The seventh annual OVO Fest kicked off this weekend. And, as expected, Day 1 delivered plenty of epic moments. None were more epic, however, than the announcement by special guest Kanye West that he and Drake have a collaborative album on the way.
Just like in previous years, Drake lit up his home city of Toronto with memorable guest performances. Sunday’s concert featured sets by Roy Wood$, dvsn, Baka, as well as Future. And who could forget when Rihanna joined Drizzy to perform a medley of their collaborative hits, including “Work” and “Too Good”?
Needless to say, Day 1 set the bar pretty high. But Day 2 was just as memorable. Following repeat performances by Roy Wood$ and dvsn, Popcaan took the stage as the first surprise guest of the night. The Jamaican singer, who’s featured on Drake’s hit single “Controlla,” came out to his song “Only Man She Wants” and then followed it up with “Everything Nice” and Jamie xx’s “I Know There’s Gonna Be.”
And it didn’t stop there. Drake’s “No Shopping” collaborator French Montana also took the stage, which was an expected move, but still pretty lit.
Rihanna returned for night number two in style. She joined the evening’s host to sing “Work” and “Too Good,” and went solo with “Bitch Betta Have My Money.”
There was only one way to bring the night up from there. Drake brought out Kanye West, who had joined him in Chicago just a few nights earlier. Just like last week, they performed “Pop Style,” and Yeezy made the big announcement about the joint project.
