Drake Touts New Tattoo of Himself… With The Beatles?

Drake literally got a tattoo of himself, standing in front of The Beatles... yes, I know

Here’s a riddle for you: what does a jack-o-lantern, Aaliyah (the singer), The CN Tower (aka the Toronto Space Needle), Denzel Washington, a flaming skull, a pair of praying hands (one emoji and one realistic looking), Rihanna eating ice cream, Steph Curry, and Kevin Durant all have in common?

These are all things tattooed on Drake’s body…  yes you read that correctly.

Of all these questionable tattoos though, none is nearly quite as bold, or perhaps narcissistic as his newest piece on his right forearm.

Drake, the pop singer who’s been putting out hits for nearly 2 full decades, decided to pay homage to his own records that he’s beaten in the music industry by tattooing The Beatles walking in ‘Abbey Road’ formation on his forearm… with himself looking leading the pack ahead of John Lennon.

Some will say that Drake thinks too highly of himself, but the stats over his career may say otherwise.

Recently, he’s broken a lot of records made by the Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Band themselves. In July of last year, he placed 7 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 from the same album, a record previous held by The Beatles (5).

Three months later, he also broke the record for the most No. 1 songs in the Billboard Hot 100 in a single year with 9, beating the band by 1 song.

And to top it all off, he just passed them for the second-most number 1 songs in the history of the Top 100.

Regardless of your opinion, it’s a bit of a bold move to compare yourself to someone so iconic, but hey. According to him, he has more slaps than The Beatles
