At the weekend, Drake joined Nelly Furtado on stage in Canada for a rendition of ‘I’m Like A Bird’.

On Thursday (July 28), Drake kicked off his new Toronto-based concert series at local venue History. During the set, Drake ‘I’m Like A Bird’ and ‘Promiscuous’ with Furtado.

Drake told the audience: “I like to deal with people the right way. Because that’s the only way that you can get this next person out of the house to come do what they’re going to do right now.”


“I don’t care how loud you sang tonight…right now I need you to sing as loud as you possibly can because this right here took a lot…This next person’s music changed my life so much. I love her with all my heart, so when she comes out here you better show her some fucking love, too.”

The three-day event continues this evening and will feature sets from Chris Brown and Lil Baby.
