The countdown is on until Drake and 21 Savage take the State Farm Arena stage on Saturday, July 1, and Sunday, July 2.

Drake hopped on Instagram Monday (3/13) morning to announce the tour with a video compilation of previous tours and behind-the-scenes footage throughout the years.

In the last five years, Drake has released four albums, the most recent being “Her Loss” in collaboration with 21 Savage. I’m sure the album’s massive success was an influence on the tour — it reached No. 1 on Billboard’s 200 chart and all 16 songs debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 list.

The dynamic duo has had continued success throughout their careers. The magic started back in 2016, when they released their first-ever collaboration, “Sneakin.” Their other hits include “Mr. Right Now,” “Knife Talk” and “Jimmy Cooks,” which ended up earning the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with more than 42 million streams, three million radio airplay audience impressions, and 6,000 downloads sold in its first week, according to Billboard. “Jimmy Cooks” also marked Drake’s 11th Hot 100 No. 1 and 21 Savage’s second.
