Drake stepped in for DJ Khaled after he had to cancel his headlining performance at the 2018 Wireless Festival. Get the deets, plus peep performances by J. Cole, Rick Ross, French Montana, Migos, and more inside…

DJ Khaled was originally scheduled to hit the stage at the 2018 Wireless Festival in London yesterday. He pulled out for "travel issues" and folks originally called B.S. on it all, seeing that he was still parlaying on vacay on Instagram:

Event organizers had to pull a fast one to replace him due to said "travel issues" just hours before his set. Magically, they were able to pull some strings and were able to nab Drake for a performance.

But get this….event organizers had BEEN known Khaled wasn’t going to be able to make it. In fact, they knew MONTHS before the scheduled performance:

Why wouldn’t they tell fans earlier or try to book someone sooner? Sheesh. This could have ended in concert tragedy, Friar Festival style.

 

 

Fresh from the release of his new SCORPION album, Drizzy popped up on stage surprising fans with a medley of his hits. He performed a few new tracks from his new album for the first time, including "8 Out of 10," "Mob Ties," "Nonstop" and "In My Feelings," which has since gone viral.

Drizzy fans have been posting videos for the latest viral dance challenge, #InMyFeelingsChallenge. The Young Money rapper even showed off some of his dance moves during the track’s intro. Ha!

Peep a few clips from his performance below:

Drake’s SCORPION album just made history! It’s the first album to reach 1 BILLION streams in a week. We must note, we hear Spotify users were automatically directed to Drake’s album on release day whenever they opened their app.  Still, congrats!
