Drake Delivers Surprise Performance at 2017 Canada Day
One thing that Drake loves to do frequently is pop up on fans unexpectedly, and he most recently did that at Canada Day on Sunday (July 2). The More Life rapper surprised his fans with a performance set to help honor his home country, which is currently celebrating its 150th anniversary.
The performance took place at Nathan Phillips Square, and featured Drizzy performing some of his hit songs such as "Jumpman," as well as "Fake Love." While we're not sure what the full set included, fan videos showed off the enthusiastic performance from the Toronto native. The entertainer then made a speech to the crowd, where he spoke on Canada's spirit and the people of the country.
“When we celebrate Canada, we celebrate all of these individuals from all places that came here and found solitude in this beautiful country,” Drake said to the packed audience. “We celebrate our indigenous people. We celebrate the land that we’re standing on tonight. I just came for the party though, I’m not gonna lie.”
Following his performance, the "Signs" MC stuck around with some of his OVO team to watch the fireworks take place.
It's going to be a big summer for Drake, as he's getting ready for his OVO Fest in Toronto on Aug. 7 at the Budweiser stage.
