We had a sneaking suspicion that this might happen.



The curious timing of a long-awaited Detroit appearance from America's royal family, Bey and Jay, just so happened to coincide with back-to-back shows of our beloved Champagne Papi, Drake. The result? For a couple days, we can pretend that Detroit is the new Coachella.

In a video posted by the Beyonce Legion Twitter account, Drizzy himself was spotted side-stage of Beyonce and Jay-Z's On The Run tour stop at Ford Field. Here he is pointing, shaking hands, and being all kinds of lowkey amazing.


And here's a GIF of Drizzy hugging it out with Jay in what feels to be a super intimate embrace that screams "we out here!"

And here he is practically gliding alongside DJ "I don't eat pussy" Khaled.

Here he has his singing along with his back turned to Jay because he can do that.
But wait. We've got a celebrity conspiracy theory.


Will Bey and Jay stop by LCA? Was this the plan all along? Seeing that their next performance is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 16 in Columbus, Ohio – a mere 3-hour and 29-minute drive from Detroit – the likelihood that they will attempt to return home or stay holed up in a hotel room or tour bus is slim. Will they be flying above the crowd in a floating Ferrari because, spoiler alert, Drake legit does that? Does LCA have throne seating? Will they collab? Is this the end of the world that those dang Mayans were always warning us about?

What the next 48-hours holds for Bey, Jay, and Dray is anybody's guess. But Detroit is totally here for it.
