“Would You Like A Tour?” Why yes, Drake, we would. Especially after the hits “Started From the Bottom", “Hold On, We're Going Home" and "All Me" from 2013’s Nothing Was the Same shot up the charts and into our hearts. A tour is just what we’d like.
Before rapper and singer Drake began writing his signature, highly confessional songs to critical, peer and public acclaim, he spent eight years playing Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian teen comedy-drama, Degrassi High: the Next Generation. After leaving TV, he turned his attention to music, self-releasing recordings that made several labels take notice. What ensued was “one of the biggest bidding wars ever,” according to Billboard -- an unsurprising turnout, given that his rapping skills, poetic lyrics and pop sensibilities also garnered the early support of Jay-Z and Lil Wayne. His first full-length album, Thank Me Later (2010), produced the platinum hit “Find Your Love.” Drake would solidify his pop icon status by releasing Take Care in 2011, featuring “The Motto” -- the song that coined the popular acronym YOLO (“you only live once”), which became a global rally cry for thrill seekers everywhere. In support of his 2013 album Nothing Was the Same Drake kicked off a North American tour that sent fans scrambling for tickets to catch his unforgettable live performances.
