Drake had a big surprise for fans attending his Summer Sixteen tour stop in Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday (Aug. 13).
To assist him on “Pop Style,” the Toronto rapper brought out basketball MVP LeBron James, who’s fresh off signing a three-year, $100 million deal to stay with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“Ohio, if you don’t make some noise for The King right now you’re out of your mind,” Drake told the crowd as James stepped out. “Now we gotta do it for old time’s sake.”
James made good use of his time on stage, dancing along to “Pop Style — from Drake’s latest album, Views — and helping the rapper with the chorus. Drake altered the song’s lyrics in honor of his guest, rapping, “Bronny, Bronny had to handle that one his way.”
“Yo, one time, Columbus Ohio, give it up for Drizzy motherf—ing Drake,” James told the crowd before leaving. ”And one more time for my brother Future who killed this shit tonight.”
Drake added one last bit of appreciation before James left the stage. “One more time, for the man who came back home and brought a motherf—ing championship instead of doing anything different,” he said. “Make some noise for The King, LeBron James is here tonight. It’s love, man. That’s a hometown hero right there.”
