We’re still in that weird time where it’s still kinda hot outside, yet it’s raining pumpkin spice everything. We’ve stashed our bikinis but still rock our white jeans. But if you’re still hitting up your summer fling, you’re likely Draking, and we’re here to help.
What the hell is Draking, you might ask?
It’s time to educate yourself on generation Z slang at its finest. According to Urban Dictionary (yes, the most scholarly source there is, we know), Draking lovingly refers to expressing one’s emotions in an over-the-top weepy manner, à la everybody’s favorite Canadian rapper, Drake.
Now, don’t get us wrong: There’s absolutely no shame in expressing your feelings, but Draking refers to those late-night moments when that hotline bling, but it’s you calling up your summer fling.
Here are all the signs you’re Draking hard, as told by lyrics from the man himself:
1“I realize I waited too long, but please don’t move on/You don’t need no one else.”
2“Mixing vodka and emotions, tapping into your emotions.”
Draking and drinking don’t mix, fam. No matter what your friends say.
3“Damn, is it the fall?/Time for me to revisit the past, there’s women to call.”
4“I never had you, although I would be glad to/I’d probably go and tattoo, your name on my heart.”
5“Thought of things that you shoulda said, said things that you shouldn’t say.”
6“When the party’s over, just don’t forget me.”
7“Summer’s mine/I swear I said about a hundred times, I’ma need it back.”
Put the rosé away, and bring out a bottle of Cabernet.
