Drake made a good point about the musical community as a whole, sharing that an attack has been discussed as a possibility, but hasn’t happened until now. “We just left from touring in Europe and this was such a real fear we discussed frequently,” he said. “I was crushed today to hear it became a reality. My condolences to all of the families affected and we will be praying for all of Manchester. Also I am praying on peace of mind for Ariana. ?”
