TORONTO, CANADA — Drake was feeling sentimental when he hit the stage at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on Monday night. For his 5th annual OVO Fest, he wanted to take hometown fans on a journey through his rise to fame. He moved through his breakout mixtape and three albums, peppering the songs with important stories along the way — and, of course, plenty of cameos.
Lauryn Hill opened the show and the floodgates to a list of guest appearances that included Trey Songz, J. Cole, YG, DJ Khaled, Usher, Tinashe, and his OVO boys; OB Obrien, PartyNextDoor and Majid Jordan. It wasn’t just the cameos that made the night special, however, it was the small things.
