Drake shocks Wireless festival goers with surprise performance

Drake left fans open mouthed as he made a surprise appearance at Wireless Festival in London this evening.

The Canadian rap superstar, 34, appeared on stage alongside headliner Future and the pair performed a five-song set including the live debut of their collaboration Way 2 Sexy –  after his album Certified Lover Boy went to number one.

The words ‘Hey Wireless, the boy is home’ appeared on the main stage screens as the rapper, real name Aubrey Graham, made his first major concert appearance since before the pandemic.

He told the crowd at Crystal Palace in south London: “I miss you with all my heart. It’s been way too long, I forgot what this feels like.”

The performance also included the tracks Life Is Good, Laugh Now Cry Later, What’s Next and Nonstop.

“I would not have wanted my first show back to be anywhere other than Wireless,” he added.

Fans had been hoping Drake would perform after his private jet was spotted flying into the UK earlier this week.

Skepta is due to headline Saturday night of the event, which celebrates grime, UK rap and hip hop, while US trio Migos will headline Sunday.

Friday saw Drake fend off competition from Iron Maiden to secure his fourth number album in the UK with Certified Lover Boy.
