Drake Drops Michael Jackson Collaboration from Tour Setlist

  /  03.11.2019

Drake kicked off his European tour this weekend and one song was noticeably absent from the setlist.

Sources tell TMZ that Drizzy removed his Scorpion song “Don’t Matter to Me” from the U.K. leg of his international tour.

Drake was performing at Manchester Arena on Sunday (Mar. 10). Fans noticed a mostly similar set from last year’s North American tour sans his Jackson collaboration, which he previously performed in the U.S. during last year’s “Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour.” His cover of “Rock With You” was also axed.

The omission comes in the wake of HBOs’s Leaving Neverland documentary, in which Wade Robson and James Safechuck allege that the late King of Pop sexually abused them when they were children.

It’s unclear whether Drake actually believes the allegations against Jackson, but his actions may speak volumes.

The fallout from the controversial doc continues. Jackson’s album sales have dipped and some radio stations in New Zealand and Canada have announced they will stop playing his music. Producers of “The Simpsons” have also pulled an episode featuring Jackson’s voice from rotation.

Jackson’s family has denied the allegations and come to his defense. T.I. also blasted Jackson’s accusers. “Let this man speak for himself to defend his legacy,” said the rapper. “Don’t just listen to one side and expect to find truth. Oh that’s right…Dead men can’t speak. So what was the point again? Destroy another strong black historical LEGEND?!?!”

Drake’s “Assassination Vacation Tour” with Tory Lanez continues across Europe, with shows in Paris, London, Dublin, and Antwerp, wrapping April 26 in Amsterdam.
