Drake and company took to Toronto tonight to put on their eighth annual OVO Fest. The show took place in Toronto and saw performances from Partynextdoor, Majid Jordan, Roy Woods, Dvsn, and the anointed one himself, the ruler of the dominion known as the 6ix, Drake. OVO boss Drizzy also took the opportunity to announce that he is at work on a new album. The project will most likely be out next year.
In the eight years of OVO fest, there have been plenty of surprise guests. Back in 2011, Drake brought out the legend known as Stevie Wonder. The superstar performed a medley of “I Wish,” “Ribbon in the Sky,” “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” and “Superstitious.” Rick Ross and the Weeknd also performed at the show that year.
In 2014 Lauryn Hill blessed the stage to perform her songs “Ready or Not” and “Lost Ones” and was joined by Drake to perform “Doo Wop” and “Draft Day.” Kanye West was in attendance in 2013 to perform “New Slaves” and “All of the Lights.”
At the first annual OVO Fest, back in 2010, Drake had Eminem and Jay Z come out.
For the latest OVO fest, which took place on August 7 at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Drake did it big by performing atop a replica of Toronto's famous CN Tower, impressively recreating the cover of his album Views. Drizzy also brought out Cardi B, who performed her hit track “Bodak Yellow.” Drake also had previous nemesis Tory Lanez come out to perform his “Controlla” remix. Oh, and if that wasn't enough Migos, Playboi Carti, Travis Scott, French Montana, The Weeknd, Nelly, and Rae Sremmurd all hit the stage at the star studded show.
