Drake, you are such a marshmallowy teddy bear! Everytime we see that photo of you hugging your bubbe, we leak a little tear from our eye and text our moms! You also apparently have a fixation on forbidden love/friend tension. "What If I Kissed You," a reference track written for another R&B singer (Lloyd? Bieber?), is the G-rated version of "Unthinkable"—dude toned down the implied sex vibes he gave to Alicia Keys and cooed a tune 13-year-old girls will sing in their minds the first time they ever go to the movies with a boy and want a smooch. Total DeGrassi material, with Stargate on wistful beats. Hopefully he wrote this about Nicki Minaj.
