Less than 24 hours ago, Takashi Murakami took to Instagram to unveil three new sculptures that are slated to be on display at his Gagosian Hong Kong show, opening September 20. The exhibition preview includes a new Flowers piece as well as sculptures of Murakami’s beloved characters, KAIKAI and KIKI.

While the tease is news itself, in the comments of the KIKI unveil, Drake chimes in saying, “Um I need this if it’s Keke.” The Toronto entertainer is obviously referencing his smash hit “In My Feelings,” in which the Drake raps “Keke, do you love me? Are you riding?…” You know the rest.

In related news, Drake just revealed a 100-carat OVO owl chain.
