Drake says he has to ‘reassess what went wrong with my judgment’ following Coachella headline set

Many fans and critics perceived the rapper's performance as lacklustre

Drake has responded to criticism of his recent headline set at Coachella.

During his first weekend performance at the festival, Drake was joined onstage by Madonna, with the pair engaging in an awkward kiss. The star’s second weekend performance on Sunday night (April 19) saw a more low-key cameo from Nicki Minaj, with Minaj not appearing to sing or say anything during the brief appearance.

Now, in a FourPins profile, writer Ernest Baker reveals that Drake had acknowledged his perceived lacklustre set at the first weekend leg, stating in a text to the author: “I took an L for the first time. I just have to reassess what went wrong with my judgment.”


Drake was forced to explain his reaction to kissing Madonna at the first weekend of Coachella, telling fans not to “misinterpret my shock” and adding that he would “feel 100% about that forever” after he initially appeared to grimace following the kiss.

It has also been revealed that Drake will team up with Beyonce for a track on his next album. The Toronto rapper recently dropped his ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ mixtape, but has already named its follow-up to be called ‘Views From The 6’.

Drake has been described as having “two songs finished” for his upcoming fourth album, which he wants to “inspire a paradigm shift” in his music.
