All the Subtle J.Lo References in Drake's New Album 'More Life'

And the not-so-subtle ones.

Back in December, photos of Drake and J.Lo getting cozy surfaced, and thus "DraLo" was born. After that, they were seen dancing close, and they even brought in the New Year together. But as we know (especially in terms of Drizzy romances), all good things must come to an end. The two have been on their own since February, but Drake just dropped some hints that maybe he's still not over Miss Jenny from the Block.

Drake released his highly anticipated album/playlist, More Life last night. Fans assumed a J.Lo feature could have came out of their relationship, but instead discovered the album was filled with tiny odes to Jennifer.

Exhibit A: He wastes no time and mentions her by name on the very first track, "Free Smoke." The rapper suggests that he sends her messages while under the influence, but they don't go through because she's changed her number. He raps, "I drunk text J.Lo / Old number, so it bounce back."

Exhibit B: Next, his song, "Teenage Dream," is clearly a sample of Jennifer's 1999 hit "If You Had My Love." And while his song doesn't directly use any of Jen's vocals, the song's melody is so well known that it speaks for itself as a reference.

Exhibit C: And now to put the icing on the cake! Back in December when DraLo was in full swing, a video of the pair grinding on each other leaked. The unreleased song they danced to appeared to have both of their voices on it, but when the track was finally published on More Life as "Get it Together," Jen's vocals are swapped for another female artist, Jorja Smith. Was it too painful for Drizzy to keep J.Lo's actual voice on the album? Fans have a number of theories.

Other fans believe that the entire "relationship" was a ploy for Drake to use Jennifer's intellectual property.

And how does J.Lo feel about appearing as a reoccurring theme in her ex's new playlist? She hasn't commented. She was spotted supporting her new bae and Yankees player, Alex Rodriguez, at his spring training game the day of the album drop.
