Last weekend, Canadian rapper Drake released 2 new tracks as a part of his EP shivery Hours … and Muslim fans all around the world completely lost it over when Drake says InshAllah.
The 31-year-old singer, actor, record producer, and songwriter used the word – that is Arabic for ‘God Willing’ – in his song ‘Diplomatic Immunity‘.
Drake beautifully managed to rhyme the word inshAllah with Al Jazeera and Shakira. The lyrics of the song goes as follows:
“The TV playin’ Al Jazeera
Inshallah, I hope the mission keeps on gettin’ clearer
Whenever, wherever, OVO will always be together like Shakira…”
Naturally, Muslim ladies went into a whole meltdown, fangirling over the actual fact that Drake said one of the most common Arabic words out there.
Fans Reaction on Twitter
