Following two postponements, Drake performed at Harlem’s iconic Apollo Theater on Saturday night for the first of a pair of concerts there this weekend.
The intimate concert, presented by SiriusXM in tandem with Drizzy’s radio show Sound 42, saw the Toronto rapper run through a set of numerous classic B-sides, including Thank Me Later’s “Karaoke,” Take Care’s “Over My Dead Body,” Nothing Was the Same’s “Wu-Tang Forever,” If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’s “Jungle,” Views’ “Feel No Ways,” and Scorpion’s “Jaded,” among others.
The setlist also featured some of Drake’s biggest hits (“Started From the Bottom,” “One Dance,” “God’s Plan”), as well as a handful of tracks off his and 21 Savage’s 2022 collaborative effort Her Loss (“Rich Flex,” “Privileged Rappers,” “Spin Bout You”).
Near the end of the set, Drake acknowledged the run he’s having in his career and thanked the crowd for being there throughout the entire process, before teasing a forthcoming project. “I hope I can strike up more emotions for you,” he said. “Maybe this year. I might get bored and make another one. Who knows.”
