Other massive stars who performed at the festivity included Rae Sremmurd, Playboi Carti, Cardi B, French Montana and PARTYNEXTDOOR.
Drake literally hosted a star-studded show at the 8th annual OVO Fest on Monday, August 7. Fans went wild when he brought out fellow Canadian artist The Weeknd. The two joined forces to perform their smash hit song "Crew Love". While sharing the stage, Drizzy confirmed that joint project with the "Starboy" hitmaker would likely happen in the near future.
"I want you to understand what this is," the rapper said to The Weeknd. "First of all, I don't want to do this to you onstage, but I feel like that OVOXO project has to happen at some point, I just want to say that."
There was a quite touching moment during the show when Drake invited Tory Lanez to join him onstage. The "Hotline Bling" hitmaker officially squashed beef with his former nemesis as saying, "Me and this guy right here. We had problems with each other, we had never even met each other. I met the man, and he's a great guy." The two then teamed up to perform Tory's "Controlla" remix.
Also performing at the fest was the hottest hip-hop trio today, Migos. The group delivered show-stopping performances of their hit songs, "Bad and Boujee" and "T-Shirt", before one of the members Quavo joined Drake and Travis Scott (II) to perform "Portland". Travis later took the stage for himself while belting out "Butterfly Effect" and "Goosebumps".
Drizzy injected the night with more excitement when he brought out someone "the ladies are gonna f**king love," who turned out to be Cardi B, to perform "the biggest f**kin' record in the world right now," "Bodak Yellow".

More hip-hop acts joined in the fun as Playboi Carti rocked the stage with live rendition of "Magnolia" and "wokeuplikethis", while Rae Sremmurd performed their hit single "Black Beatles". French Montana later appeared to join the duo for electrifying performance of "Unforgettable". Other performers included PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan, Roy Woods and dvsn.
Drake finished off the show with a sudden announcement. Before dropping his mic and walking off the stage, the spitter told the crowd, "I'm back to making this new album. In Toronto. Just for you. I will see you next year. Maybe bigger, maybe better. I go by the name of Drake. It's an OVO Sound ting for life."
The announcement came five months since the release of Drizzy's chart-topping playlist project "More Life". While he didn't reveal the new album he's working on, it will most probably be the sequel of "Take Care". Last month, the 30-year-old rapper teased about the new effort with cryptic Instagram photo which resembled the artwork of the 2011 album.
