Some argue that Drake, himself, is a mood. His very essence can be used to describe a state of mind. “I’m feeling very Drake today,” one might say after a quiet evening spent indoors pining over love lost. Or an individual might find his or herself feeling like Champagne Papi when the turn-up is especially real after one of Serena’s matches or any other event that requires the liquor-fueled congregation of Toronto-bred woes. But when you’re current mood isn’t Drake, there’s still a Drake song out there to get you through whatever you’re going through. The 6 God has you covered.
Mood: I’m tryna chill with bae but they won’t stop scrolling through social media
