The True Meaning Behind In The Bible By Drake Ft Lil Durk & Giveon

Drake's sixth studio album, "Certified Lover Boy," was released on September 3 — and within hours became one of the biggest albums of 2021, breaking Spotify's record for the most-streamed album in a single day. 

"CLB" is a lengthy project packed with 21 songs, including hits like "Way 2 Sexy" featuring Future and Young Thug, "Girls Like Girls" featuring Lil Baby, and "Fair Trade" featuring Travis Scott. Drake is known to exert his influence by having legendary rappers hop on his songs, but he is also known to give rising stars an opportunity to collaborate on his albums as well. And in true Champagne Papi fashion "CLB" was no different. For a fourth time, Drake and Jay-Z teamed up for "Love All," while 21 Savage — who often frequents on Drake's albums — did his thing on "Knife Talk." Nigerian Artist Tems, who is making waves in the industry, even made her debut on "CLB" with "Fountains." 

However, there was one record that had the internet talking. Aside from the catchy song title, "In the Bible" — featuring Lil Durk and Giveon — is the R&B and rap collaboration fans didn't know they needed. But what is the true meaning behind the song?

Lil Durk gives his girl India Royale's business a major boost

Breaking news: "In The Bible" actually has nothing to do with the good book — except for the fact that Drake is trying to convince the lady he is referring to on the track that her extracurricular activities are not in the Bible. 

Drake seems to condemn his bae's actions in the song. "You don't know love / you don't love me like my child / Lay your a** down / then that liquor get you fired up," he raps. "Turn up every day girl / It don't say that in the Bible / Can't give it up 'cause you love the lifestyle." Despite Drake's inner battle to get his lady friend to love him, Lil Durk completely switched up the vibe of the record. 

The Chicago rapper kicks off the song with lyrics that seem to contradict his real life. Though he raps, "It's not in the Bible to wife off one girl / I'm Muslim, I go by Quran," he's actually in a longtime relationship with India Royale, the mother of his youngest daughter. However, he quickly remembers he is committed to one woman and even gives her company a shout-out. "She only play me in the whip / India Royale Cosmetic / I'm just promotin' my b**** / Drake song do a billion streams for sure / I'm just promotin' her s***." 

His clever gesture of support immediately caught fans' attention, but there was another line in his verse that took TikTok by storm.

This one Lil Durk lyric went viral, while Giveon alludes to not being trustworthy

With just one line, Lil Durk took "In the Bible" to all new heights. His lyric, "I did my dance one time on TikTok and went viral with it," truly lived up to the hype on the social media platform. Per Distractify, the sound was trending for weeks, appearing in over 600,000 videos. One TikTok — of a baby dancing in the pool to Lil Durk's verse — has a whopping 56 million views, plus over 703,000 shares and 9 million likes. 

Giveon ended the song with his angelic, soulful voice truly captivating the essence of R&B. Unlike Drake trying to get his woman to love him, and Lil Durk being a true "lover boy," Giveon took a different approach — as it seems like he is the individual not to trust. "I'm not what you think / Don't be proud of me / I'm not what you feel / And you gon' see it real soon / I'm not what you think." He continues, " ... And when you see the real / Will you still want me?" 

Ultimately, all three artists brought something different to the song — and it clearly worked. "In the Bible" debuted at No. 7 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart; 19 other tracks off of "Certified Lover Boy" landed in the Top 40, too.
