Drake’s OVO Fest blew fans away for another year in Toronto, this time with Drizzy literally bringing his city to the stage, by creating an amazing replica of Toronto’s CN Tower, which became a meme after the artwork for Drake’s Views album was released.
But in addition to the hours of great music and production, another highlight of the evening included a very unexpected surprise performance. For a very special performance of Drake’s track ‘Controlla’, rapper Tory Lanez joined Drake for an epic live remix. While the two have famously had bad blood in the past, it appears that all is well in the 6.
Check out some fan footage of the performance below.
The legendary Nardwuar has delivered another memorable interview full of gifts, vinyl records, quotes and more, this time with Canadian singer and OVO Sound’s PARTYNEXTDOOR.
Speaking with PND while he was on-site at the Faded In The Park music festival, Nardwuar brought Party back to his Trinidad and Jamaican roots with a number of retro LPs and even dug up Drake’s first appearance on vinyl.
Watch Nardwuar’s interview with PARTYNEXTDOOR below.

In anticipation of his forthcoming third studio album, PARTYNEXTDOOR 3, OVO Sound singer/producer PARTYNEXTDOOR has released his newest record, ‘Don’t Do It For You No More.’ While the new track isn’t off PND’s forthcoming project, it’s certainly a nice bonus to tide fans over until P3 drops August 12th on OVO Sound. ‘Don’t Do It For You No More’ was produced by Bizness Boi, Th3ory and Soufwest and it should definitely last you for the next week.
Listen to PND’s new record, ‘Don’t Do It For You No More’, below.
Earlier today OVO Sound’s, Majid Jordan announced the official dates for their forthcoming North American tour.

Tickets for this anticipated tour go on sale in just a couple days (this Friday) at MajidJordan.com so definitely be sure to get some before they are all gone.

Nigerian artist Wizkid’s infamous song “Ojuelegba” was discovered by many people after playing on OVO Sound’s Beats 1 radio station last Saturday. The surprise remix with Drake and Skepta premiered on OVO Sound Radio without an announcement beforehand. Today, Skepta released the official audio on his SoundCloud. Listen to the summer jam below.
Last night OVO Sound‘s PARTYNEXTDOOR brought his North American tour (which closes tonight in Minneapolis) to The Rave in Milwaukee, WI. Performing a number of tracks from his self titled project and its PARTYNEXTDOOR 2 sequel, PND brought his R&B party to the sold-out crowd. Check out our photos below as The Early Registration’s Dan Garcia was there to catch the best moments of the night, and if you’re overseas you can still catch PND’s European leg of the tour (which kicks March 24th in Oslo).
It has been awhile since we have got new news from Drake. Although ‘0-100’ was Grammy nominated and the song of the summer in 2014, the year was still relatively quite for Drizzy.

Watch the Karim Huu Do directed 14-minute short film, full of footage from Drake’s come up and even some snippets of new music, below.
A new EP from OVO Sound‘s PARTYNEXTDOOR just may have leaked as four new tracks have appeared online, but not from the source itself as PARTYNEXTDOOR has not yet tweeted about the release. Check out the awesome new tracks below while they are still up and be sure to check him out on his upcoming world tour.
