On Friday (Oct. 12), the rap superstar launched the first of three concerts at the Staples Center in Los Angeles — and among those in the crowd was the Grammy-winning British singer.
After the show, Adele described the concert as “up there with one of my favorite shows of all time” on Twitter.
Oiii Champagne Papi blew my mind tonight! Best production I’ve ever seen hands down and way up there with one of my favorite shows of all time. Huge love ??

Drake soon caught wind of the tweet and gave a humble respond on his Instagram page. “I love this woman and she came to the show. Thank god nobody told me or I would have been SHOOK,” he wrote.
Drake’s performance Friday at Staples Center was the first in a series of seven concerts the rapper will perform with Atlanta hip-hop trio Migos in Los Angeles. The shows are being split between Staples and The Forum.
Another highlight of the Staples show came when Drake brought out Chris Brown to perform the R&B singer’s “Party.” The last time the two artists performed together was in Brown’s home stage of Georgia, Drake said.
“Last time I was on stage with Breezy was 2009 at Virginia Commonwealth University…tonight I got to reconnect with him for the first night at Staples! I love a good full circle moment. Thank you,” Drake captioned an Instagram photo of the two on stage.
