The music run for Drake is just getting started. With Monday Night Football set to return next week, the Certified Lover Boy will slide into music curation for the weekly game.
According to Billboard, The Boy will collaborate with ESPN to score 10 Monday Night Football games. The musical selections will be cuts from his new album, along with classics and additional songs handpicked by Drake.
“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?” Emeka Ofodile, VP sports marketing at ESPN, said in a statement. “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.”
Monday Night Football kicks off with the Las Vegas Raiders hosting the Baltimore Ravens.
