Clearly Beyonce wasn’t enough. The Super Bowl got greedy with their promos. Even the biggest sporting event on the planet isn’t satisfied until it can incorporate some Drizzy Drake into the proceedings.
Sporting fans, commercial lovers and clueless Australians tuning into Super Bowl 50 this morning were greeted to the exciting (albeit brief) news that everyone’s favourite Toronto musical tyrant, Drake, would be gracing the Grammys with a performance, joining the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd. The short CBS promo sent rap fans into meltdown, with potential rumours that viewers could be treated to another single off the forthcoming and highly anticipated Views From The 6.
Sadly however, the news was so exclusive and so utterly mind blowing that it turned out to be false, and was subsequently shot down by Drake himself in a tongue in cheek tweet.
I am not performing at the Grammy Awards…but hey it’s the thought that counts.

The Grammys would seemingly be the perfect stage for Drizzy to unveil some of his newest musical stylings, however it would seem that he is hellbent on putting the finishing touches on what is arguably the most anticipated rap release of 2016. Fans were treated to Summer Sixteen late last week, courtesy of episode 14 of Drake’s exclusive Beats 1 radio program, OVO Sound Radio. Drake would of course have every reason to perform knowing that his Meek Mill diss track, Back to Back, scored a nomination.
With award shows and global sporting events clamouring for some 6God presence of their own, we can be rest assured that Drake is in for one heck of a 2016; he’s rap’s hottest property, and with Views From The 6 dropping in April, our Drake cravings are about to be satisfied.
