Review: Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour

Drake got the Staples Center “in their feelings” Friday night as he kicked off his Los Angeles leg of the Aubrey and the Three Migos World Tour. To open the night, Migos, an Atlanta based trio consisting of Takeoff, Quavo and Offset, took the stage. The trio performed some of their hit songs including, “Slippery,” “Ric Flair Drip,” “T-Shirt” and “Bad and Boujee”—just to name a few.

Shortly after, Drake took the stage, starting off his set with the song “8 out of 10” from his new album. The special effects drew the audience’s eyes in immediately with a huge rectangular platform that had a 360-degree view. The stage, displaying graphics like a iPhone, and nature images of water, ice and lava, was the perfect spot for Drake to take over as he ran around hyping up the crowd. Drake continued to perform some of his hit songs including, “Started from the Bottom,” “Jumpman” and “Know Yourself” as the crowd sung along to every lyric. Drake also performed a Lil Baby cover of the song “Yes Indeed” as a yellow sports car flew around the arena.

Shortly after, Drake took a second to thank the people of Los Angeles for the last 10 years of supporting him and helping kickstart his career in the first place. To thank the crowd, he performed a medley of some of his older hits including, “Headlines,” “The Motto” and “All Me,” which were definitely some crowd favorites.​ Migos came back out to sing their hit song “Walk It Talk It” and “Versace” with Drake. They continued by singing “Stir Fry,” and they even brought out special guest Tyga to perform his hit song “Taste.”

Drake returned back to the stage to perform more hit songs of his new album like “That’s How You Feel” and “Jaded.” Drake also performed “Don’t Matter to Me” featuring Michael Jackson, and he then honored him further with a soulful cover of “Rock with You.” As a little break, special effects turned the stage into a basketball court, and Drake brought out a fan to shoot baskets in hopes of winning $25,000. Unfortunately, he did not make the tough half-court shot. The night continued with Drake performing hit after hit. The Toronto rapper pleased the crowd with songs like, “One Dance,” “Hotline Bling” and “Fake Love.” The crowd favorite of the night, “In My Feelings,” was performed as the stage featured an iPhone scrolling through videos of fans doing the famous "In My Feelings" challenge.

Right before ending the night, Drake surprised LA fans by bringing out artist Chris Brown to perform “Party” and “Freaky Friday.” The amazing night of hit performances, a hyped up crowd and all the dancing unfortunately came to an end as Drake ended the night by singing “God’s Plan.” As the crowd began to file out of the arena, Drake shared how happy he is that in light of all the negative news circulating around the world, he can bring people of all races and cultures together for a night of fun and music.

Look out for the rest of Drake’s tour dates in Los Angeles throughout the week and the rest of the Aubrey and the Three Migos world tour.
