Drake groups with Vegas Elvis chapel to promote new album

Several hundred folks descended on Graceland Marriage ceremony Chapel on Wednesday, and it was not for a massive Elvis-themed wedding ceremony.

It was all simply because of Drake.

The rap celebrity referred to as up a pop-up at the famed chapel in downtown Las Vegas. From midday to 3 p.m., admirers ended up invited to choose up free T-shirts endorsing the forthcoming “Certified Lover Boy” album. Drake’s newest is due out Friday.

Concerning 500-600 admirers turned out for the function. The 3 models of shirts were all black, all Nike clothing (with whom Drake has an endorsement deal) and emblazoned with what seem to be to be lyrics from the new album: “Something Other Than Me Has Got To Give,” “I Really do not Miss out on, Allow By yourself Overlook You,” and “Should’ve Claimed You Liked Me Right now Due to the fact Tomorrow Is A New Working day.”

We presume this tactic is play off the album’s “Lover” topic. Drake’s social media posts have shown the Graceland title, and customers of his stability workforce (however not the artist himself) showed up to oversee Wednesday’s grand giveaway.

Graceland’s team is hopeful that the moment the album is out, Drake and the chapel can lover more in some notable ability.

“We really like that they are tying ‘love’ with the wedding day chapel, that it’s all intertwined,” Graceland basic supervisor Rod Musum explained. “We like that we can be associated with somebody like Drake. It delivers in a full new audience who’s it’s possible not aware of the Elvis-design and style chapel we have. Becoming portion of Drake’s manufacturer is fantastic.”
