Drake reveals Alicia Keys' 'Unthinkable (I'm Ready)' is about NIcki Minaj

Alicia Keys' hit 'Unthinkable (I'm Ready)' talks about love, and not necessarily a readily acceptable one. Long rumoured to be about Keys' own life, the song is in part about Drake's.

Drake recently told, "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 [her husband] Swizz and their situation, and it just seemed fitting. It was like the perfect concept."

Drake may have felt compelled to come clean since Minaj let the cat out of the bag saying, "You know what else he told me he wrote for me? The Alicia Keys song 'I'm Ready'. I happen to love the song. I never told anyone that; I hope he won't get mad that I said that."

Drake may not mind. He certainly didn't mind telling MTV2's Sucker Free Countdown he had feelings for Minaj. "I've always really, actually, had a crush on her, always really loved her, and she's always just looked at me as, like, her little brother."
