The Weeknd returned home on Friday (May 26), as his “Starboy: Legend of the Fall” tour pulled into Toronto for the first of two shows this weekend. Two months after sharing the stage together in the U.K., the XO crooner and Drake came together once again, this time for their hometown crowd. The 6 God made a surprise appearance last night, performing a medley of “Jumpman,” “Gyalchester” and “Fake Love” for the sold-out crowd.

I came out here for one reason and for one reason only,” said Drake. “To support one of the most important artists of this generation…he goes by the name of The Weeknd. We started this OVOXO shit together and we can never let it die.”

Lil Yachty swung by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to celebrate the release of his debut album, Teenage Emotions. Rocking a sky blue suit similar to the one he wore in the song’s video, Lil Boat performed his prom night anthem “Bring It Back” for the L.A. crowd. His album is bound to divide opinion, but it looks like Yachty’s just having fun.

vic mensa pharrell

Still no word on when his long-awaited album Traffic is set to arrive, but best believe Vic Mensa is sitting on a ton of music right now. During a performance at Wesleyan University’s Spring Fling in Middletown, Connecticut earlier this month, the Chicago rapper gave fans a preview of one heater he’s got in the stash, which features (and by the sounds of it, was also produced by) Pharrell. Given his knack for blurring the lines between rap and rock, it was only a matter of time before Vic linked up with Skateboard P.

Let’s hope Roc Nation green lights Traffic sooner than lighter.

Travi$ Scott’s “Birds Eye View” tour pulled into The Criterion in Oklahoma City, OK last weekend. Known for his wild show filled with unexpected moments, La Flame created another unforgettable moment that night. Getting into his latest hit single “Goosebumps,” $cott performed the song not once, but 14 times in a row as the crowd got more rowdy each time.

Doing the song 14 times sets a new world record for the most times performing a song at one show, surpassing JAY Z and Kanye West’s “Ni**as In Paris.” Back in 2012 during their “Watch the Throne” tour stop in Paris, the two rap heavyweights did their Hit-Boy produced classic 12 times in a row at the Palais Omnisports Paris Bercy.
