Drake celebrated the #1 debut of Thank Me Later by performing on the Tonight Show last night. The 23-year-old’s latest single, the moody, mid-tempo “Find Your Love,” climbed up to #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, and Drizz and his band offered up a version for the Jay Leno crowd that had a bit of a bluesy twang to it. Dig it after the jump.
With all the pressure of how Thank Me Later would debut off him now, Drake really seemed to be having a good time while singing the tune. Check out his emotional squawk at about 1:59 in, followed shortly by a big grin and him sticking his tongue out.
The Toronto singer/rapper will have some stiff competition staring him down on next week’s chart, however, as Eminem’s Recovery looks set to bulldoze every other album in its path.
Billboard reports that Slim’s latest could sell upwards of 600,000 copies by week’s end.
