Drake’s Gonna Be on ‘Ellen’ Next Week
Drake is going to be all over television. After Drake was recently announced as the host of Saturday Night Live's upcoming episode on May 14, the rapper's plate is full with a promo confirming an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on May 18.
The promo video sees a tiny Drake on top of Ellen DeGeneres' head as the two show off their moves to the tune of the OVO Sound artist's hit single "One Dance." This won't be Drake's first time on Ellen as he previously appeared on the show around the release of his Nothing Was the Same LP.
In the aftermath of the Views album release, Drake is clearly ready to get back in public eye for some more interviews. The Toronto native's most recent conversation took place with Nardwuar and included some big revelations. Drake admitted that Jimmy Prime and Oliver North actually came up with "The Six" nickname for Toronto. Drake is widely given credit for the name, but the rapper/singer conceded that he did not create the term.
As one might expect, Views is currently helping Drake to dominated the charts. But Drizzy is essentially running them at this point as the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the week of May 21 includes 20 tracks by Drake. The single "One Dance" is atop the chart as it earned Drake his first No. 1 single of his career as a leading artist. He had previously been No. 1 as a guest on Rihanna's singles "Work" and "What's My Name."
