It’s no secret Drake loves the ladies. The Canadian MC took it to another level by retiring the jerseys of three strippers during Houston Appreciation Week.

In what can only be described as dancer motivation, Drizzy hosted a retirement party for Lira Galore, Miracle Watts and Maliah Michel at his pop-up nightclub The Ballet. As part of the unique festivities, each striptease artist got their jersey hung up in the rafters to commemorate their retirement. Additionally, each lady also received special gifts from Louis Vuitton courtesy of the rapper’s new partnership with the luxury fashion house for his recent song “Signs“.


All three exotic performers have made a name for themselves in Rap music respectively as Maliah was Drake’s ex-girlfriend (see his “Practice” video), Lisa Galore was engaged to Rick Ross briefly and Miracle Watts has been linked to August Alsina.

Even though Michel was in attendance she made it clear that she can only determine when she officially leaves the pole via an Instagram post: “Contrary to ‘social media news’ no man can retire me,” she wrote. “I’m shaking this azz into a wheel chair. Maliah will retire Maliah #MaliahMondays.”

Galore and Watts seem to revel in the recognition posting several images from the party with thankful words directed towards ChampagnePapi. “Wow, made strip club history tonight. Got in, got out .. STILL relevant. S/O to the BOY !! @Drake” stated Galore via her social media account.


Looks like Drake is well on his way to being a strip club impresario. No word on when his Houston based establishment is opening though.
