yet to reach celebrity status during this time, so a low-key relationship between the two could've happened. No need to waste your time wondering, though, as the latter confirmed the rumor and clarified the timestamp.

"So It was actually 2009 lol," she tweeted. "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."

In a follow-up note, she let her followers know, "I just didn’t want anybody thinking anything underage or creepy was happening." With 4 years separating her and Drizzy, some fans pointed out that she would've been 17 years old in 2008.

Well, that settles that!

Beyond reminiscing on past flings, Drizzy recently sent a birthday message to Zelek Murray, a 14-year-old fan battling brain cancer, and commended him for his "heart."  

"This was so heartfelt and touching because Drake took the time out to give my son words of encouragement and light during a time that’s been very dark for me and my family," Zelek’s mom Temeka later shared with The Shade Room. "The birthday has touched him in ways I’ll never be able to put into words."
