DRAKE DROPS MICHAEL JACKSON COLLAB FROM TOUR SETLIST: REPORT
Drake's "Don't Matter to Me," last year's Scorpion cut featuring previously unheard vocals from Michael Jackson, was absent from the OVO Sound co-founder's setlist for his tour kickoff in Manchester over the weekend.
As Variety and a slew of others pointed out Monday morning, the song was indeed not a part of the proceedings at Manchester Arena, where Drake launched his Assassination Vacation tour with Tory Lanez and Tiffany Calver. The track, co-produced by 40 and Nineteen85, notably did appear on setlists for his previous Aubrey and the Three Migos tour in 2018.
Of course, no official reason has been given by Drake's team regarding the omission of the track from the setlist.
On the addition front, Drake's Manchester Arena stop on Sunday saw the inclusion of fellow Scorpion cut "Peak." As well-studied fans know, this is a big deal:
Though Drake removed the Scorpion cut from his setlist, he also added a new one as well—much to fans' excitement. Watch Drake perform "Peak" for the first time below.
