He was in Baltimore, dining at Azumi in East Harbor with five of his friends, so he asked the restaurant to play the album when the clock struck midnight. Because he's Drake, they said yes.
“While we normally have our own DJ’s music playing through the speakers, we were able to accommodate him and they listened to Jay Z’s 4:44 album in its entirety,” Joe Sweeney, spokesman for the Atlas Restaurant Group which owns the Japanese restaurant, told the Baltimore Sun. “Several people walking along the Harbor East promenade approached him for photos and he was more than happy to take pictures with them.”Sweeney also reported that Drake enjoyed the Lychee Martini, the Maryland Signature Roll, and the A-5 Wagyu Ribeye and added that the bartenders and servers found him to be very nice.
Drake has yet to comment on the album, but Kendrick Lamar sure liked it.
