Drake Closes Out Coachella 2015

blame it on Meka April 13, 2015

With an exciting weekend loaded with performances from The Weeknd, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Azealia Banks, and a host of others, Drake closed out the first weekend of Coachella 2015 with a performance that was equal parts high-energy and, at various points, very awkward.

Kicking things off with – and then closing with a reprise of – the opening track of his latest release If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, the 6 God ran through a medley of tracks including “Headlines,” “Over,” “10 Bands,” and – of course – “Know Yourself.” If you were at home watching the stream, then you may have caught Head-Scratching Moment No. 1 during “Crew Love…”

Things then took a turn for the weirder when, during his performance of “Madonna,” the actual Madge came out. Rocking her obnoxiously stereotypical grill and skimpy outfit, she would then perform “Human Nature” before making Head-Scratching Moment No. 2 happen when she tried to Shang Tsung Aubrey’s soul through his mouth.

(Here’s the video for “Human Nature” for everybody born after 1996, in case you aren’t familiar with the song.)

Despite the kerfuffles, Drake once again put on a pretty good show. You sometimes never realize how many hits he has, exactly, until you see him perform the last half-decade of his musical career into a 90-minute set. Watch the the entire thing below, courtesy of Yardie.
