NOW recently got to talk to Drake about this year’s opening acts for OVO Fest. Drake gives a list of people that were going to perform, which includes: The Weeknd, 2Chainz, and A$AP Rocky.
“I could do a whole separate interview about how talented [the Weeknd] is and what he means to the city. I’m so proud of him. He’s going to come out and prove how far he’s come in a year and how much he’s evolved as a performer.”
“I’ve known him for years, since when I was coming out on Lil Wayne’s stage as Jimmy from Degrassi. He’s one of the most exciting rappers out right now. I’m on his album, and we’ve done a lot of work together. I’m really excited to be bringing him to Toronto for his first solo show.”
“He’s a great performer. He brings a real energy to the stage and has a crazy, wild team around him that jump around and get people riled up and excited.”
