Drake spoke in Arabic in his latest track. This is how Twitter reacted

Social media users pick apart Canadian star's pronunciation, and speculate that his line may be an attempt to woo singer Rihanna

As a rapper, singer, actor and entrepreneur, Aubrey Drake Graham, commonly known as Drake, already has many strings to his bow.

But the Canadian star is always trying to add to his repertoire - particularly when it comes to singing and rapping in different languages. 

On the 2018 track Mia, Drake sang entirely in Spanish. Just last week, in a song titled Greece, the versatile artist tried his hand at rapping in French.

His latest multi-lingual effort, which came in the form of an Arabic line in a track released on Monday, sent Twitter into a frenzy.

“Arabic ting tells me I look like Yusuf, look like Hamza. Habibti please, ana akeed, inti wa ana ahla,” Drake raps in the song Only You featuring British artist Headie One. The Arabic line roughly translates to “I’m sure you and I look better together.”

Some Twitter users were impressed by Drake’s pronunciation.
