Although he is currently in album mode, Drake appears to be working on other things as well. Today (July 25), SiriusXM announced that they have teamed up with Drizzy and Pandora for a creative partnership.
As reported by Billboard, the partnership will include a radio station dedicated to Champagne Papi, music choices created by Drake and other collaborations from the Toronto spitter. Products from the partnership are expected to roll out later this year.
“SiriusXM and Pandora connect directly to over 100 million fans and this partnership will mark the first major artist collaboration between SiriusXM and Pandora since the companies merged. This is the largest agreement both brands have executed with a major recording artist to date. Drake holds the title of most streamed artist of all time as well as the top selling solo male artist across the US,” the statement reads.
For this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, Drake has racked up several nominations including Song of the Year, Best Hip-Hop and Best Latin. In addition to that, “Euphoria,” which is a new show on HBO that is executively produced by Drake, has been picked up for a second season. Drake shared his excitement while on social media.
“Euphoria picked up for Season 2 OBVIOUSLYYYYYYYYY,” he wrote as his caption.
Last month, Drizzy threw a wrap party for all of the show’s cast members. During the party, the Thank Me Later artist gave away a huge amount of cash.
“Drake came on set a few times,” Algee Smith who plays Chris McKay in the show said. “He threw us a wrap party; he gave away, I don’t want to say how much bread he gave away but he gave us some money at the wrap party. It was hefty. You could buy a couple cars, I’ll say that.”
Congrats to Drake on his latest partnership.
