OVO Fest dates back to it’s first debut in 2010, with the event taking place each year up until 2017. Artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wanye, Eminem, The Weeknd, and even Jay-Z have all made guest appearances at the Toronto festival.
At the eighth annual gathering, Drake announced that he was working on a new album, which later was ‘Scorpion’ that dropped late June 2018. Although he hasn’t hinted at a new album yet, he thrilled fans by delivering two new singles in celebration of the Raptors’ championship win.
