On Wednesday, June 23, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, MTV will air “Drake: Better Than Good Enough.” The documentary not only shows Drizzy exciting crowds and recording his just-released Thank Me Later album , it also allows the 23-year-old to give insight into his career and personal life in his own words.
In an exclusive preview of the documentary, we see Drake’s preparation for a show on his Away From Home Tour.
“I rarely do the prayer,” says Drake, surrounded by members of his inner circle and road crew. “But I figure tonight is a special night. A night of family. I swear that my stars have aligned in the most magnificent way. More than the success and more than for the money, I’m grateful for my family tonight. Y’all are my family. I love you all so much. God, please bless us. Touch us from the crown of our heads to the sole of our feet. Let us all have an amazing show. God, in your name, we pray. Amen.”
From there, we see Drake start his concert, leading off with “Forever” as the crowd praises him with glass-shattering screams.
“I just want people to walk away… just feeling a little bit more confident about Drake,” he says in a later interview. “In no way do I want people to be like, ’He’s the best. He’s the man.’ ’Cause I really do have a desire to grow and get better. I do want people to walk away and be like, ’OK. OK.’
“My biggest goal when I set out on this tour was to prove a very important facet of an MC’s career,” he continues, “which is commanding a crowd and carrying a performance. I think that’s what takes you from being a rapper to being an artist.”
