Drake announces promising lineup for his 2019 OVO Fest
Drizzy season is here.
Today (July 11), Drake announced the lineup for his ninth annual OVO Fest in a post uploaded to Instagram. For this year’s event, fans will be blessed with performances by B2K, Mario, Pretty Ricky, Ying Yang Twins, Chingy, Bobby V and Lloyd. These performances will take place on Sunday, Aug. 4. As for the event’s final night, Aug. 5, Champagne Papi will take the stage, which I’m sure Drizzy will have more surprises up his sleeve.
“9th Annual OVO Fest Tickets On Sale Friday,” he wrote as the caption.
Last month, Drake confirmed that his festival was indeed making a comeback. During a victory parade that took place in Toronto for the Raptors, Drake hopped on the mic and shared the exciting news with the crowd.
“I hope all these guys will join me this year because we bringing OVO Fest back, so I hope we can go crazy!” Drake revealed to the excited crowd.
In the past, Drake’s music festival has seen performances by Kanye West, JAY-Z, Eminem, The Weeknd, J. Cole and many more. As if planning the festival isn’t enough to keep him busy, Drake announced that he is currently in album mode. While uploading a series of photos to social media, the 32-year-old rapper showed that he was hard at work.
“Album mode. A series of photos shot by @jamilgshere,” he wrote as the caption.
More recently, Drizzy released two new singles “Money in the Grave,” which features Rick Ross and “Omertà” in celebration of the Toronto Raptors’ bringing home a victory in the NBA Finals. The Rick Ross-assisted track helped Drake earn his 35th Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He now has more Top 10 hits than The Beatles.
