The song of the summer is a hotly contested subject in the office. Nora is a big proponent of Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop,” Leah is all about Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” and I’m strongly in favor of Migos ft. Drake‘s “Versace.”
Seriously, listen to it. It’s amazing. And now it’s got a whole new amazing layer of significance because we’re pretty sure it means Drake is going to buy Gianni Versace’s Miami mansion when it goes on the chopping block for $25 million this September.
In case you can’t tell from the song’s name, Drake is preeeeetty into Versace. The chorus is basically just him and Migos saying the brand’s name over and over again. But the rapper’s verse also seems to be rife with references to the famous Versace mansion.
Let’s take a look at the lyrics, shall we?
Versace, Versace, Medusa head on me like I’m ‘Luminati
This is a gated community, please get the f*** off the property
Rap must be changing cause I’m at the top and ain’t no one on top of me
N***** be wanting a verse for a verse, but man that’s not a swap to me
Drowning in compliments, pool in the backyard that look like Metropolis
I think I’m sellin’ a million first week, man I guess I’m a optimist
Born in Toronto but sometimes I feel like Atlanta adopted us
What the f*** is you talkin’ ’bout? Saw this shit comin’ like I had binoculars
Boy, Versace, Versace, we stay at the mansion when we in Miami
The pillows’ Versace, the sheets are Versace, I just won a Grammy
I’ve been so quiet, I got the world like “What the f*** is he planning?”
Could that last lyric mean, maybe, just maybe, Drizzy is planning on buying the mansion?
Even though $25 million sounds like a lot of money, it’s actually a steal: The mansion, which is now known as Casa Casuarina, was originally put on the market for $125 million, according to Telegraph. C’mon, October’s Very Own could totally pool together $25 mill. And think how much it would piss Kanye off.
