Drake has made no secret of his persistent respect for the late singer Aaliyah and he revealed a second tattoo that he has had done in honour of the Grammy nominated artist.
Drake’s new ink, which sits on his rib cage, is also a homage to his home town area of Toronto, Canada, too.
The picture shows a large 416, which is the area code of his home city, down his side but it is only partially shaded in so that the four also looks like a one.
Aaliyah’s birthday is January 16th or 1-16, which the tattoo clearly shows.
It is the second permanent ink tribute that Drake has on his body after he had the singers face plastered on his back.
The black and white photo came shortly after Drake announced that he is planning to release a posthumous album with Aaliyah.
As well as performing some duets on the album he will also be the executive producer behind it.
The surprising move has not been well received by Missy Elliot and Timbaland, who have publicly said that they should be approached if he intends to go ahead with the project.
Timbaland told Power 105.1: “I know they’re trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if he do it, it should be with me and him and Missy.
“I don’t know what’s going on, but the proper to do that would be for me, him and Missy to be all on the record. I produce it.
”But to put it on his album or to put it on his record or whatever, however it be, it would just not be right.”
