Halle Berry on the artwork of Drake's new single: “I thought better of him”

Renowned actor and model Halle Berry has slammed Drake’s use of her picture in the artwork of his latest single, revealing he never asked her permission and took to social media to express her frustration. 

The Canadian rapper and singer’s latest song ‘Slime You Out’, features the contemporary R’n’B singer SZA and is the final single of his forthcoming album For All The Dogs. However, the artwork of this final closing single shows an image of Berry getting slimed at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in 2012, and the actor did not take kindly to this.

Drake had teased ‘Slimed Out’ with his fans on Instagram for an entire week before its release and tagged SZA when he finally shared the artwork. SZA also posted the image herself, tagging the rapper.

When Berry caught wind of Drake’s actions, she addressed him indirectly on social media, writing, “Sometimes you have to be the bigger guy, even if you’re a woman.” In the comments section, a fan asked the actor how she felt concerning the use of her face for the single.

In response to this repeatedly asked fan question, Berry responded, “Didn’t get my permission. That’s not cool. I thought better of him!” She continued, “Hence my post today. When people you admire disappoint you, you have to be the bigger person and move on!”

In other Drake news, the emcee (real name Aubrey Graham) has been forced to delay the release of his project from September 22nd to October 6th, much to the fans’ disappointment.

Explaining why, Drake took to social media, posting, “Okay, my dilemma I am faced with is I either cancel shows to finish the album or I complete the mission and drop the album before the last show.” He concluded, writing, “I owe you all these memories we are building, and anywhere we have missed to date, we will be spinning back for sure.”
