7969 Santa


Album For All The Dogs

“7969 Santa”  is the eighth track from Canadian rapper Drake and his eighth studio album “For All The Dogs”which was released in October 2023 through OVO Records and Republic Records.

The song’s title refers to the “Delilah” restaurant and nightclub in Hollywood on 7969 Santa Monica Boulevard. This is a clear reference and the track itself, is a dig towards his ex-girlfriend Delilah, who Drake dated around June 2023. Throughout the track, he disses Lilah for paying over 20 grand monthly for her rent, for trusting her allegedly doing things with other men while on trips without Drake, and ultimately, her blaming her behaviour on  being twenty-five years old. Drake admits he cannot stop thinking about her, but knows he is better without her.

Snoop Dog, Teezo Touchdown and Chief Keef all feature on various parts of the track.

The audio video has received over 2.5 million views as of the 27th January 2023.
