Rapper Drake’s Song Says He’ll “Fly You Out to Greece”

It's just what Greece needs right now, with worries whether there will be much of a summer tourism season in the wake of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic and hotels not opening until June or even July but the country got a big boost from rapper Drake.

The Canadian singer, better known as Aubrey Drake Graham, is one of the most famous and richest rappers in the world, with 40 million Instagram fans and 115 million followers on Twitter who hang on his every word – which now includes a song saying that, “Come with me, fly you out to Greece.”

After the release of his fifth mixtape Dark Lane Demo Tapes, the fourth richest rapper in the world, according to Forbes, previewed some new tunes in an Instagram Live session, including one with that lyric.

The track’s title is unconfirmed and it's unclear if this track will appear on the album Drizzy announced will drop this summer, media reports said, but if so that could bolster Greece tourism which relies in part on celebrities coming to the country.
