Drake staged yet another unusual collaboration this week when he appeared at Toronto’s HISTORY nightclub with Nelly Furtado after performing with the Backstreet Boys in the city last month.
Rapper Choclair, Canada’s “Queen of R&B” Jully Black, Canada’s Got Talent judge Kardinal Offishall, Crabbuckit hip-hop star k-os, Let Your Backbone Slide singer Maestro Fresh Wes, Vancouver’s Rascalz, and others performed at the “All Canadian North Stars,” which the Grammy-winning singer hosted at the east-end venue.
But the unexpected presence of British Columbia’s Furtado, who sang Promiscuous Girl and I’m Like A Bird, had fans giddy on social media.

“Thank goodness I’m a nice, humble, well-spoken — I like to deal with people the right way — because that’s the only way that you can get this next person out of the house to come do what they’re gonna do right now,” Drake addressed the audience before Furtado performed live for the first time since 2017, Drake addressed the audience.
“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. This next person’s changed my life so much, I love her so much,” he continued.
