Drake shared the cover art for his new single, “Search & Rescue,” on Instagram Thursday, which featured an image of him and a woman in matching motorcycle helmets.
While the “Hotline Bling” rapper did not disclose the identity of the unknown woman, fans accused the Canadian-born rapper of trolling his former foe Kanye West by posing with a look-alike of his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
“Drake a savage for using that Kim Kardashian pic for his single cover,” tweeted one fan.
“Is it me or is that Kim Kardashian under the helmet????????????? #Drake,” added another.
“NAHHHHH MAN DRAKE A WHOLE ASS SUPERVILLAIN FOR PUTTING KIM KARDASHIAN IN THE COVER LMFAOOOOOO,” wrote a third.
Fans believe Drake is trolling Kanye West with his new cover art.
The cover art for “Search & Rescue” featured a Kim Kardashian look-alike.
“Nah, Drake really on demon time. If that indeed is Kim Kardashian I’d be sick if I was Ye,” tweeted a fourth observer.
Page Six reached out to Drake’s rep, who declined to comment.
Last week, Drake, 36, premiered a snippet of the forthcoming song, which featured audio of Kardashian speaking about her divorce from West, on “The Fry Yiy Show” on SiriusXM’s Sound 42.
“I didn’t come this far just to come this far and not be happy. Remember that,” the reality star, 42, said on the 2021 series finale of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
One fan called the Canadian-born rapper a “savage” for using an alleged pic of the Skims founder.
The “Kardashians” star previously denied hooking up with Drake.
That November, West, 45, claimed that Drake “acted” like he slept with the Skims founder — claims she denied.
“You acted like you did,” the “All of the Lights” emcee said on “Drink Champs” at the time. “It’s like somebody throwing a marble and hiding their hand.”
Ye later accused Drake of sleeping with Kardashian’s mom, Kris Jenner. The momager never spoke about the claims.

Fans are confused about why the “Certified Lover Boy” rapper is using Kardashian’s voice and alleged likeness for his new music, as he and the Yeezy founder squashed their long-standing beef in November 2021.
At the time, Ye shared a picture of himself standing with Drake and music executive J. Prince in Toronto. He captioned the post with a dove emoji, symbolizing that the rap icons had made peace.
“Search & Rescue” will be released on streaming platforms on Friday.
