Drake, along with Nelly Furtado, belted out her very first hit single ‘I’m Like a Bird’ along with ‘Promiscuous Girl’ and a few other bangers. He later took to Instagram later to share a series of photos with the caption, “And though my love is rare. And though my love is trueeeeee.” Nelly too returned the favor by sharing a short clip of their rare performance. She captioned the video as “homie pigeons” along with an emoticon of a bright star and an owl.
While addressing the audience at local venue History, Drake dubbed the evening as “the most important night” of his life. He told the audience, “I like to deal with people the right way. Because that’s the only way that you can get this next person out of the house to come do what they’re going to do right now.”
He added while teasing Nelly’s appearance, “I don’t care how loud you sang tonight…right now I need you to sing as loud as you possibly can because this right here took a lot…This next person’s music changed my life so much. I love her with all my heart, so when she comes out here you better show her some f**king love, too.”
Artists like Keshia Chanté, Kardinal Offishall, Shawn Desman, Rascalz, and others were also featured in the concert. The three-day event will also bring out industry stalwarts such as Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, and Lil Baby.
