April 15, 2015 | D&LEveryone was talking about Drake and that ‘unfortunate’ kiss from Madonna, as it stood out as a highlight from the first weekend of the Coachella festival this month. The Canadian singer/rapper brought Madonna out as part of his act when performing on stage and although their interaction was planned, it appeared that the ‘intimate’ kiss was not, judging by the look of horror on Drake’s face.
Whilst we’re not sure what they had rehearsed, Drake did later comment on the event saying he was totally cool with it and “got to make out with the Queen”.
However, Madonna’s response was quite the opposite, as she received a lot of backlash on social media for her ‘forceful’ PDA, which resulted in her lashing out at her haters in response.
Following the mishap is news of a six date tour that Drake is hosting alongside rapper, Future. It’s clear that this tour has been planned for some time now, but what great timing for Drake, as fans were still talking about his Coachella performance!
The Jungle Tour is a great pairing of the two talents, as they both bring something different to the music scene, as well as the stage when they perform. Drake is a double threat with his ability to sing and rap, as well as the versatility he provides, which is why he appeals to both the ladies and the fellas.
Future has only recently caught the attention of fans with his music over the past couple of years, but with his Southern roots and unique sound that stays true to his own surroundings and upbringing, he’s one talent that will continue to reach out to those who can relate.
On May 24th Drake and Future will start things off in Houston, then travel to Detroit, Chicago, Montreal, Toronto and New York. Then, later in July (3rd), Drake is set to headline the UK’s Wireless Festival alongside Big Sean and J.Cole. Tickets are available now.
