The Game gives LA Leakers the green light to premiere his remix over OVO’s latest signee Makonnen’s ‘Tuesday.’
With Dear America dropping September 2nd, P Reign premieres a snippet of his new single ‘DNF (Drunk N Fuck)‘ featuring Drake and Future.
Drake certainly knows how to stay on top of the game as he returns today with a brand new remix to the bubbling new record “Club Goin’ Up on a Tuesday” by Atlanta newcomer ILOVEMAKONNEN. October’s Very Own adds his golden touch with a melodic flow and even showcases his falsetto on the Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin-produced track.
“Put the world on a song / You know PARTY and The Weeknd / Ain’t got no motherf*ckin’ time to party on the weekend,” he croons.
Drake is currently traveling across North America with Lil Wayne on their “Vs.” tour. He plans to get to work on his next album after the tour ends.
Take a listen to his latest remix below:
Drake once again put on for his city as he brought the stars out for the 5th Annual OVO Fest. The Canadian superstar shared the stage with Lauryn Hill, Usher, Trey Songz, 50 Cent, J. Cole and more during Monday’s three-hour event at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.
Jhené Aiko opened the show, making way for the first big surprise of the evening, Ms. Lauryn Hill. The Fugees frontwoman performed “Killing Me Softly,” “Fu-Gee-La,” and “Ready or Not” before a bowing Drake showed up to perform a mash-up of “Draft Day” and “Doo Wop (That Thing).”
“I gotta hug my mom before I do this show because it’s the fifth year,” he said (according to Billboard) before his mother Sandi Graham took the stage in a wheelchair.
“If you’ve been a fan of music or a fan of Drake, I want to take you back tonight,” he said before taking a trip down memory lane, starting with his 2009 mixtape So Far Gone.
Trey Songz joined him for “Successful” and “Na Na.” “I promise you my career as a human being would be nowhere without this guy,” Drake said of the R&B crooner.
PARTYNEXTDOOR and DJ Khaled were up next, followed by Tinashe and YG, who performed “Who Do You Love?”
“This is probably gonna be one of the best moments in OVO history, so make some mothafuckin’ noise,” said Drake as Usher emerged to perform “Climax,” “Confessions Pt. II,” “Lovers and Friends,” “U Don’t Have to Call,” and “Good Kisser.”
Drake also announced that the two have collaborated on Usher’s upcoming album, due this fall, and asks his friend to show off his signature slide dance. “From ‘My Way’ to ‘8701,’ I used to swing a chain around my neck,” Drake recalls, “I had the Sean Johns on, I had the roller-skating shoes on. Can we just slide walk for a second, you still got it?”

While the music world is still shocked by the Chris Brown and Drake collaboration that may be in the works, everyone was stunned when they stormed the Espy’s together Wednesday night.
As a part of Drake’s comedy skit with Blake Griffin, Breezy jumped in and poked fun of he and Drake’s ongoing (now paused) rivalry. Called on by Griffin as a part of a running prank on Drake, Breezy served as the doctor working on repairing Drake’s appendix.
A great way to show the world that they are indeed past the BS that once was the focal point of the urban music industry, the skit is also just as funny.

Drake had the sports world laughing and cheering as he hosted the 2014 ESPY Awards on Wednesday night. The Young Money superstar had many surprises in store for the audience with various comical skits, but one that has everyone talking was his performance of a song called “Side Pieces,” in which he was joined on stage by R&B legend Brian McKnight.
Looking like he just stepped off a boat in the tropics, wearing a cream colored linen outfit, and performing in front a breezy island sunset scene, the rapper/singer sang about the world of side chicks in professional sports.
“This goes out to all my side pieces, you know you’ll never be the main one / City to city I’ll see you when we’re in the same one,” he sang before introducing Brian McKnight, who asked all the side pieces in training to wave their hands in the air.
