A Drake Lyric for Every (insta) Occasion

Hey y’all!

If you’re reading this then I’m sure you’re aware that Drake’s album, Scorpion, came out on June 29th. ( I tried so hard to make an “if you’re reading this it’s too late” joke right there but I just couldn’t make it work). I was going to write a full review of the album since it’s all the buzz right now, but I didn’t think anyone would truly want to sit here and read what I thought about all 25 songs and I didn’t really want to write that. Instead, I present to you a list of captions from the album perfect for any Instagram occasion. After all, Drake lyrics and Instagram captions go together like mac and cheese.
