Drake Is Coming to Phoenix (Waka Flocka Flame, Too)
Drake in a pensive mood.
Bummed out that Drake skipped Phoenix in favor of Tucson earlier this month?
Drake's latest, Take Care, earned him four Grammy nominations. Tracks like "Lord Knows" and The Weeknd-assisted "Crew Love" found him in exploring new pop heights, and confessional numbers like "Marvin's Room" and "Doing It Wrong" (featuring Stevie Wonder) demonstrated his grip on the quiet, bedroom R&B style he had previously hinted at.
It's interesting to note the openers, J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill and 2 Chainz, acts that show off the tricky balancing act that Drake has managed, with one foot firmly in the mainstream and another in more ambient territory.
