The first weekend of the Coachella Arts & Music Festival came to an end on Sunday night with rap’s biggest star. Drake closed Day 3 of Coachella 2015, with an energetic 75-minute set, reminding fans of the long list of hits he’s accumulated over his six-year run. The Canadian superstar covered nothing but hits from his first three solo LPs (Thank Me Later, Take Care, Nothing Was the Same), recent guest features (“Blessings,” “Truffle Butter,” “Who Do You Love?”), and newer records off his chart-topping If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late mixtape (“Legend,” “10 Bands,” “Know Yourself”).
