Sophia Grace, ‘The Motto': Drake’s Song Performed by Tween — Video
Eight-year-old British darling Sophia Grace Brownlee and her sidekick Rosie have been staples on ‘The Ellen Show’ as of late, performing Nicki Minaj songs and showcasing their tween charm. They’ve graced red carpets, interviewed celebrities and now they’ve created their first original rap to the tune of Drake‘s ‘The Motto,’ featured on his ‘Take Care’ LP.
Dressed in their signature princess costumes, the cheeky little ladies sat on Ellen DeGeneres’ couch and prefaced the performance with a hint of what was to come. “There is a song on the end, a chorus!” Sophia said of the rap, which was centered on Disneyland, before she headed to grab a microphone with Rosie.
“Let’s go,” Sophia shouted. “I’m Sophia Grace, I’m only 8 years old/ Hold up, wait a minute, that’s gettin’ old/ I got a dream, it’s a real big dream/ Sophia Grace and Rosie, it’s the princess team… Thank you, Ellen, Disneyland, here we comin’/ The history of Disney, the princess swagger/ Put it all together, we got moves like Jagger.”
Rosie swayed to the lyrics Sophia rapped but never once uttered a word. And just like she promised, Sophia belted out a chorus, urging the audience to “clap the clap, clap.”
Drake took note of the performance of his Bay Area-inspired hit, taking to Twitter to praise the tiny duo.
Ahhh man those two little girls swagged so hard on The Motto.
