Friends — how many us have them?
Plenty. But there are certain qualities that make someone bestie material: loyalty, humor and being supportive all top the list. As I thought about what makes a great friend, it dawned on me that “October’s Very Own” is the pinnacle of #baegoals. That was until last week. Drake broke hearts worldwide by cutting his beard. Do you hear that sound? it is the sound of thousands of women putting him back into the friendzone. He has all the qualities of a best friend, but don’t count him out just yet and here’s why:
On “No New Friends,” he told us he is dedicated to the team he has.
Drake loves to clap for his friends. Can’t you just imagine him congratulating you on all your major milestones? I am going back to school for my masters degree just so I can invite Drake to my graduation.
3) Sense of Humor

Have you seen his dance moves?
4) Drama Free
A hot headed partner could be a liability but with Drizzy you won’t have to worry about this. “Diss me, and you’ll never hear a reply for it.”
5) He can be vulnerable
Due to Mr. Graham’s willingness to share his feelings, don’t you feel compelled to do the same? We all have our moments when we want to let our guard down. Let Drizzy help. If Drake was your boo he could write you a dope song as cry over, anything.
6) But He isn’t a pushover
Although you don’t want a warlord, you certainly don’t want a wimp. We all need someone who can stand up for us and have our back (to back) when needed.
Everyone loves Raymond? Nope, everyone loves Champagne papi!
Aubrey has this amazing talent where he is able to remain friends with folks even after he does horrible things like steal your girlfriend (or so I’ve heard). You know what that means for you? More VIP passes.
8) Embraces His “Flaws”
He knows he is considered “soft” but he doesn’t care. This is important. If you have someone that hasn’t accepted themselves in areas you happen to excel in, resentment can build. Relationship killer. Keep singing, keep shining.
Started from the bottom. Now? We’re here.
10) Team Player
Sometimes you need a friend that can take the “L” for the team — why not let it be Drake? Ok you may not want him after this but team playing is still good.
Drake isn’t the bestie, he’s bae. With or without the beard. #heyboo.
