Who Is Drake’s New Boo Thang?
I root for Drake. And I’d like to see him happy. A large part of me thinks that Drake would like to be in a nice, committed relationship…eventually, you know when all the dust has settled. Seems like he tried to do that with Rihanna…twice.
But that didn’t work out.
Well, the Champagne Papi has moved on. Not only is he dating someone new, he’s taking her on trips with him overseas.
Drake was in Australia for the Future Music Festival this past weekend. And in addition to taking care of business on stage, he also made time for a little pleasure. The paparazzi snapped a few shots of the rapper and some young lady enjoying themselves by the pool.
So who is she?
Meet Bernice Burgos, a 34-year-old Puerto Rican model, bartender and video vixen. If you’ve been studying your music videos, you may have seen Bernice in J. Cole’s “Work Out” video or Rick Ross’ “Diced Pineapple” alongside Wale and Drake.
This is not the first time these two have been spotted together. Back in 2013, when she was tending bar at the Starlets strip club, she posted a picture of herself and Drake together, calling him her homeboy.
But based on these new pictures…things done changed.
Then, Drake shouted her out in the 2014 Romeo Santos song “Odio”:
No you- you look like Bernice and Yaris
But both put together, those are some girls that I know from back home
If you saw ’em you’d get it.
It’ll be interesting to see if this is indeed a full fledged relationship or…you know…just something of a more temporary nature.
Good luck to both she and Drake…because his track record hasn’t exactly been free of mess.
