Drake Welcomes Skepta and Giggs to Surprise Performance at London Club
Drake is turning London into his home away from home, spending an extended stay there for his Boy Meets World tour at the top of the month, and circling back Thursday night (Feb. 16) for a surprise cub performance at nightclub XOYO. He of course brought some friends with him, brining out UK rappers Skepta and Giggs.
The show was originally for local act Smoke Dawg but turned into a much bigger event that even Giggs wasn't expecting. "Last night I threw on a tracksuit with a plan to quickly step out, eat a quick food,go home and catch up on some sleep. Next thing I know,this is happening...." he wrote on Instagram.
In numerous clips below, Drake performs "Energy" off his If You're Reading This It's Too Late, the crowd going into hysterics as the instrumental first begins to play. The Boy Meets World continues through March stopping in France and Germany, with Drake saying previously that his next release, More Life, would be out before the tour wrapped up. Last week in Leeds, England he said, “I’m excited, because no matter what, I’m about life. I’m about a week and a half, two weeks away from finishing this project I’m working on called More Life.”
Peep footage from the surprise club performance below. Drake also recently played a snippet of an unreleased song that seems to be called "No Question." Hear that at the very bottom.
