Drake made a surprise appearance during Black Coffee’s Ibiza residency this weekend.

The Canadian rapper and singer joined Black Coffee on stage at his Hï Ibiza gig on Saturday (July 16) for a spin of Drake’s Honestly, Nevermind track ‘Massive’.

Black Coffee co-produced ‘Currents’ and ‘Overdrive’ from Drake’s most recent album, also playing drums on the latter, and featured on Drake’s 2017 mixtape More Life cut ‘Get It Together’.

Black Coffee posted a video of Drake joining him on stage for his song, in which the two hug and dance to the track. He captioned the clip: “If you reading this…..honestly….never mind.”

Drake released his his seventh studio album Honestly, Nevermind last month to a mixed critical response.

The record, which was his first since 2021’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’, left some fans and critics uninspired by what was described as a house and dance album.

However, a video that circulated online shortly after release showed Drake addressing the criticism during a release party in Miami, Florida.

“It’s all good if you don’t get it yet. It’s all good,” he said in the video. “That’s what we do. That’s what we do, we wait for you to catch up. We’re in here though, we caught up already. On to the next. My goodness!”

Last week, Drake’s representatives denied rumours that he was arrested in Sweden.

Representatives for the star told The Hollywood Reporter that rumours circulating on social media were just that, after speculation that Drake had been detained by local police at a Stockholm nightclub, with the hashtag #freedrake being used online.

As documented in a series of Instagram posts, Drake landed at Sweden’s Arlanda airport on July 13 around lunchtime, arriving on his personal Boeing 767 jet dubbed “Air Drake”.

It’s not known why Drake was in the country — be it for business or for personal reasons.

However, yesterday (July 17), Drake posted a series of photos to Instagram, including a document that was titled ‘Information for Those Suspected of a Crime and Subsequently Detained’ and read ‘Polisen’, which translates to ‘the police’ in English. As TMZ reports, it goes on to explain a person’s rights under Swedish law.

It is not yet known if the rapper was arrested or detained, and for what reason.
