Drake‘s ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour hit Montreal last night (July 14), with the rapper welcoming J. Cole to the stage in place of the absent 21 Savage.

Drake and Savage are currently heading around North America in support of their collaborative album ‘Her Loss’.

At the Montreal show, Savage wasn’t present, but Drake welcomed Cole to the stage by way of apology to his fans.

During his cameo, Cole and Drake played 2014 collaboration ‘No Role Modelz’ before Cole played a short solo set of his own tracks including ‘Wet Dreamz’ and ‘Middle Child’.

He then also covered Savage’s track ‘A Lot’ as a nod to his absent friend.

See footage from the show below.

The ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour began last month at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, where Drake and Savage delivered a mammoth 48-song set that included numerous live debuts and rarities.

The rapper at one point performed as a large hologram of a sperm floated above him. Another visual of a group of sperm cells, meanwhile, appeared to circle him on stage.
