Drake sure knows how to generate buzz.
Canada’s hip-hop gem kicked off his hometown OVO music festival in Toronto on Monday with big news and an even bigger set. Welcoming fans to OVO Fest, Drizzy stood atop a replica of the CN Tower.
Fans will remember the artist’s album art for the Toronto-inspired “Views”, released April 2016, in which Drake was Photoshopped on top of the famous observation tower. The internet took a liking to the image and subsequently Photoshopped Drake onto anything and everything. Drake has since released his “playlist”, More Life, in March and the summer single, “Signs”.
While onstage, “The Motto” rapper revealed his next big project: “I’m going to go back to making this new album in Toronto, just for you.”
The eighth edition of the Toronto festival saw big-name artists like The Weeknd, Migos, Travis Scott, Cardi B and Tory Lanez.
