1 April, 2012: Drake continues his current UK tour, last night hitting Manchester's MEN Arena to perform tracks from his latest album, 'Take Care' - among his classic R&B hits.
The US rapper, who scored his first ever UK Top Ten hit with Rihanna duet 'Take Care' earlier this year, drew big name fans to his recent London shows including Rihanna herself, plus Tulisa and Florence Welch.
Performing in Manchester, we can't account for who was in the audience, but the slick rapper performed to a screaming crowd, dressed in black and performing in front of a screen full of female faces. Check out our exclusive selection of photos from the show below.
