Drake -- Loving Life Down Under ... A Hot Chick's Bikini

Drake did a little importing for his Australian tour -- flying in a hot chick -- from NY to keep him company.  

The "If You're Reading This It's Too Late" rapper was chilling at his hotel pool in Perth, Australia, wearing a smoking babe in a bikini, named Bernice Burgos. We're told they met back in NYC, and they've been "knowing" each other since 2012. Drizzy immortalized her in his verse for the song, "Odio."

She's clearly hot enough to warrant a plane ticket half way around the world. 

By the way, rare shots of Drake shirtless. He ain't hardcore, but he's looking ... fit.
