At the top of the list, Drake stated he’s single because he loves his freedom. He explained, “I love my space. I love my work and I love my routine, and for me to break that for somebody it would just have to be like a really special person that fits into that puzzle and that is supportive of the things I’m doing.”
At the same time, he needs more than just understanding. Touching on the need for that special someone to share his appreciation for music, he explained, “It has to be someone that has taste in music, it has to be somebody, you know, that I get along with so much to the point when we’re separate I’m feeling like I can’t function properly without their presence.”
As for anyone who has come close, we couldn’t help but think Drake was referencing Rihanna when he stated, “I have come across it a few times. I’ve yet to be hold on to it, for whatever reason.” (Find additional candidates here.)
Ultimately, it sounds like Drake is looking for a first mate-type of love because he’s not planning on slowing down. He added, “I’m the captain of a ship and I look behind me and I see a lot of people on board. And, full steam ahead. That’s just kind of how I have to keep rocking for now. And hopefully, I can find someone that can just stand beside me at the wheel and help me steer while we keep the journey going as opposed to me having to pull over and stop because that person is getting sea sick.”
