Nicki Minaj and Drake Share a Kiss at Pink Friday 2 Tour

Fans of Nicki Minaj and Drake witnessed a heartwarming moment this week as Minaj’s Pink Friday 2 Tour made a stop in Drake’s hometown of Toronto. Despite initial hurdles entering Canada last month, Minaj delivered a stellar performance on Tuesday night at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena to a packed crowd.

The highlight of the evening came when Minaj surprised the audience by inviting Drake, Toronto’s beloved son, to join her onstage. Together, they performed “Needle,” a track from Minaj’s Pink Friday 2 album, marking their most recent collaboration. As the performance concluded, Drake took the opportunity to share an affectionate embrace and kiss on Minaj’s cheek before exiting the stage, much to the delight of the audience.

Acknowledging Drake’s significance to the city, Minaj dubbed him “the king of Toronto” and “a legend” as he bid farewell to the crowd. Despite being embroiled in a heated rap feud with Kendrick Lamar, Drake made time to show his support for his longtime label mate Minaj.

In a subtle nod to his ongoing battle with Lamar, Drake hinted at his forthcoming response during his parting words to Minaj and the audience, stating, “I love you so much. You know what time it is, you know what I gotta do.” This statement suggests that Drake is gearing up to address Lamar’s recent diss track, “Euphoria,” which dissected Drake’s career.

Taking stock of the current rap conflicts, Minaj finds herself entangled in a feud with Megan Thee Stallion, while Drake faces off against Lamar. Both sides have exchanged diss tracks, with Megan responding to Minaj’s diss with “Hiss,” and Lamar delivering “Like That” on Future‘s album, both of which garnered significant attention.

As the tensions escalate, the question lingers whether Drake can emerge victorious in his feud with Lamar. Despite the controversies, one thing remains clear – rap beef is undeniably good for business, and Minaj and Drake are not shying away from the fray.
