Drake Reflects On Hearing The Weeknd’s Music For The First Time

Drake The Weeknd

OVOXO forever.

Ahead of ’s tour kickoff tonight, took to Instagram to reflect on the first time he heard his Canadian brother. He revisited the location where his manager Oliver El-Khatib played him ’s music in the driveway of a building where he once lived in Toronto.

“This little driveway area right here is the first place that I ever heard ’s music,” recalled. “We were parked out here, it was raining, and that same guy is selling out the SkyDome tomorrow.”

He went on to reflect on ’s inspirational journey. “That man is selling out the SkyDome tomorrow, so I just want anybody that’s trying to do this shit to understand, like, I heard this man’s music right here for the first time. Pouring rain. It’s a great life.”

After a brief fallout, the two reunited at ’s birthday party in Las Vegas in February, where toasted the “Blinding Lights” singer.

“I was there from day one and I’m grateful not only to be here with my brothers, but just grateful that the family is back together where we belong from the greatest city in the world,” he said.

The Weeknd will kick off his “After Hours Til Dawn” world tour tonight with a sold-out show at Rogers Centre, formerly the SkyDome, in his hometown of Toronto. The North American leg of the stadium trek wraps Sept. 3 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
