Drake is a famous rapper most known for his song “One Dance” that became a worldwide sensation and peaking at the Billboard number 1 spot in 15 different countries.

However, Drake’s new tour celebrating his new album, “Her Loss,” has been getting alot of criticism due to him remixing songs on the setlist, making it hard for the audience to sing along to their favorite songs.

User Akiro_23 took to Reddit to share his problem with Drake’s song choices.

“The energy at the show was awesome, but I don’t understand why he sang most songs at a different rhythm?” Akiro said.

Most die-hard fans of Drake know all his songs by heart, so when he sings them in a different rhythm, it can throw fans off and make them frustrated.

However, the majority of fans still loved the show despite the changes, and say that overall, the atmosphere was still amazing, making it a  night they will always remember.

Jbkanime on Reddit also says how although the show was amazing, he wished Drake did things differently.

“He has always done this but I really noticed it on this tour. I do agree trying to sing along does throw you off a bit. Not a huge fan of it personally but the show is still great,” Jbkanime said.

Fans are starting to come up with explanations for why he chose to do this during the concert. Some say it’s because Drake gets tired of performing the same songs, so he wants to change it up a bit with different tempos and rhythm.

Others say it’s more about breath control after performing an hour-long concert every weekend, and he doesn’t want to strain his voice.

Whatever the reason is, many people are unhappy with this decision. While some might not agree with his choice of music, they choose to still enjoy the show regardless.
