Why SZA Says Past Fling With Drake “Wasn’t Hot and Heavy”

Three years after Drake revealed on the 2020 track “Mr. Right Now” that he dated SZA in the past, the “Kill Bill” singer opened up about their short-lived romance and why it “wasn’t hot and heavy.”

All the stars didn’t align for SZA and Drake.

The “Kill Bill” singer looked back on her 2009 romance with the “Nice for What” rapper, sharing that it wasn’t really in God’s plan for them to get serious at the time since they were both “really young.”

“It wasn’t hot and heavy or anything,” she explained in her cover story with Rolling Stone. “It was like youth vibes. It was so childish.”

Having spent her younger years “needing that constant validation,” SZA believes she now has “more to offer” in a relationship after doing some growing up, though she admittedly is concerned that her ideal partner isn’t out there.

“I want to stunt like me when I meet the person I envision me being with,” shared the 33-year-old, who described herself as a “long-term bitch” when it came to affairs of the heart. “I envision them falling in love with me the way I am.”

She continued, “But I guess it’s like I have to release that idea. Maybe it’s because I don’t know if I’ll like the way I am later?”

SZA’s past fling with Drake was first made public in 2020, when the Canadian emcee, now 36, rapped on 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s track “Mr. Right Now” that he “used to date SZA back in ’08.”

SZA briefly dated Drake in 2009. She had turned 18 the previous November.

Shortly after the song’s release, SZA clarified that the it was “actually 2009” when the two dated.

“In this case a year of poetic rap license mattered,” she wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter), clarifying that she was past the legal age when they were an item. “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.”

SZA, who went on to collaborate with Drake on “Slime You Out” earlier this year, added at the time, “I just didn’t want anybody thinking anything underage or creepy was happening. Completely innocent. Lifetimes ago.”
