Lil Baby surprised fans at Montreal’s Metro Metro Festival with a guest appearance from Drake. On Saturday (May 21), the Toronto- and Atlanta-bred natives joined forces as Lil Baby delivered their collaboration “Wants and Needs.” According to iHeart Media, the pair continued to perform their most recent link-up “Girls Want Girls” from Drake’s 2021 album Certified Lover Boy.
“I haven’t been to Montreal in like six fu**ing years,” said the chart-topping Drizzy to the audience. “And I’ve been waiting to get back here. So I was wondering if you’d be so kind to let me repo this set for a second and do some songs for my peoples?”
Once he got the okay from Lil Baby to take over, Drake performed a medley of his own songs including “Way 2 Sexy,” “Laugh Now Cry Later,” “Nonstop,” “Headlines,” and “Knife Talk.”
