Lil Baby hit a festival crowd with a big surprise.
As part of Montreal’s Metro Metro Festival on Saturday, headliner Baby decided to bring in Drake, as the duo walked through a performance of their Certified lover smash “Girls Want Girls”, along with several other solo tracks.
Of course, Drizzy’s appearance came as a complete surprise to the crowd, who certainly weren’t expecting to see Canadian royalty landing on stage. Videos of the Drake nighttime show floating through a few different songs in addition to the Baby collab, including 2018’s hit “Nonstop” Scorpio.
But of course, what would a Baby x Drizzy mini-set be without 2021’s “Wants and Needs,” and what would any Drake show be without “Headlines?”
It’s not the first time Drake has surprised a crowd, but it’s probably one of the best moments. In 2019, Drake’s surprise appearance at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival didn’t go too well, with fans booing the MC offstage after expecting a surprise performance from Frank Ocean. Drake performed well that night, cutting the set short after asking the crowd if they wanted him to continue, but none of that happened in Canada last weekend.
A video showing last night’s performance shows how well it went. Drizzy came out during “Wants and Needs,” before starring in “Girls Want Girls,” “Laugh Now Cry Later,” “Nonstop,” “Headlines,” “Knife Talk,” and more as he uttered a impromptu speeches as part of the festivities.
“I haven’t been to Montreal in about six fucking years,” Drizzy said. “And I was waiting to come back here. So I was wondering if you would be so kind to let me take over this set for a second and do some songs for my people? »
In addition to heating things up on stage, Baby also promises heat this summer. On Sunday, the Atlanta spitter promised fans – in a somewhat cryptic tweet – that Something will take place in July. He also added flame emojis, so we can only hope it will be as hot as he says.
Baby released his latest solo studio album, My turnback in February 2020, and has since promised fans a “wicked summer” before releasing the tracks “In a Minute” and “Right On” – which we can only hope has an album to back them up.
