Drake and 21 Savage First Night In Atlanta Was Unforgettable

Drake and 21 Savage’s ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour finally made it to Atlanta, and the Hip-Hop’s heavyweights gave the city a night to remember. What felt like the entire city of Atlanta descended upon StateFarm Arena for Drake’s first show here in over five years, and he did not disappoint.

He opened up his set like how he’s done throughout the tour so far, making his legendary walk out through the audience to ‘Look What You Done.’ He followed it up with some of his most iconic tracks from the ‘Take Care’ era, including performing ‘The Real Her’ for the first time on this tour.

21 Savage’s set was equally as memorable. He walked out to his first big hit ‘Red Opps,’ and he kept the hits coming! He performed renditions of ‘Bank Account,’ and he had the entire arena screaming back to him his full guest feature on ‘Peaches & Eggplants.’

But by far, the best part of the show was when 21 and Drake finally hit the stage together to perform their hit collaboration album ‘Her Loss.’ They went through some of the projects best songs including ‘Spin Bout You,’ ‘Rich Flex,’ and ‘Hours In Silence.’

Drake and 21 Savage came to Atlanta and shut the city down. Drake gave much kudos to Atlanta, performing in a ‘Free Young Thug‘ apron and called the city the most important in music. Night 1 was truly for the Day 1 fans of 21 and Drizzy. The myriad of throwback songs gave everyone in StateFarm Arena nostalgia, and that’s what a great concert is supposed to do. Take you back to the moments when you first heard that song or album.

That has always been Drake’s forte, making the emotional connection with his fans.

21 Savage has always been one of Atlanta’s best performers because of his energy, and he showed why he is a hometown hero.

Night 1 was truly an unforgettable blur, and Night 2 will undeniably be more of the same.
