Drake knows when that hotline bling, it could mean one thing — performing his hit song at the Bat Mitzvah for Gigi Ashkenazy, daughter of real estate investor Ben Ashkenazy.

The rapper, who’s half Jewish, performed his hits at an extravagant party at the iconic Rainbow Room Saturday night.

While the older guests were not into the jams, the tweens and teens were — so much so that after Drake finished performing, half the crowd left, sources told the New York Post.

Drake — no stranger to Bat Mitzvahs himself, using it as a setting for his video “HYFR” — charges $300,000 to $600,000 for private performances, according to TMZ.

Ashkenazy‘s Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp. has about $7 billion under management worldwide. Ashkenazy bought the Madison Avenue Hermes men’s store for $115 million in July of last year, and in late 2014 bought the New York Marriott for $290 million. [NYP]Dusica Sue Malesevic
