The Real “KiKi” From Drake’s 'In My Feelings' Reveals Herself & She's Definitely Riding For Him

“Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding?”

The whole world has been talking about this since the Canadian artist dropped his new album Scorpion.

The track “In My Feelings” that has everyone singing about a woman named Kiki has been analyzed and reanalyzed again. 

Fans have a way of finding out just about anything and when we reported earlier this week that the famous “Kiki” was former 106 & Park host Keshia Chante, we thought the search was over.

Drizzy and Keshia go way back to early teenage years and the time of Wheelchair Jimmy on Degrassi. She’s originally from Ottawa but moved to Drake’s native Toronto to kick-start her music career. They became close friends after that and he was apparently one of the first industry people she’d met at the time.



According to an old interview Chante did with Hot 97, her and the OVO star never dated and were never intimate. She mentioned a meaningless puppy-love kiss when they were teens but she swears their relationship never went beyond that.


Turns out, Keshia was not the woman Drake has been talking about this whole time.


New girl, 24-year-old K’yanna Barber from Oakland, CA, is the real “Kiki” and she definitely loves him.



Drake and K’yanna were seeing each other romantically back in 2016 but the relationship was short-lived. 




And based on her initials, it’s highly likely that K’yanna Barber is also the “KB” Drake sings about when he subs out “Kiki” for the initials “KB” in the lyrics directly afterwards. 

“KB, do you love me? Are you riding? Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me”

Kiki is loving all the attention the news is bringing her, her Twitter flooded with little hints at the identity of the real “Kiki.” In her Twitter bio she describes herself as “da only Kiki.” 

She also took to the social media platform to post this cheeky status captioned “KB do u love me?” 


Not only is she a fan of the OVO star, but she’s also come to his defense as people are bashing Aubrey over the news of his hidden child. Haters are out there calling him a deadbeat but Kiki knows what’s up.

She wrote, “Y’all really got him [messed] up, just because he doesn’t post the baby and announce to the public doesn’t mean he doesn’t take care of the child. A baby is not an accessory… Y’all wanted a “if you’re reading this he’s already born” album so bad.” 


Barber is right. There’s nothing wrong with him wanting to shield the child from the public eye and the limelight. It doesn’t mean he’s any less of a father than DJ Khaled who proudly brings Asahd along everywhere and shows the boy off like there’s no tomorrow. 

Everyone has their own parenting style. The public shouldn’t be so quick to jump at Drake’s throat for the way he’s gone about things.

Nonetheless, we can all rest easy tonight knowing the real Kiki was always former flame K’yanna Barber.  


And y’all can stop harassing former 106 & Park host Keshia Chante now. 


Do you think K’yanna Barber is the real Kiki?
