Drake Says He Doesn’t Talk To Nicki Minaj… But He DOES Have A Whole Lotta Love For Rihanna!

Has their friendship gone down in flames while he and Rihanna heat up?

We hate it when famous friends have a falling out!

But unfortunately, it looks like that’s how things are with Drake and Nicki Minaj. On Thursday night, the rapper was chatting with Zane Lowe from Beats 1 about his new album Views, and naturally the conversation turned toward the ladies in his life.

The songsmith revealed that, even though he and the Anaconda performer were once really close, they just don’t speak anymore:

“I don’t really talk to Nicki. Another person I have a lot of love for.”

The Canada native hinted the lost love between them probably has to do with that infamous feud with her main man Meek Mill, adding:

“She dealt with me how I would expect her to — with class. I always have respect and love for her. Unfortunately, we haven’t spoke.”

But the gorgeous gal isn’t the artist Drizzy admittedly has issues with. The 29-year-old confessed that he and Jay Z don’t always see eye-to-eye, even when it came to their cool collab on Pop Style:

“Jay didn’t really do a verse. I was just trying to get [Kanye West] on it first. Jay kinda just did my first few lines for me and that’s how we flexed it … It didn’t play out how I wanted it to go. Sometimes [Jay Z and I] just fall on opposite sides of the spectrum. It’s always mutual respect but sometimes it has to be from afar.”

And while the hitmaker has some rough relationships in the industry, he only raved about Rihanna, gushing:

“It wouldn’t be a record without Rihanna, would it? We do well as a team … Too Good came to fruition after we did Work. [I was like] I think I have one that would follow this one up really nicely. It was like a flawless victory when she sent it back. Every nuance, every cadence was perfect … That’s what makes the record.”

Sooooo sweet. But he didn’t only blab about business with the bad gal.

The Degrassi alum also explained he and the singer have a strong connection:

“We’re not forcing some story on people. A lot of the music and energy we have is genuine. We have a genuine energy.”

Ooooooooh la la! Does that mean those romance rumors are true after all?! Fingers crossed!
