Drake has stirred some emotions with his new The Beatles-inspired ink.
The rapper recently set a new record by having the most number of top 10 songs in Billboard’s ‘Hot 100’ list within a single calendar year. Drake’s 12-time accomplishment surpassed that of The Beatles, who had 11 top 10 songs in 1964.
Drake marked his achievement permanently by putting The Beatles’ iconic Abbey Road album on his left forearm.
While the original album cover shows John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr walking on Abbey Road, Drake decided to switch things up by adding himself to the lineup, such that he is depicted walking ahead of the band members.
The tattoo has outraged fans of The Beatles, who have called Drake out for placing himself in front of the iconic band, which they say has “more number one singles” than him.
Twitter users have also shunned the brazen move by reminding the rapper of the achievements that The Beatles has garnered, which appear extensive when compared to Drake’s.
