Did The Weeknd Diss Drake On New Song ‘Lost In The Fire’?

The Weeknd’s collaboration with Gesaffelstein, titled “Lost in the Fire,” dropped on Friday and it didn’t take long for fans to realize it’s another banger. But while everyone was taking in the new record, it didn’t take long for some eyebrows to raise.

That is because, within the very first verse, there are some lyrics that fans interpreted as a direct shot at Drake.

In 2018, there was the highly-publicized feud between Drake and Pusha-T which resulted in Drizzy being exposed for having a secret child. So when you take a quick look at the lyrics from “Lost in the Fire” you can immediately see why they could be viewed as another shot at the “In My Feelings” rapper.

They read:

And I just want a baby with the right one
(I just want a baby with the right)
‘Cause I could never be the one to hide one
(I could never be the one to hide)

Alrighty, then.

So what do you think: are the lyrics just a big coincidence or is The Weeknd taking aim at Drake with his new song? You be the judge and share your thoughts in the comments section below.

The Weeknd – “Lost in the Fire” Audio & Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I wanna f*ck you slow with the lights on (Lights on, lights on, lights on)
You’re the only one I’ve got my sights on (Sights on, sights on, sights on)
Type of sex you could never put a price on (Price on, price on, price on)
I’ll take it off, you’re the one I’ll roll the dice on (Dice on, dice on, dice on)
And I just want a baby with the right one
(I just want a baby with the right—)
‘Cause I could never be the one to hide one
(I could never be the one to hide—)

[Pre-Chorus]

And we lost a lot of things in the fire
So it took a year for me to find out (Find out, find out)

I’m tired of being home alone (Home alone)
I used to have a girl a day (Girl a day)
Yeah, I want you to stay (I want you to stay, hey)
You said you might be into girls (Into girls)
You said you’re going through a phase (Through a phase)
Keepin’ your heart safe (Keepin’ your heart safe, oh)
Well, baby, you can bring a friend (Bring a friend)
She can ride on top your face (Top your face)
While I f*ck you straight (While I f*ck you straight, yeah)

And we lost a lot of things in the fire (Fire)
So it took a year for me to find out (Find out, find out)
