Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that very few can command a stage quite like Drake.
Packing a passion that so many contemporary male acts are afraid to embrace, the performer showcased the best of his live muscle during last night’s annual ‘OVO Fest‘, birthed this time to support his brand new album ‘Nothing Was The Same.’
While there, he served a moving rendition of TLC‘s Dallas Austin penned ‘FanMail‘, going onto surprise his audience with an appearance from the ladies themselves!
Were they any good?
As long time supporters of the group, it kills us to say that this performance just wasn’t it.
For, while the effort was there, the ‘CD quality’ vocals had us wondering why the ladies are yet to record ‘live versions’ of their set list, as to give the illusion that they’re performing them live.
Time consuming? Yes- but well worth it and sure to be undetectable if produced correctly (see Drake’s performance above and Janet’s below.)
Perhaps, if time permits, the ladies should call in Kim Burse to aid them in polishing their moves and developing a show that’s authentically ‘TLC‘ without seeming dated…as the above did at times.
