Together at the 2010 VMAs they performed his stellar single Fancy off his current album Thank Me Later.
What did Drake think of working with an artist like Mary J Bilge?
Drake was very complimentary of the hip hop legend before the show “Her vocals are what make it so sweet. What’s more classy, more fancy than Mary J. Blige? I’m not sure. She is the epitome of class, in my opinion. It’s more of a real theater production than it is a performance. It’s really a lot of acting.”
His debut on the VMA stage is obviously one of many to come if his debut record is any indication. Drake sold 447,000 records in his first week with the Thank Me Later album. Rumors are already running rampant about a sequel to be coming as early as Christmas of this year.
