On Wednesday, February 15, Drake admitted he prefers Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi during an Instagram video call with the American streamer Speed. The rapper also acknowledged that 'it's Messi's moment right now' as the 35-year-old Argentine helped his country win their third FIFA World Cup title this year.
During their video call iShowSpeed asked Drake to pick between Ronaldo and Messi, and the five-time Grammy award winner replied, "For me, probably Ronaldo to be honest. But I know that’s probably not gonna go over well. I know it’s Messi’s moment right now, but for me, I’ve just always been a Ronaldo fan. I’m like you."

Both Ronaldo and Messi have dominated the football world for over 15 years and now the 38-year-old Portuguese plays for the Saudi Arabian club, Al-Nassr while the Argentina star is playing for the French club, Paris Saint-Germain with his contract to expire at the end of the season.

In 2022, Drake featured in Future's new song called I'M ON ONE and in the second verse, he mentioned both Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Drake sang, " I'm just all about my goals like I'm Messi, what... Bein' messy, s**t do not impress me, what... Take her to see Cristiano, f**k her in that Benz Viano... Champions League s**t, there'll be a driver for you on arrival."
