The 34-year-old released his follow-up to 2018’s Scary Hours EP with the three-track Scary Hours 2 with a song that nods to West.
"Yeah, I probably go link to Yeezy / I need me some Jesus / But as soon as I start confessin’ my sins, he wouldn’t believe us," he sang on "Wants and Needs" with Lil Baby.
While Kardashian was not mentioned by name, many fans took the lyric to mean that she allegedly hooked up with Drake. West and Drake have been feuding since 2018 when rumors circulated that Drake and Kardashian had been dating.
"Kiki, do you love me?" Drake sang on "In my Feelings" at the time, which is a nickname Kardashian’s sisters often call her.
"The fact that there’s people making rumors or thinking you f**ked my wife and you’re not saying nothing and you’re carrying it like that, that don’t sit well with my spirit," West said at the time; Kardashian denied the rumors.
Meanwhile, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and the "Fade" hitmaker are reportedly divorcing. Kardashian is said to have filed for divorce on Friday, February 19, after almost seven years of marriage. They share children North, 7, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 21 months, together and will have to "fight" out custody arrangements in court.
Kim and Kanye have not publicly commented on Drake’s new track nor has the "Laugh Now Cry Later" singer commented either.

Some users joked that West will be shocked to hear about the alleged hook-up after the divorce.
Drake Waiting For Kim
"Look at this, we created this. This didn't exist before we were here," Drake said in the clip.
While there may be some doubt, many fans are convinced that Drake must have dissed West in the track.
Not Everyone Is Convinced
Drake: *Makes a song about repenting his sins and potentially wanting to reach out to Kanye as part of that— YENSPIRATION (@ThatswhyIFuckw1) March 6, 2021
Yall: HE OBVIOUSLY IS REFERENCING FUCKING KIM, TMZ RUMOURS ALWAYS TRUE
Some fans interpreted the track as a song about "repenting his sins and potentially wanted to reach out to Kanye."
Thinking about the Drake "Wants and Needs" lyrics. I'm not seeing the same Drake/Kim implications everyone else is. And leaning pretty neutral on the Kanye line. Feels more like a harmless acknowledgement than diss to me, having listened a few times.— Watching the Throne (@KanyePodcast) March 5, 2021
Other fans saw it as a "harmless" nod rather than a diss at West. .
