Drake has undergone “last-minute treatment” on his ankle to prepare for his upcoming shows at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.
The update comes after Drizzy pushed back the date of the show twice. While God 6 was supposed to take the iconic Apollo stage last November, he was delayed the show after TakeOff’s death. He then delayed the broadcasts again to January 21 and 22 due to “production delays.”
In a post on Instagram, Drake confirmed that the broadcasts were still on after undergoing what he called the “best” health care of his life at Atria in New York City.
“Thank you Atria NY for the best healthcare experience I’ve ever had,” Drake wrote alongside a carousel of photos. “Let’s see what I can do on this shit-ankle Saturday.”
Surprisingly, it won’t be the first time Drake’s music fills the halls of the Apollo Theatre. Lauryn Hill had previously performed a remix to his smash hit “Nice For What,” which samples her classic track “Ex-Factor,” during a gig at the venue back in 2018.
Drake also ushered in his Apollo weekend introducing OVO Sound’s first female member into the world on Friday (January 20). Dutch/Caribbean singer Naomi Sharon was announced as the list’s latest signee, and Drizzy celebrated her arrival with a candid Instagram post.
“@naomisharon I’ve waited too long for this day now when the world finally gets to digest the insane amount of work you’ve put in since we met,” he wrote. “My dear friend just dropped his single Another Life on OVO SOUND.”
Sharon thanked Drake for her Instagram storieswrites, “Words can’t express how happy I am. I can finally share this news with the world. And I can’t thank you enough for this crazy opportunity.”
Noah “40” Shebib also praised the new OVO singer, writing in his own Instagram posts: “@naomisharon I am honored to be a part of this journey. I’m so proud of you and can’t wait for the world to hear the rest of what you’ve been working on. New music out NOW! @ovosound.”
Naomi Sharon joins Drake, PARTYNEXTDOOR, dvsn, Popcaan, Majid Jordan, Roy Woods and Baka Not Nice on OVO Sound’s roster. Born in Rotterdam, the singer released her first single “The Moon” in 2019, with follow-up tracks “Breeze”, “Hills” and “Daughter of the Sun” each accumulating over two million streams on Spotify alone.
