After joining the Backstreet Boys on stage earlier this month, Drake gave fans another nostalgic moment for his hometown.
On Thursday night, during the “All Canadian North Stars” show in History in Toronto, she led Canadian friend Nelly Furtado to launch the three-day October World Weekend.
Described as “a celebration of music that paves the way for us all”, the concert featured beloved Canadian acts such as Cardinal Offishall, Choclair, Jully Black, Rascalz and Keshia Chante.
But the biggest surprise of the evening was when he brought out Furtado.
“I don’t care how loud you sang tonight, right now I need you to sing as loud as you possibly can, because this right here, took a lot,” he told the crowd. “This next person’s music changed my life so much. I love her with all my heart so when she comes out here, you better show her some fu**ing love too.”

Furtado, who hasn’t toured since 2017, hit the stage to perform the Timbaland-produced “Promiscuous.”
She then took it back with her 2000s hit “I’m Like a Bird” with some help from Drake. “This is your choir tonight,” he told her as the crowd sang along.
“Drake and nelly furtado singing i’m like a bird together.. this is canadian history,” tweeted one fan.
