Since 2000, the compilation LP has sold about 17 million copies and over the weekend, Kidz Bop released its 39th installment offering the world a G-rated and tween-friendly version of today’s biggest hits.
Once Twitter learned Kidz Bop laid its prepubescent hands on Drake’s song, there was a mixed bag of feelings. Some went along with it and commented positively, while others were frankly offended.

This isn’t the first time Drake’s music has been Kidz Bopped. For Kidz Bop 31, “Hotline Bling” was also featured. The new 18-track album also features Cardi B’s “I Like It” as well as Khalid and Normani’s “Love Lies.”
The lyrics to the hook received a slight change:
KiKi, do you love me/are you with me/say you’ll never ever leave from beside me/cause I want ya/and I need ya/and I’m down for ya always
And when it came time for the City Girls portion of the song, they turned that down as well.
All of us kids and we hangin’ in the rain/hangin’ in rain/I need a black card with the code to the safe/code to the safe.
Hey, kids need love too. Watch the Kidz Bop version of Drake’s “In My Feelings” below.
