Drake is the most recent artist added to the lineup of performers for Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. The Canadian rapper will join Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Kanye West, among others, at this year’s ceremony, The Associated Press reports. He will be perfoming “Started from the Bottom” for the first time on television.
Justin Timberlake and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis led this year’s nominees with six nods each. Timberlake will also receive the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award and is slated to perform – maybe with his former ‘NSync bandmates.
Drake recently teamed with The Weeknd on a collaboration called “Live For” off The Weeknd’s upcoming album. Drake’s new LP, Nothing Was the Same, is due out on September 24th.
The MTV Video Music Awards air live on Sunday from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
