So its official Drake has finally touched down in London to launch the start of his extended UK leg of his “Boy Meets” World Tour and as was expected, he had a few surprises up his sleeve.
Dressed all the way up in Stone Island the night started off nicely, with tunes from his R&B collective “DVSN” and the nonsensical turn-up of Young Thug, he brought through a couple of secret guests during his own set to lift the home crowd and no one could predict what was to come next.
Firstly he brought out Section Boyz to a loud applause, to perform their classic hit track “Lock Arff”, as well as making way for Kyla toward the end for their mega single “One Dance”.
But it didn’t stop there, the biggest reaction from the crowd on the night, came when Drizzy dropped “Whippin Excursion” and Giggs blasted out onto the stage. Even Drizzy himself had to reload this one!
Top that off with another exclusive play of the forthcoming collaboration between the pair and this was one hell of an opening night to remember.
Its safe to say and just like in the words of his close friend Skepta, this one was a complete “SHUTDOWN!”
