Drake

After all the controversy, Drake kicked off his “Would You Like a Tour?” trek with a sold-out show at Pittsburgh’s CONSOL Energy Center on Friday night.

Following sets from PARTYNEXTDOOR, Miguel, and Future, the Toronto rapper opened with “Tuscan Leather.” He performed new material off his No. 1 album Nothing Was the Same for the first time including “Worst Behavior,” “305 to My City,” and “Pound Cake.”

At one point, he was elevated on a round platform above the stage so he could see the entire audience and shout them out individually.

“I feel like motherfuckin’ Bon Jovi up here,” joked Drizzy.

The crowd went wild when he brought out Pittsburgh’s own Wiz Khalifa for the city’s anthem “Black and Yellow.” “Bro Drake brought me on stage and I turned into a Pixburgh ratchet. Haha. All good,” tweeted the Taylor Gang MC.

Jhené Aiko also joined him on “From Time” and “Come Thru.” “wow ! i can’t believe that just happened . i am overwhelmed right now !!!!” she wrote.

Despite their dust-up earlier in the week, he showed that he and Future remain cool by bringing him back on stage to perform “Honest” as he rapped along.

“Pittsburgh was Epic,Im forever grateful for my fans.#Honest,” tweeted Future.

The tour continues tonight in Philadelphia and makes its way across the country before winding down in mid-December.

Video: Janelle Monáe f/ Miguel – ‘PrimeTime’

Miguel and Janelle Monáe

Janelle Monáe loves in the future in the emotion picture for “PrimeTime,” her sultry collaboration with Miguel. The singers play lovers in the dark and stylized video, which is set in a Blade Runner-like world.

“‘PrimeTime’ is a love story based on the early adventures of Cindi Mayweather (Janelle Monáe) and her first love Joey Vice (Miguel),” said Janelle of the Alan Ferguson-directed clip. “The Emotion Picture gives a glimpse at Cindi’s humble beginnings as a ‘cyber-server’ at the Electric Sheep nightclub, a syn bar serving high-class ‘show droids’ to the rich and lonely in a dangerous section of Metropolis known as Slop City.”

She continued, “Incidentally, the innovative cybersoul music played at the club directly impacted Cindi, and she began singing and performing her own innovative compositions a short time after quitting this assignment. In addition, Cindi became determined to change the public perception of what an electric lady could be, dream and aspire to after working in the dismal conditions at the club.”

The song is taken from Janelle’s latest album The Electric Lady, which debuted at No. 5 last month.

View their love in “PrimeTime.”
