Rae Sremmurd, French Montana, & Playboi Carti were also special guests Monday night at OVO Fest as well.
On Monday night, Drake held his 8th annual OVO Fest in Toronto, Canada, where fellow OVO signees PARTYNEXTDOOR, dvsn, Majid Jordan, and Roy Woods all took the stage to perform some of their hits. But as we’ve seen in the years past, Drake usually has a few tricks & special guests up his sleeve, and Monday night was no different.
After Rae Sremmurd came out to perform their smash hit "Unforgettable" with French Montana, the 6 God decided to bring out non-other than ex-foe Tory Lanez, who performed his hit remix of “Controlla.” Of course the home crowd went nuts considering these two past history together, but they squashed that beef back in April when they both shared a couple photos on IG with one another.
Drake would go on & tell the crowd that Tory is a "great guy"... "Me & this guy right here. We had problems with each other, we had never even met each other. I met the man, and he's a great guy."
In addition to Tory however, Drake also brought out Cardi B, who performed “Bodak Yellow,” which Drake called “the hottest song out,” Migos, who performed their smash “Bad & Boujee” & “T-Shirt,” and Travis Scott, who helped perform their More Life collab “Portland.” La Flame also went on to perform “Butterfly Effect” then “Goosebumps,” before PartyNextDoor then came out.
(Good) footage of the evening has yet to surface as the show is currently going on right now, but we’ll be sure to update y’all when it becomes available. For now, check out some of the tweets & clips (below).
