Drake Falls Ill, CANCELS Wireless Festival Performance Overseas + Jennifer Hudson TITLES Upcoming Album ‘JHUD’
Drake is currently recovering from an illness. And it has caused him to cancel a few festival performances overseas. Meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson has finally revealed the title to her upcoming studio album. Deets inside….
Drake is currently recovering from an undisclosed illness. And now, under doctor’s orders, he will not be headlining the three-day Wireless Festival in London and Birmingham this weekend.
The "Worst Behavior" rapper sent a message out to his fans via the Wireless Festival’s official website saying,
"To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won't be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend. I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me. I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can't wait to come back to make more incredible memories together."
In an attempt to make up for Drizzy’s absence, Live Nation and the festival organizers have pulled out all the stops to keep fans happy. Kanye West (who was already set to perform) will headline an additional show on Saturday for London fans and Birmingham fans will enjoy an extended set from Rudimental and other acts.
Joining Kanye, Pharrell, Outkast, Bruno Mars, Wiz Khalifa, and Iggy Azalea are also scheduled to perform at the Wireless Festival.
Hope he’s better before his 2014 ESPYs hosting gig on July 16th!
