Drake Filmed Himself On Fan’s Phone At Lollapalooza Argentina

Drake's Lollapalooza Argentina set wowed thousands yet also disappointed many, although one lucky fan got a great video on their phone after Drake picked it up. Moreover, Drizzy filmed himself performing "Way 2 Sexy" on stage, as if he was taking a selfie video for the Gram. Instead, he left it as a gift to the phone's owner, who obviously shared the flex on social media. Also, he graced fans with a treat by letting them sing Argentina's unofficial World Cup song, which became their triumph song after their victory. However, other surprises the Canadian superstar had in store were less than pleasing.

According to fan testimonies and various Latin American outlets, Drake's performance underdelivered on a few promises. First, many recounted that he showed up late to his set, resulting in about fifteen minutes of dead air. In addition, he reportedly did not allow his performance to be live-streamed, which is uncommon for the festival. Finally, fans expressed disappointment in his 40-minute set length, given that headliners usually perform for about an hour and a half or so.

Drake Gives A Fan's Phone A Close-Up Show At Lollapalooza Argentina

Still, many of these complaints and logistical issues currently hold no blame, although reports indicate that Drake blocked the livestream just minutes before appearing on stage. Furthermore, Lollapalooza said that they had a previous agreement to stream the show normally, and that they "lament the artist's decision." Said message appeared on the livestream during Drake's performance, answering fan questions as to why no such footage appeared. However, Drake's upcoming tour with 21 Savage will hopefully not bring about those issues.

Despite more shows on the way, Argentine fans might not even be able to afford the show if they're in North America for the tour to make up for this performance. Moreover, many fans took to social media to show their outrage over insanely high ticket prices. Considering the 36-year-old's massive audience and appeal, such raucous demand probably warrants a steep price. With all that in mind, the rapper and singer hasn't addressed these issues yet, so fans don't know who's really responsible for those circumstances. Regardless, come back to HNHH to stay updated on the latest news and developments concerning Drake.
