Looks like Kanye West has nothing to worry about after all. It turns out the real ‘Keke’ from Drake’s hit single ‘In My Feelings’ is not his wife Kim Kardashian.

The young lady who is the inspiration behind the song is Oakland resident K’yanna Barber. And she is finally speaking out. The 24-year-old has known the rapper for a little over two years.

During a recent interview, K’yanna, reveals that she was surprised to hear her name. She says:

“I was kind of surprised by it myself when I heard it. I was sitting in the living room with my son, my brother, my mom. We was just listening to the album like everybody else. You know, it’s Drake. He dropped new music. You listen to it.”

She dismissed the thought that the single was about her when she first heard her name. But, when Drake mentioned her initials, KB, she knew right away who he was referring to.

“When we hear ‘KB’ that’s when my mom started going crazy because that’s my actual initials.”

K’yanna was asked if whether she loves Drake, of course referencing the hook to the song. She replies, “I feel like he knows the answer.”

Welp! There you have it folks.
