The Metro Festival in Montreal ends today, but Lil Baby was the headlining artist on Saturday evening. In typical festival tradition, he used his time on stage to bring out a very special guest, Drake, to sing their hit collaboration “Girls Want Girls,” from Champagne Papi’s Certified Lover Boy album.
The crowd was ecstatic to see Drizzy make an appearance, and they sang along word for word while the Toronto native cheered them up, according to footage recorded by a showgoer. Drake and Baby have previously shown their admiration for one another on the road; in 2018, the latter joined the former for the final leg of his Aubrey & The Three Amigos Tour in Atlanta, Georgia.
Other Saturday shows prior to Drake’s surprise pitstop came from Nana Zen, David Campana, Emma Beko, Naya Ali, and Niska. However, today is the last day of Montreal’s Metro Metro Festival, and while we’ve already seen performances from Trippie Redd, Tory Lanez, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Don Toliver, Polo G, Sheck Wes, and Lakeyah, there’s still Lil Tecca, DaBaby, and 50 Cent to see.
In other news, Machine Gun Kelly revealed ahead of the premiere of his Good Mourning film that Drake almost played “Fake Drake” on-screen in his directorial debut, but scheduling conflicts and budgetary constraints prevented it. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates.
