Veronica Correia was having “nonstop” fun at Drake’s concert when she threw her bra on the stage. Not only did she catch the rapper’s attention in a big way, but also Playboy’s.
The series of events from that split-second thought to toss her bra at the “Hotline Bling” singer has been full of unique opportunities and moments, and Correia, 21, is excited for what’s to come.
Veronica Correia’s 36G Bra Got Drake Momentarily “In My Feelings”
Correia feels like the events that have occurred since going to see Drake in concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, last week is fate hard at work. While just “living life to the fullest” and thoroughly enjoying the moment, Correia had no idea that one moment would lead to a life-changing opportunity, as well as a DM from Drake himself.
After throwing her bra onto the stage and Drake picking it up, her first thought was, “Wow, that’s mine. Please tell him it’s me.”
“I couldn’t even believe he picked up my bra,” she told The Blast exclusively. “I was in shock before he even said, ’36G. Locate this woman immediately.'”

This was the first time she ever threw her bra on stage to a performer,, proving to have been a life-changing idea. After her video went viral, she got an Instagram DM with a lucrative opportunity from Playboy.
“The message didn’t pop up in my normal direct message; it was in my requests. I didn’t know if it was real until I accepted the request and saw it came from a verified IG page,” she explained. “Playboy has a special team of scouts that is meticulous when finding new creators to join Playboy with the opportunity to earn huge income. I was in total disbelief and couldn’t believe it was happening. It’s a dream to be a part of Playboy.”
While this wasn’t something Correia set out to find, and this is the first time she considered being part of Playboy, she feels this opportunity she cannot pass up.
“This opportunity was the first time I considered being part of Playboy. Since the opportunity arose, it’s become an amazing chance for me to spread my message, and the earning potential alone has made it worthwhile,” she told The Blast. “Other people on the Playboy creator platform have made millions of dollars a year, so I think it’s a fantastic opportunity, even though I hadn’t considered it before.”
This experience has felt like fate for Correia, who has some modeling experience from childhood. Both her parents are photographers, and they always encouraged her “to model and be confident in myself.”
“I got a few jobs modeling through Hasbro, but it didn’t really stick. I also won the Miss Day of Portugal pageant in Rhode Island,” she said. “I think this opportunity is a sign and definitely fate telling me that I should pursue modeling.”
Did Veronica Get To Meet Drake After All The Attention?
The main goal of throwing her bra on stage was to grab Drake’s attention and it’s clear that she achieved that. But did she get the chance to meet or at least talk to him?
“Yes! I was able to message with him on Instagram,” she revealed. “But would love the opportunity to meet him in person.”

While this experience has brought tons of positive attention, there has been some negative as well. Correia has a message for anyone who saw the viral video and had negative things to say.
“I would like people to know that I didn’t throw my bra at Drake for any negative attention. I highly respect myself, my daughter and my image. It was purely out of fun and that was my pure reaction to the incident. I’m not embarrassed about the video going viral,” she explained. “I love living life to the fullest. This wasn’t to entertain anyone else but myself. The negative comments don’t affect me or represent who I am as a person.”
Correia’s original TikTok video received more than 6.6 million views, and her follow up video explaining that she’s the one who threw the bra received more than 6.2 million views.
When one follower commented, “Gurl we’re the same size I should’ve thrown mine when I went 😭,” Correia replied, “You really should have I don’t care about the hate comments experience 10/10.”
Another follower reminded her, “Your moment has come babygirrrrrl!! Ride the wave till no end!!! 🖤🖤🖤”
