In an Instagram post made on Friday (September 15), the Monster’s Ball star posted a quote on a pink square that seemed to imply she wasn’t a fan of the Scorpion rapper’s latest promotional efforts. “Sometimes you have to be the bigger guy … even if you’re a woman!” she wrote.
In the comments section, a fan asked what she’d thought of the “Slime You Out” cover art, and Berry wasted no time in sharing her thoughts.
“Didn’t get my permission,” she wrote. “That’s not cool I thought better of him !” She then followed up that comment with another one, adding: “Hence my post today. When people you admire disappoint you you have to be the bigger person and move on !”

For the “Slime You Out” cover art, Drake opted to use a 2012 photo of Berry being slimed at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. The SZA-assisted single will land on Drizzy’s For All the Dogs album, the release date for which is now October 6.
After being announced earlier this week, the BNYX and Noah “40” Shebib co-produced single hit streaming services at noon ET on Friday (September 15).
The 6 God is back in his R&B bag and shines with his second verse where he uses the months of the year to seamlessly weave his stream of consciousness.
“Yeah, January, you pretend to see life clearly, yearly/ February is the time that you put the evil eye and the pride aside/ For the fantasy of gettin’ married, very scary/ March got you already second guessin’ titles/ April, Spring is here and just like a spring you start to spiral/ May brings some warmer days,” he raps.
Drake then shouts out Quality Control Music and brags about how he’s brought in millions of dollars for the label between collabs and tours.
“Shout to QC, pretty sure I made P Ms like it’s past noon/ All I really know is Ws and Ms, life lookin’ like a bathroom/ All I really know is M bags, like I drove through and ordered fast food,” Drizzy rhymes.
