  • Um, who's Drake?
  • Who Cares!
  • Maybe he's just some random guy who walked into Apple HQ and said he's popular with this or that music fan-base and asked to sign a deal with the company. And maybe this rumor was actually floated by Apple to see if anyone actually knows who this guy is.
  • Dr. Drake? Ahahahaha!
  • LOL. Are they trying to NOT get me use the service. I won't pay to stream anyways but Drake is corny.
  • Why a DJ at all? Please, not Drake for sure! If a DJ used, I'll stick to Spotify!
