Drake is currently globetrotting thanks to his Boy Meets World tour, making his way through Europe with some surprises to keep crowds guessing. So far Young Thug has been a fixture and Drake performed a Rihanna medley to celebrate her birthday, but Saturday might’ve brought the biggest surprise yet.
Referring to him as “the real Starboy,” The Weeknd took the stage with Drake in Oberhausen, Germany to perform “The Hills” from his 2015 album Beauty Behind the Madness. The connection between the two goes all the way back to 2011 according to Complex, with Drake putting the spotlight on his fellow Canadian’s House of Balloons mixtape. It’s apparently been an odd relationship on and off since that point, but Saturday’s appearance proved that professional competition doesn’t always mean doom for a friendship. Canadians have to stick together.
The concert appearance comes just a few days after Drake popped up in The Weeknd’s video for “Reminder,” the moment where their apparent rivalry first showed hints at thawing. It was also their first collaboration since “Live For,” and our first inkling that there might be more coming very soon from the pair. If this performance from Germany means anything, perhaps we’ll be seeing some sort of united front to take over the charts together.
Drake will be touring until March 28th it seems, so we can expect some more surprises along the way hopefully. Trying to guess what will happen in music almost seems impossible these days.
