On October 4th, Drake announced a live show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York. The highly anticipated performance will take place on November 11th, 2022.

Drake’s last live performance was the Young Money Reunion on August 6th. The show starred long time collaborators Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne. They performed a number of hits for the OG fans; like ‘The Motto’, ‘Moment 4 Life’, ‘Up All Night’, and more. The show was originally scheduled for August 1st, but had to be postponed due to Drake testing positive for COVID-19. “Negative test…positive outcome,” Drake posted when announcing the rescheduled show. Evidently, the show was a very positive outcome.

Honestly, Nevermind

This summer, Drake released his seventh studio album, Honestly, Nevermind. The album received a lot of success, but not everybody was happy with it. It was a dance album, with some sounds that will give you an island beach vibe, and some that will give you a Jersey club vibe. Pitchfork says, “This is an upbeat, all vibes Drake album that works far better in concept than execution.” It was an art piece made for the summer.

Further, Dj Carnage, A.K.A Gordo, produced 5 songs off of Honestly Nevermind. The Guatemalan-American producer hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. In fact, all five of the productions earned a spot on that edition of the Billboard Hot 100. The songs were ‘Sticky’ (No. 6), ‘Massive’ (No. 14), ‘Calling My Name’ (No. 20), ‘Currents’ (No. 23), ‘Ties That Bind’ (No. 66).

Listeners could tell that the 14 song album was made for Drake’s pleasure, and not to please the fans of his previous projects. He had fun with it, and a lot of people were clowning him for it. But, when he tries to give the people what they want, they still aren’t happy. Think about Certified Lover Boy, where Drizzy gave his fans that “something-for-everyone” formula; singing about love, pettiness, distrust.

The ‘Massive’ artist used strategy by making a dissimilar project that plays in clubs and raves. His hip-hop fans might have been disappointed, but after a month I can bet that a majority of them grew to enjoy the album.
