The 33-year-old rapper full name Aubrey Drake Graham showed off his vast tattoo collection during his vacation in Barbados as he went shirtless on the beach.A majority of his body art definitely seems to be of his nearest and dearest including family, producer named 40, and mentor Lil Wayne but perhaps the most interesting pieces would be late singer Aaliyah and British singer Sade

Drake obviously did not know Aaliyah – full name Aaliyah Dana Haughton – personally as she died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001 but he has expressed an obsession with her throughout his entire career.

In August 2010 he even penned a letter to the late Are U That Somebody hitmaker on the ninth anniversary of her death  as he wrote: ‘Not only was I one of your biggest fans but I was truly in love with you.’

Drake obviously did not know Aaliyah – full name Aaliyah Dana Haughton – personally as she died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001 but he has expressed an obsession with her throughout his entire career, she is seen in March 2000

He has two portraits of the 61-year-old singer born in Ibadan, Nigeria – full name Helen Folasade Adu CBE AKA Sade- on the left side of his torso as he met her on his European tour and was completely mesmerized by her

He has made multiple references to her in his music and even sampled her cover of Isley Brothers hit At Your Best for his 2010 track Unforgettable.

Drake and his producer 40 were even named as executive producers for a posthumous Aaliyah album before it was called off two years later due to negative reactions about the project from her fans, family, and collaborator Timbaland.

The Canadian rapper also has not one but two tattoos dedicated to another female artist he admires in Sade.
