Los Angeles: After ex-boyfriend Chris Brown`s rap targeted Rihanna, a fresh controversy has emerged as rapper Drake has reportedly taken aim at her in a new song.

In his newly-released song, Drake, also known as Drizzy, jibed at the 24-year-old pop star with the verse `She could have a Grammy, I still treat her like a nominee`, reported Aceshowbiz.

Drizzy, 25, was romantically linked to the R&B star after her breakup with Brown. Drake even collaborated with her in two songs including a Grammy-nominated single `What`s My Name?` from her 2010 album `Loud`.

"I was a pawn. You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I have done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, `Wow, this feels terrible`," Drake had said.

Rihanna once explained the split with the rapper.

"We were not really sure what it was. We just went out - my friends, his friends. I definitely was attracted to Drake, but I think it is what it is, like it was what it was. We did not want to take it any further. It was at a really fragile time in my life, so I just did not want to get too serious with anything or anyone at that time," she said.
