Looks like Drake is adding music curator to his resume, with a new gig for football season. With the NFL kicking off on Thursday night with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys, Drizzy will be collaborating with ESPN to curate music for ten Monday Night Football games.
This will include Drake’s latest records from his Certified Lover Boy album, older classics and songs from other artists that the 6 God is fans of.
Emeka Ofodile, the VP Sports Marketing at ESPN had this to say of this:
“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. 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.”
This is coming off the release of his new album and Drake breaking streaming records with Apple Music and Spotify, respectively.
