The day after Canada Day, Drake hit the stage for a surprise appearance at Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square.

The Sunday night concert was on part of City Hall’s Canada 150 event, day three of the four-day Canada Days music festival. dvsn, Majid Jordan and Roy Woods, all of whom are artists on Drake’s OVOSounds label, were scheduled to perform, and brought Drake out.

680 NEWS reporter Momin Qureshi was there, and tweeted a photo of the event.

Drake posted about the event on Instagram, including a photo of himself and friends watching the fireworks. For the show, he wore a shirt with the Rolling Stones ‘mouth’ logo, with a Canadian flag on the tongue.

The City of Toronto also released photos of Drake performing. Those photos, and other tweets about the event, can be seen below.
