Drake delivers nostalgia, teases new music at Apollo show

It’s easy to forget how many hit songs Drake created in his nearly 15-year musical career. But he presented an emphatic reminder with an intimate concert at Harlem’s Apollo

Theater on Saturday, his first-ever show at the legendary venue. During the performance, the four-time Grammy winner teased that new music could be on the way, despite

releasing two albums last year. “I thought about a bunch of things in life, but at this moment in time, none of those things are stopping making music for you,” Drake told

the doting crowd. “I hope I can strike up some more emotions for you, maybe this year — I might get bored and make another one.” The first night of two Apollo weekend shows

presented by SiriusXM, featured the 36-year-old ripping off songs at a frantic pace — most with just a verse and chorus — satisfying day-one fans with fan-favorite, deep non-radio

cuts as well as those only familiar with his No. 1 hits. The recorded performances will air on Drake’s SiriusXM Sound 42 channel in the coming weeks. Noting this was his

first show in about five years and later stating “I’ll be out and about on the road a lot this year,” Spotify’s most-streamed artist in the U.S. last year told his captivated

audience the show was about gratefulness. “I wanted to make this a show about gratitude," Drake said. "This is a little story we put together: my deep love for my family,

for my dear friends and each and every one of you that have been supporting me for a long time.”
