Drake has yet to announce a tour for his latest album, Certified Lover Boy, but he’s finding ways to make his presence felt at live shows. On Monday (November 30), the 6 God made another surprise appearance at a show in Toronto, Canada — this time for his “Chicago Freestyle” collaborator, Giveon.
The encounter happened when Giveon began playing his song with Drake on the keyboard in front of a sold-out audience. Giveon had the crowd reciting his verse on “Chicago Freestyle” when Drizzy sneaked up behind and surprised the Los Angeles, California native with a hug. The crowd erupted as the two made their way across the stage, but Drake didn’t stay long as he left shortly after that.

“Can’t believe my brother surprised me tonight,” Giveon wrote on his Instagram Story along with a photo of him hugging Drake on Tuesday (November 30). “Toronto! I love you guys. So much love everytime!”

Drake also popped up unannounced at Jack Harlow’s concert in Toronto on November 16. Harlow was performing at History, the city’s new 2,500-capacity venue when he saw Drake watching him from the balcony. The “WHATS POPPIN” rapper stopped his set to acknowledge his idol was in the house.
“Tonight was a dream come true for me for more than one reason,” he told the crowd. “First off, you sold this bitch out. Second, I was halfway through my performance when I looked up and I seen my idol looking at me, man… Toronto, make some noise for the GOAT one time.”
Drake acknowledged the shoutout by putting his hand to his chest and bowing his head, appreciating the kind gesture from his younger peer.
