Drake stays true to his lyrics and buys the house next door

We’re not entirely sure of the reason, but Drake has bought the house next door to his Calabasas pad for a reported $2.85 million (£2.2 million), really living his Where Ya At lyric to the fullest.

On the track, from Future’s DS2 album, Drizzy says: “Buy the neighbor’s house if they complain about the noise”, and while it’s unclear whether this was actually the case or Drake maybe needed a guesthouse, or even just felt like it, it’s nice to imagine.

The home comes with everything you’d expect for that amount of money, including a swimming pool and a guesthouse (for what might be his guesthouse).

Drake’s just the latest celebrity to buy the house next door, following in the footsteps of the likes of Kylie Jenner – you know, the 19-year-old who already has two more houses than you.

Other celebs living in Drake’s Calabasas gated-community include Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, as well as the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Ozzy Osbourne, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears.

So while we don’t know the exact reason for Drake’s purchase, one thing is almost definitely true: Drake finally has a bigger pool than Kanye again.
