DRAKE GETS BOO’D AT TYLER, THE CREATOR’S CAMP FLOG GNAW CARNIVAL – (11/12/2019)
Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.
Drake ended his surprise performance at Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival this past weekend after receiving boo’s from the crowd. According to Rap-Up, Drizzy was one of the unannounced guests during Sunday’s (November 10th) headlining set at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The outlet reports that many fans were hoping to see Frank Ocean perform, but instead, there were surprises from A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert, and Drake.
Drake hit the stage with is 2013 single “Started From the Bottom,” then performed “Feel No Ways.” The Toronto rapper said, “I’m doing this for my brother Tyler, who started this [event] from nothing. That’s not easy. Tonight, I felt like I had to touch this stage because I’m proud of my brothers, I’m proud of you.”
However, things appear to have went left after Drake performed “Wu-Tang Forever.” He told the crowd, “Flog Gnaw, make some noise for yourself tonight. I’m here for you tonight. If you want to keep going, I will keep going tonight. What’s up?” Some of the audience began to boo, while others yelled “No.” Drake then said, “If you want to keep going. I will keep going tonight.”
The screams intensified before he cut his set short, 20 minutes before it was scheduled to end. Before exiting the stage, Drake said, “If you want to keep going. I will keep going tonight.”
Shortly after, the crowd was heard chanting, “We Want Frank.”
Following the incident, members of the hip-hop community took to social media to share their support for Drake. Kehlani said, “Drake handled that [situation] so raw. Respect.” Dreamville’s J.I.D. also said, “I thought we collectively loved Drake, wat y’all doing?”
TYLER, THE CREATOR RESPONDS
Tyler, the Creator took to Twitter Monday afternoon (November 11th) and addressed Drake being booed at his event. He wrote, “I THOUGHT BRINGING ONE OF THE BIGGEST ARTIST ON THE F**KING PLANET TO A MUSIC FESTIVAL WAS FIRE! BUT FLIPSIDE, A LIL TONE DEAF KNOWING THE SPECIFIC CROWD IT DREW. SOME CREATED A NARRATIVE IN THEIR HEAD AND ACTED OUT LIKE A**HOLES WHEN IT DIDNT COME TRUE AND I DONT F**K WITH THAT.”
He continued, “THIS N***A DID FEEL NO WAYS! SONG IS BEAUTIFUL.

DRAKE ALLEGEDLY REACTS TO INCIDENT

Wasn’t who they wanted to see.’”
HARLEY-DAVIDSON TEAMS UP WITH KATY PERRY FOR ‘HARLEYS IN HAWAII’ SONG – (11/12/2019)
Harley-Davidson teamed up with Katy Perry on her new song, “Harleys In Hawaii” and it should prove to be quite a coup for the company.
The music video has more than 14 million views on YouTube. According to the New York Times, Harley did not pay for the musical endorsement – but they did provide the motorcycles.
Katy mentions the motorcycle brand six times and she rides a hog in the music video. The publicity’s value could be “upwards of $40 million” to Harley-Davidson before taking Spotify streams and social media posts tagged #HarleysinHawaii into account, an influencer marketing executive told the Times.
The product placement is a coup for Harley-Davidson, given Perry has over 100 million Twitter followers and 80 million Instagram followers, and it cost the company next to nothing, the Times reported.
Perry has released a new vertical video for “Harleys in Hawaii,” making the single’s album artwork come to life as she sit atop a motorcycle, donning her multicolored floral turtleneck dress, black headband and white-and-yellow floral statement earrings.
Unlike the “Harleys in Hawaii” music video she premiered with the single on its original October 16th release, Perry’s latest visual shows off her solo venture.
