Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling recording artist Drake is set to perform at the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield next week.

The rap star comes to the Motorpoint Arena on Friday, March 12 from 7.30pm.

Drake’s new album ”Nothing Was The Same” – one of the most critically acclaimed and feverishly anticipated new albums of the year – debuted at number 1 on the US Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and entered the UK album chart at number 2. The album has already been certified Platinum in the US and also features his brand new single “Too Much”.

Debuting to widespread acclaim from music writers and critics, in its four-star review of NOTHING WAS THE SAME, Rolling Stone hailed, “Drake makes his best yet,” and the New York Times declared, “…Drake is on top now, the genre’s stylistic standard-bearer and its most reliable and versatile hit maker…”

Drake enjoyed a landmark 2013, winning his first-ever Grammy Award in the category of “Best Rap Album” for his critically revered platinum album, “Take Care”, and has remained a distinctive presence across both hip-hop and popular culture.

Following their collaboration on the track “Live For”, fellow Canadian The Weeknd will be joining Drake as a special guest on all UK dates. The track – which clocked up over half a million plays on Soundcloud in one day when revealed online earlier this year – is taken from The Weeknd’s second full-length album “Kiss Land”.
