Even their breakup, and then the rapper’s lyrics which seem to have been generated from his real-life created buzz in social circles. It happened when Jennifer started dating Rodriguez after breaking up with Drake in February 2017.

What did Drake say about Jennifer Lopez?

Even though Jennifer went into a relationship with the former baseball player, that did not stop the rapper from remembering a couple of months he shared with the actress. 

In the album “More Life,” launched in March 2017, there was a song named “Free Smoke.” It was in the song lyrics that the rapper talked about his real feelings towards the actress-singer Jennifer Lopez.

The lyrics were“I drunk text JLo / Old numbers so I bounce back.”

According to the lyrics, Drake did not have a new contact number for Lopez. Therefore, his drunk texts used to bounce back. It does not matter how often he used to drunk text her. However, one thing is sure that if the texts went to the right number, her then-boyfriend Alex Rodriguez would definitely not have liked it.

Where are Jennifer and Alex Rodriguez today?

A-Rod and Jennifer started dating in February or March 2017. Two years later, Alex popped the question of marriage to JLo, to which she said ‘yes.’

Then the couple went into marriage planning and were all set to get married in the fall of 2020. But, as fate would have it planned, the COVID-19 pandemic halted their marriage. The date of their marriage kept getting delayed, and with it, problems between the couple also kept on increasing. Which then eventually led to their breakup in April 2021.
