Drake’s Letter To Aaliyah

Drake’s Letter To Aaliyah


Aaliyah’s 9th anniversary since the tragic accident was yesterday. Drake has tremendous love for Aaliyah, he even has a portrait hung up in his apartment of of her. Drake wrote a letter to Aaliyah to share his thoughts to RapRadar.com.

Dear Dana,

I’ve never lost a parent, a friend, or a lover but I will never forget this day for the rest of my life. I remember getting the news that you had passed and it connected with my heart like a clean shot from Muhammad Ali. I was crushed. Not only was I one of your biggest fans but I was truly in love with you. I loved the way you carried yourself, the way you dressed, the confidence with which you addressed passion and relationships in your music. I said to myself that even if we never met, I wanted a woman in my life just like you. I am pained that we will never get to connect now that music ended up being my career path. But you should know, we all listen to you everyday and we remain inspired and moved by all that you’ve given the world. I hope I make the right life choices so I can end up in heaven where I know you rest your head. I’ll continue to make music in your honor until the day we finally meet. Dinner’s on me!

Love you always and forever,

  • Drakeo

    Yo….What can I say…” Deep “. I pretty much felt the same way the day I found out. To tell you all the truth…” I cried myself to sleep that night.” I couldn’t fathom the hole I had in my heart…As a fan…friend…like if she was a part of my life. Matter fact..she was a part of my life. She was a part in all our lives. Believe this… ” Dana, I’ll be front row when we meet again.”

    I’ll always have you in my heart..

    P.S. Mad props ” Drizzy “

  • Drake reminds me of Aaliyah alot with his music. Drake is like the male version of Aaliyah same type of music. Thats probably why I love him and his music & I can relate to the things Aaliyah and Drake talks about. EVERYTHING they say

  • Rubia90

    oh wow, this is so beautiful so deep and meaningful. i always wonder what was the connection between drake and aaliyah , truth is he always had such a great connection with her and am amazed by this and i love every word he wrote on this letter. Dinner on me !( loved that) Drake your such a wonderful person,

    Drake has nerve trying to cash in on Aaliayh, nigga you ain’t know her like that. Disrespectful to her and her family tryin’ to front. You from a jewish neighborhood. 

    • Fantasia

      what does that even mean like you know how that man really felt about her  , its iganrent people like you that pull other people back in lifeee dead serious . 

      • fantasia


  • angelo

    If there is a connection, there’s a connection. I didn’t personally know Aaliyah either but I felt it when she passed, and still do. So Endvervorgreen what he’s feeling is real. Props to Drizzy.
