In the world of music and sports, unexpected collaborations often take center stage, and this time, it’s no different. The release of Drake’s latest hit single, “Wick Man,” sent fans into a frenzy on social media. While the song itself was enough to get everyone talking, it was a surprising name in the credit list that truly caught people’s attention.
Among the credited co-writers of “Wick Man” was none other than ‘K. De Bruyne.’ This revelation immediately led to wild speculation on various social media platforms. Fans couldn’t help but wonder if the renowned Belgian soccer star Kevin De Bruyne, known for his exceptional skills on the field, had ventured into the world of music during his recovery from injury.
De Bruyne, known for his witty and humorous presence on social media, joined the conversation on X (formerly Twitter) with a playful remark: “Hey, @Drake needed an assist.” His comment added fuel to the rumors, making fans even more curious about the possible collaboration. However, he didn’t leave the speculation hanging for too long, quickly clarifying his role in the songwriting process: “All jokes aside, it’s not me! Huge fan though!”
As of now, Kevin De Bruyne finds himself sidelined due to an injury he sustained on the opening day of the Premier League season back in August. Despite his absence from the field, his team, Manchester City, continues to perform impressively, currently sitting at the top of the league standings. De Bruyne’s humorous denial prompted a response from teammate Erling Haaland, who cryptically stated, “not alone,” hinting that there might be another surprise collaborator behind the scenes.
Kevin De Bruyne’s contributions to the world of soccer cannot be overstated. Widely regarded as one of the best creative midfielders in the sport, he has achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming the quickest player in history to record 100 assists in the Premier League. At the time of writing, De Bruyne boasts an impressive tally of 102 Premier League assists, ranking him as the fourth-highest assist provider in the league’s storied history.
While the rumors of a musical collaboration between Kevin De Bruyne and Drake might have set social media ablaze, it’s clear that De Bruyne remains fully focused on his recovery and his soccer career. His lighthearted response to the speculation showcases his sense of humor, endearing him even further to his fans.
