Is The Weeknd Dissing Drake on 'Lost in the Fire'?

  /  01.11.2019

The Weeknd’s new collaboration with Gesaffelstein has some fans wondering if he’s taking a shot at Drake.

On “Lost in the Fire,” The Weeknd seemingly sings about a hiding a child, a potential subliminal about Drake’s secret son. “And I just want a baby with the right one / ‘Cause I could never be the one to hide one,” he sings.

However, some fans were adamant that the line was wrong. Apple Music originally listed the lyrics as “‘Cause I could never be the one to hurt one,” but the streaming service later modified them to say “hide.”

The music video for “Lost in the Fire,” released earlier today, seems to confirm that The Weeknd is saying “hide” instead of “hurt.” In the clip, he holds up his hand and covers his face while reciting the line in question.

Drake is the father of a 14-month-old son named Adonis, whom he shares with French artist Sophie Brussaux. Pusha-T was first to expose Drake’s “secret son” on his diss track “The Story of Adidon.”

Drake and The Weeknd are no stranger to collaborations. The Toronto natives most recently shared the stage at 2017’s OVO Fest, where Drake announced a potential OVO and XO collaborative project.

“I don’t want to do this to you on stage,” he told his fellow Canadian. “But I feel like that OVOXO project has to happen at some point. I just want to say that.”

In November 2016, Abel spoke about his friendship with Drake. “He came in as my big bro and showed the world what I could do,” he told Beats 1. “From then on, he’s always been supporting me and I’ve always been supporting him. Behind the scenes, we’re still very close, but it’s cool that the world can see us doing our own thing. OVO/XO will always be there.”
