‘Every Artist Has at Least One of These’: Muni Long Claims She Ghosted Drake and Potential Collaboration Because of Jealous Boyfriend, Fans React 

It may seem like singer Muni Long blew up overnight. However, the songwriter has spent years co-writing hits for some of the music industry’s most prominent artists before scoring her own big single, thanks to the TikTok certified record “Hrs & Hrs.” 

Earlier this week, she hopped on the platform where she revealed that she had the chance to work with Grammy Award-winning rapper and actor Drake, but a “jealous” former lover crashed those plans.

The “Build a Bae” singer appears in the Wednesday, April 6 post, applying what seems to be lip balm with a caption overhead that read, “That one time in 2008 I missed out on a Drake feature because my bf at the time found out he was pulling up to the studio and flew into a jealous rage so I chickened out and quit responding to his texts.” 

Fans appeared stunned by the alleged claim but didn’t spare a minute to send their support to the burgeoning star, including fellow musician Gene Noble, who wrote, “Yooooo this that shit!! I bet every artist has at least one of these stories… I know I have several.” Another person commented, “Damn! Maybe it wasn’t the right timing! Look at you now though. Still made it to the finish line without that! You did that! ” 

Still, online users told her not to give up on dreams of someday collaborating with the “God’s Plan” emcee, including a third person who said,  “MUNI!! Omg it’s ok that drake feature is coming real soon sis.”

Muni initially spoke about meeting the Toronto star during an interview with Apple Music 1’s Ebro Darden in January 2022. The 33-year-old shared that they connected during the making of the rapper’s 2009 breakout mixtape “So Far Gone” after he heard her cover of “Best I Ever Had.”

“I recorded a cover of ‘Best I Ever Had’ where I played it on guitar, sang it instead of rapped it,” she said. “That went viral so much that Drake reached out to me, and he was like, ‘Yo, I love what you did with the song.’ He gave me his number; we’re talking. Mind you; I’m just out of high school.”

She added, “And I was watching him on ‘Degrassi’ when I was in middle school and high school. So I’m like, ‘Oh my God, this is Aubrey Graham. This is amazing! Wheelchair Jimmy.’ I remember talking to him back then, and he’s like, ‘Yeah, I’m an actor. I’m trying to get into music. I did this mixtape for Valentine’s Day. Didn’t really take it serious. People love it. I’m singing. Lil Wayne wants to sign me.’”
