Drake started from the bottom and now you are going to hear him now more than ever as you enjoy football on Monday nights.
Just a couple of weeks after Drake cryptically revealed the release date of his new “Certified Lover Boy” album on “SportsCenter,” the network has announced that it will work with the rapper throughout the entire NFL season to curate music for select Monday Night Football games.
ESPN has collaborated with Drake to choose music that “encapsulates both the energy and mood” of the games. This will include a combination of Drake’s most recent releases, potentially some classics, as well as new music from other artists he identifies.
“Now we are here…the kickoff of the football season. And who better to curate music for Monday Night Football than Drake who sits firmly at the intersection of music and sports. We couldn’t be more excited for this upcoming collaboration,” said Emeka Ofodile, Vice President of Sports Marketing, ESPN. “The music curator role has been a big hit with our fans with Diplo and DJ Khaled in previous years….and this season, we will be living inside the moment with Drake as our NFL on ESPN soundtrack.”
As you know, Drake is a massive sports fans, as he was seen multiple times during the Toronto Raptors’ championship run.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
