Drake Announces OVO Fest 2019 Lineup, B2K, Lloyd, Mario, Bobby V, Pretty Ricky & More

Published

Drake is bringing the Millennium Tour to OVO Fest.

The Toronto rapper announced the details for his ninth annual Toronto music festival on his Instagram page early Thursday morning. The lineup includes the acts from the “Millennium Tour” including B2K, Mario, Pretty Ricky, Lloyd, Ying Yang Twins, Chingy and Bobby V. The weekend kicks off July 29 with the OVO Bounce which will be held until August 2. Additionally, the OVO Summit will take place on August 1-2. There is also a good chance that Drake will brought out his dancehall comrade Popcaan as a surprised guest.

That all leads up to Sunday’s concert that will be reminiscent of the Millennium Tour that grossed a total of $5 million for headliners B2K, according to Billboard, after hitting the road for a little over two months.

It will be interesting to see if all of the B2K band members are in attendance after the recent drama making headlines between lead singer Omarion and Love and Hip-Hop Hollywood star Lil Fizz. It has been reported that Lil Fizz is dating Omarion’s baby mother of two children Apryl Jones who all but confirmed it in her social media posts, one of which Lil Fizz is seen laying in bed with her. Maybe the two will put their differences aside to grace the stage in Toronto.

The grand finale of the weekend, of course, will be headlined by Aubrey himself on August 5. Drake has also used his Instagram to hint that he is in the studio working on a new album, so it will be interesting to see if it drops before the festival.

He released two songs last month after the Toronto Raptors won the NBA Championship, Omerta, and Money in the Grave featuring Rick Ross.

Tickets go on sale Friday, July 12. On Wednesday, Rolling Stone reported that Drake earned the top spot on the magazine’s Artists 500 Chart pulling in 110.8 million song streams for the week June 28-July 4.

Drake is getting sued by another female.

The good thing for the Canadian rapper is that this lawsuit not related to any alleged sexual misconduct, but the bad news is that he is getting sued. Amanda Giovacco, 24, of Staten Island, filed a lawsuit against Drake claiming that she received brain injuries at his concert at Madison Square Garden in August 2016 when someone threw a beer bottle that hit her in the head. She is also suing Madison Square Garden and Live Nation claiming negligence in allowing the crowd to get raucous, Page Six reported.

“Amanda Giovacco, was violently struck by a beer bottle that was thrown while attending the Drake concert, was maliciously and without just cause provocation, subjected to a battery,” her lawsuit claims.

Giovacco argued in her lawsuit that the venue was negligent when they allowed vendors to serve “excessive amounts of alcohol” to partygoers and that the venue was overcrowded with inadequate security. She accused the venue of improperly serving partygoers beer in glass bottles instead of plastic containers, one of which hit her in the head causing permanent damages.

The 24-year-old female also claimed that Drake has a history of violence at his concerts and that Live Nation and Madison Square Gardens didn’t take enough steps to ensure that the venue was safe. She claimed that she “sustained a traumatic brain injury and seizures,” which derailed her dreams of going to medical school.

Drake has not yet responded to the lawsuit.
