Drake Gloats About 'Utmost Respect' for Chris Brown at Los Angeles Concert

The 'God's Plan' singer and the 'Party' crooner reunite onstage for the first time in eight years on October 12 for a collaboration during the former's 'Aubrey and The Three Migos Tour' gig.

AceShowbiz - Drake heaped praise on R&B singer Chris Brown on Friday, October 12 as they reunited onstage for the first time in eight years.

The "God's Plan" star introduced Brown as a special guest during his "Aubrey and The Three Migos Tour" stop in Los Angeles, where he shared his admiration for the 29 year old's talents.

"I want to share this moment with y'all tonight," he said. "This is something I waited a long time for. I got the utmost respect - I think this guy's one of the most talented human beings on the planet."

"I never really got my chance to show him (my appreciation), so I figured tonight, in Staples Center, with each and every one of y'all, it would be the perfect time to share this moment."

Drake then introduced Brown to perform his songs "Party" and "Freaky Friday".

The pair previously teamed up to play a show in Virginia back in 2010, but endured a brief rivalry after Drake was linked to Brown's ex-girlfriend Rihanna, who Chris infamously assaulted in 2009.

The feud came to a head in 2012, when their entourages became embroiled in a violent altercation at a New York nightclub, but the stars soon made amends, and in social media posts after Friday's gig, it was clear the live reunion had been a joy for both parties.

Joking about get-together, Drake shared an Instagram snap if himself and Chris onstage, and insisted it was real, quipping, "This is not a fan edit."

"Last time I was on stage with Breezy (Brown) was 2009 (sic) at Virginia Commonwealth University...tonight I got to reconnect with him for the first night at Staples!" he continued. "I love a good full circle moment. Thank you."

Chris also posted pictures from the show and captioned one of the old pals, "2 KINGZ (sic)!"
