Have you ever wondered what Drake’s songs sound like from Scotland? Well, Bette Reynolds, 68, is here to show you.
While Drake hails as “6 God,” Time mentions that 68-year-old Scottish woman Bette Reynolds could be dubbed the “6 Goddess.” While she doesn’t deliver the same flow as Drizzy Drake, Reynolds covers quite a variety of his songs in her own style.
When you hear Bette, as well as her accompanying bagpipes, you’ll understand why she has such an enormous following.
As the source states, “Bette Reynolds is the rapper you didn’t know you needed in your life.” She’s “Scotland’s Very Own.” According to Reynolds — like Drake — she “started from the bottom.”
Bette also mentions that she, too, has enemies trying to drain her of her energy.
Reynolds is truly a Vine sensation, and proves that age isn’t a factor in technological savvy-ness.
But, what about Drake’s Views album?
Bette Reynolds borrowed “One Dance” from Drake’s Views project, as well, including a version of Drake’s cover art.
Likewise, according to Mashable, the 68-year-old Drake enthusiast responded to the source via email. In that email, Reynolds mentions that she enjoys making people laugh and having fun. And her son, Steward Reynolds — who also has a Vine under the name Brittlestar — thought it would be hilarious to have a Scottish mother rap Drake’s lyrics.
Bette Reynolds usually has her son record and manage her Vine videos and profile. However, she notes that she’s not afraid to do it herself. She told the source that she has captured a few Drake cover videos from her iPad without her son’s help. So, while enjoying retirement, Bette also has fun building her Vine audience, as well as entertaining them.
Yet, does Reynolds actually listen to Drake’s music?
According to the 68-year-old, she does listen to Drizzy and loves him. However, the factor that really makes her a fan is that “he seems like he’s good to his mother,” says Reynolds.
As you can hear from Drake’s songs, like “You and the 6” — from his If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late mixtape — the whole point of his song was that his mother raised him right. In honor, Drizzy appreciates her and tells her as often as possible.

Drake’s relationship with his mother is one many men can understand.
After hearing “You and the 6,” several men took to social media to emotionally express their sincerities for their own mothers. So, is it not equally understandable that — as a mother — Bette Reynolds would appreciate such a thing?
Nevertheless, don’t be fooled.
Reynolds might be the “6 Goddess,” but she’s not limited to Drake’s songs only, as concerns her covers. In other Vines, Bette has tackled songs from Kanye and Desiigner. Yes, Reynolds has expressed that she also “has broads in Atlanta.”
Apparently, this Drake enthusiast has no issue keeping up with the trends. While Reynolds sets the social media bar higher for retirees, Time mentions that she has over 16,000 followers. On Vine, that’s exceptional for anyone.
After having made 45 posts to the social media platform, Bette Reynolds doesn’t plan on stopping her Drake cover songs. And, since Drizzy is currently releasing more new tracks aside from his chart-topping Views album, the Scottish sensation will have plenty more material for her high-traffic Vine.
The Inquisitr previously reported on Drake’s new songs, “For Free” and “4 PM in Calabasas.” Drizzy’s “For Free” was a collaboration with DJ Khaled, while “4 PM in Calabasas” was a diss track aimed at Bad Boy’s Puff Daddy.
