So it looks like Drake was having a good time celebrating his 26th birthday at Compound nightclub in Atlanta. Rather than sobbing into a glass of rosé about groupie love and the impending, inevitable 30s, as you might expect him to do, he had the crowd (which included Wale and his own dad) going wild with an energetic performance of three recent hits. First he went in over that frenetic beat from “Pop That“, letting the crowd take over for Weezy‘s verse, then he performed his 2 Chainz collaboration ”No Lie“, with a lot of help from the ATL locals. In the final video, he talks about graduating from high school at long last, and drops “HYFR“, which will soon become essential listening at all birthdays/weddings/graduations/bar mitzvahs/any other coming of age ceremonies you can think of…
Note: Drake’s actual birthday is this Wednesday, the 24th October.
Watch him perform “Pop That” below:
