Drake Was The Third Wheel For His Cousin's Prom Night

Alas, Drizzy didn't match her pink sequin gown.

For many teenagers now, prom isn't just a chance to ask out your crush or wear your first fancy dress. Promposals and prom dress themes are a chance to absolutely dunk on other people IRL and via social media. But Memphis high schooler Jalaah managed to land a very special guest for her prom: her cousin Aubrey Graham, aka Drake.

Jalaah, a student at Fairley High School, already had a date; check out that spiffing young man wearing a suit that matches her own pink sequin gown. Alas, Drizzy didn't keep up with the couple's dress code, instead opting for a positively demure all-black ensemble.

But the rapper wasn't there to totally steal either Jalaah or her date's shine. Instead, he posted an ode to the couple on his own Instagram:

Of course, his own laid-back attendance didn't stop other Fairley High students from sharing their own excitement over seeing Drake:

So, what brought Drizzy to Tennessee? He's not on tour, but Bonnaroo Music + Arts Festival is right around the corner. Whatever the reason, the rapper sure knows all about trying to keep his family close. Now, if only he'd gone with a pink sequin suit.
