Jack Harlow Brings Drake to Town for Derby

Jack Harlow did more than feature Drake on his new song “Churchill Downs,” he’s brought him there. Or at least is showing him Louisville during the Derby. 

Louisville native rapper Harlow was spotted around town with the Canadian legend Drake on Derby Eve, which also happened to be the day Harlow’s new album, Come Home The Kids Miss You, dropped

They showed up at Seviche, one of Harlow’s favorite places to eat, according to an Instagram post from chef/owner Anthony Lamas. (Comedian Druski was there, too.)

Harlow also filmed Drake dancing to Mariah Carey tunes in his Instagram story. 

Drake posted a Louisville postcard to Instagram, too.

Harlow attended a Derby Eve party at 21c Museum Hotel last night for a fundraiser raising money for the Western Kentucky Tornado fund. 

In “Churchill Downs,” Drake references the Derby, rapping, “Kentucky Derby races, my presence in the spot is so abrasive. Box at the Churchill Downs, that’s motivation, yeah.”

A demo of the track “Churchill Downs” leaked in April, which Harlow told the New York City radio station Hot 97 “hurt his feelings” because it wasn’t ready to be released yet, although Drake advised him not to worry about it.

Drake hasn’t shown up to Churchill Downs yet today, with Harlow appearing alone on the red carpet. He’s set to give the “Rider’s Up” call at the track later today.
