Drake’s opening act is J. Cole. Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz and French Montana will also support unspecified dates.
The Club Paradise Tour kicks off on May 7th in Concord, California.
The current young member – Jordan Todosey – of the Canadian hit DeGrassi recently implied she would like to follow in Drake’s footsteps.
“I love acting, so I’d love to stay in acting,” she said. “But music is such a passion of mine and I write songs and sing, so I think it’d be so much fun to break into the music industry too.”
