DRAKE's New Tattoo Upsets Some BEATLES Fans
Several months after Drake snatched the Billboard Hot 100 record from The Beatles for most hits in one calendar year, the rapper celebrated the monumental feat by getting tattooed anew.
His latest ink features the rock 'n' roll lads – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr in their iconic Abbey Road album art. But the tattoo depicts a fifth man - the "In My Feelings" hitmaker himself as he walks ahead of the legendary English band. He sure took the lyrics "got more slaps than the Beatles" a little too seriously.
Of course, it didn't sit well with avid fans of the Fab Four who found it disrespectful.
I love Drake and I always have. But his new tattoo is just straight up disrespectful to the Beatles. And you don't disrespect the Beatles.— polo pajamas (@TaylorJoecks) August 13, 2019
Drake’s Beatles tattoo makes me mad af.. how can you disrespect the greats like that my guy 🤬— Isaac Silva (@SlimeySilva) August 12, 2019
I don’t get why u have to disrespect other artists when u become successful. #Drake let’s see u in 50 f’ years! For him to even get a tattoo of The #Beatles means they r still so relevant. pic.twitter.com/qn0nXhzFzL— Caren w/a ~ C ~ (@Caren329) August 11, 2019
Btw, Drake only beats the Beatles in top 10 hits 35 to 34.— Sean Magguilli (@_ScooterBoy) August 12, 2019
In number 1 hits, Beatles are up 20 to 6.
Take the dumbass tattoo off your arm and the smirk off your face.
Drake got a tattoo of himself as the 5th Beatle on Abbey Road after he surpassed their Billboard record.— ellie ashton ✌ (@ellieatmidnight) August 10, 2019
In no realm of the universe, will Drake ever live up to the influential phenomenon that was The Beatles.
Sit the fuck down, Aubrey. You aggorant douche.
What do you think? Was the tattoo in bad taste or was Drake just trying to pay tribute to The Beatles?
