The real Kiki from Drake’s “In My Feelings” speaks out

K’yanna Barber spoke with Power 106 FM about her place in Drake’s smash hit song.

October 24, 2018

K’yanna Barber, a.k.a the "Kiki" named on Drake's song "In My Feelings," sat down for an interview with Power 106 FM to discuss her newfound fame.


Internet sleuths have already identified the Oakland dancer and rapper as the "Kiki" Drake refers to on "In My Feelings" when he raps "Kiki, do you love me?". Barber confirmed in her interview that Drake is directly mentioning her, as he uses both her nickname "Kiki" and her initials "KB" in another line. Barber says that she met Drake through Oakland rapper Kamaiyah, who she used to dance for before transitioning to her own rap career.

Barber's appearance may help settle the conspiracy that "Kiki" actually refers to Kanye West's wife, Kim Kardashian – Kanye himself took Drake to task for the alleged slight in a series of Instagram videos, and Snoop Dogg cheered Drake on for what he thought was a diss aimed at Kanye.
