Drake Brings Out Cardi B At OVO Fest 2019, Angers Barbz
Drake’s ninth annual OVO Fest wound up last night (August 5) in Toronto, Canada with a cavalcade of guests including Meek Mill, Chris Brown, Rick Ross and Cardi B. The latter cameo caused a stir on Stan Twitter with many observers interpreting the gesture as a dig at Nicki Minaj. Drizzy’s introduction just added fuel to the fire. “This year the girls have been runnin’ us out of the gym,” he began. “They keep coming with these hard ass verses, they keep coming with these big ass records and Imma tell you there’s one girl that’s been going a little harder.”
“It’s only right that I exit the stage and leave you in the company of grace and greatness,” Drake continued, before Cardi arrived to perform “Press.” The response from Barbz was swift and merciless. “He’s a clown for this,” one fan tweeted. “He lied,” was also a common response. Not that the “Bodak Yellow” chart-topper cares. “Thank you [Drake] for bringing me out at OVO fest,” she captioned an Instagram video (below). “Shit was [fire].” From the footage, it’s hard to disagree with that assessment.
