Drake Bell Is Now A Spanish-Language Singer Named Drake Campana

November 20, 2020 / Posted by:

Drake Bell, known for Drake & Josh, Amanda Show, All That, and Splash (the celebrity diving show, not the Daryl Hannah movie), has changed his name to Drake Campana, added a little Mexican flag to his Twitter handle, and is making a stab at becoming a Spanish-language singer. OK, sure! Now, what does Campana mean? Bell. Another: OK, sure!  Drake, born: Jared Drake Bell, has English, Scottish, and Swedish DNA. He’s from Orange County, CA and his parents’ last names are Dodson and Bell. You can’t get much whiter than that! But last year he fled the country and moved to Mexico.

Here’s Drake’s new passport (um, shouldn’t he be blurring out some of that info?):

A year ago Drake gave us a warning of things to come when he tweeted (in Spanish, of course): “My social networks will now only be in Spanish, no more English”:

And his new song (uh oh, someone’s gotta change his name on Vevo!) “Diosa” (which is Spanish for “Goddess”):

He recently told Esquire Mexico (translated via Popbuzz):

“Growing up in Southern California, there has always been a Mexican influence, especially where I grew up, which is Orange County, so I always kept in mind. I went all the time and when I started doing tours, I got to know places that I fell in love with.”

Speaking about his music, he continued: “I wanted to do something for the fans of Mexico, with Latin rhythms and I wanted to do something like what I have heard on my tours and visits to Mexico. I love writing in Spanish, it is a beautiful language”.

Twitter obviously had thoughts the moment his large Mexican fanbase and career became news:


Drake’s had some troubles in the last few years. He went to jail for his second DUI in 2016, and this August his ex-girlfriend went on TikTok and accused him of verbal and physical abuse. Drake denied the allegations because no man has ever responded with, “Yep, ya got me! I’m a piece of shit!” ¡Ay, Dios mío!
