It turns out Drake is a fan of soccer—and an even bigger fan of Electronic Arts' FIFA series.

This week marks the start of Electronic Entertainment Expo 2013—known to most as E3. To ring in the announcement of its upcoming release FIFA 14, EA enlisted Drizzy to open the event by discussing his love for the series.

"My life takes me to places all around the world—like Barcelona," he began. "I meet people from every walk of life, and no matter where I go, there are two constants: everybody wants to talk soccer, and everyone is playing FIFA. My passion for soccer runs deep, and my respect for the team behind FIFA is just as deep. When I play the game, I can only think about what the development team behind the game [is] doing to make the FIFA I love even better. That's why I've been connected to FIFA in the past, that's why we're connected here today, and of course, in the future. But at the end of the day, I'm just one fan who loves FIFA, a fan who plays a lot of FIFA, and I cannot wait to see the next generation here today."

FIFA 14 hits store shelves on October 15 on Playstation 3, XBOX 360 and PC.
