Drake Live Debut's Seven Songs off "Scorpion"

After DJ Khaled was unable to make his Sunday night set at London’s Wireless Festival, the fest promised “something special” in it's place. As U.K. rapper Giggs neared the end of his set - which was supposed to precede Khaled's - a banner featuring the OVO owl with a Union Jack wing was unfolded over the Main Stage. This left over 50,000 people ready to lose their sh** in speculation that the “something special” would be none other than OVO mob boss, Drizzy Drake.
Giggs first brought out OVO signee Baka to perform “Live Up To My Name”, then shortly segued into "KMT" - Drake's More Life track. Drake then took over for a 30-minute set which featured seven live debuts off his new album, Scorpion. He blessed the crowd with the highly anticipated and highly grossing songs: "8 Out of 10," "In My Feelings," "Nonstop," "I'm Upset," and more.

Before closing out his set with the track that beat both Spotify's and Apple Music's single-day streaming record; God's Plan, Drake told the crowd:
“If you know anything about me, you know I live and die for London, England. You’ve been holding me down for too many years. I was in the middle of my vacation...I left vacation to be with each and every one of you tonight.”

It's true that Drake has now been a long-time proponent of U.K. culture and music. He famously featured a handful of British artists including Jorja Smith, Giggs, and Sampha on his 2016 project More Life. While in the U.K. for his festival appearance, Drake stopped by the iconic Link Up TV studio to record his take on a grime freestyle. Watch the 6-God mimic the notoriously challenging British tempo in his "Behind Bars" segment below:

Dominating the charts is nothing new for Drake. After all, he said it himself best on Scorpion's opening track, "House on both coasts but I live on the charts." Drake doesn't seem to be vacating anytime soon, with Scorpion breaking one billion streams just after its release, and the rapper becoming the first artist since The Beatles to hold seven simultaneous singles on Billboards Top 10.
One of the album's most infectious songs, "In My Feelings," has received the internet's signature meme treatment, and even sparked a new viral dance challenge, the "#InMyFeelingsChallenge." The challenge has caught the attention of numerous celebrities, athletes, and of course Twitter and Instagram communities. Watch Ciara and Russell Wilson take on the challenge below:
