Naomi Osaka is prepping for the Western & Southern Open this week in Cincinnati with two things on her mind: having fun and listening to good music. What music exactly, asked Tennis Channel's Prakash Amritraj? The 21-year-old couldn't help but break into giggles as she named YBN Cordae's The Lost Boy album.
"You should listen to it," she said.
Osaka has been linked with the rapper since last year, and has been posting some less-than-subtle hints about her passion for his music. They're still keeping their relationship, as the millennials would say, "low-key."
So I didn’t think I was going to do this cause I didn’t want to be “that” person, but I’ve been listening to the album on repeat since it dropped so I might be in my feels... this is honestly one of the best albums I’ve heard in a while and for this to be his debut album ???????? you can obviously trust my completely unbiased opinion hahaha. So anyways this is a “I’m proud of you” post, and also a “you guys should listen to the album” post ????
Osaka just reached the quarterfinals at the Rogers Cup, falling to Serena Williams, and returning to No. 1 in the rankings. She'll open against Aliaksandra Sasnovich on Wednesday.
