Drake is causing a stir on social media. After debuting shiny combed-back hair, fans say he’s giving R&B soul legend Barry White a run for his money.
The “Honestly, Nevermind” rapper is no stranger to switching things up. After rocking straight-back braids for most of the year, Drake has combed out his locks and slicked back his long hair into a look that he doesn’t have a name for yet. While posing with his curls pushed back over a casino table, Aubrey asked his 120 million Instagram followers to give the new hairdo a name.
“Give this guy a name…, Drake wrote.”
