The lines that reference Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz are obvious, but did you know that Drake also had Nicki Minaj in mind when he penned “Un-thinkable (I’m Ready)”? Drizzy knows just how much you love hearing about his love for Minaj, so he opened up on the inspiration behind the hit single he wrote for Alicia Keys.
In a recent interview with MTV, Drizzy says his crush on Nicki Minaj inspired him to pen the song. Oh, and of course, the widely publicized relationship between Alicia Keys and Swizz Beat made it easier to write the song for Keys.
“It is [about Minaj], I’m not gonna lie. The concept came from a conversation that we had, or conversations we have. I wrote it based off two things: Number one, based off that, and then two, based off Alicia and Swizz and their situation, and it just seemed fitting. It was like the perfect concept,” he says in the interview.
“I’ve always really, actually, really had a crush on her, always really loved her, and she’s always just looked at me as, like, her little brother.”
