Last week, rumours about Drake and Travis Scott were running rampant on the internet as fans speculated about who would be joining the Scorpion emcee on the Canada leg of his ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour. However, the speculation has ended as yesterday, the two artists joined forces to entertain Vancouver.
Atlanta rhymer 21 Savage had partnered up with Drake to tour their collaborative album. However, it became public knowledge that due to the Savage Mode lyricist’s 2019 detention by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), visa issues meant he would not be accompanying Drake in his home nation.
A picture of Scott’s private jet arriving at Vancouver airport began circulating online last week, and alleged photos of Travis Scott on stage at the Vancouver rehearsal got leaked. As such, fans were confident the Astroworld artist would assist Drizzy, and they were right.
In front of the Vancouver crowd, Drake proclaimed, “I got some bad news. 21 Savage could not get into Canada, and I apologise from the bottom of my heart. But lucky for you, Vancouver, I have a brother who loves you almost as much as I do, and he flew all the way here for y’all tonight. And this will be the only time that anybody gets to see him on this tour, so y’all better make some motherfuckin’ noise.”
The OVO founder then welcomed Scott onto the stage, where the two performed some of their most well-known hits and collaborations. The duo performed their previous collaborative hit ‘SICKO MODE’, and Scott even delivered his solo cuts ‘I Know?’, ‘FE!N’ and ‘GOOSEBUMPS.’
The pair even performed their most recent collaborative track, ‘Meltdown,’ a fan favourite from Scott’s critically acclaimed body of work, Utopia. The performance sent the crowd into a frenzy and was one of the most electrifying moments of the night.
Scott concluded by announcing that he will be touring his own North American tour, titled ‘Utopia Circus Maximus’ across North America from October until the end of the year.
