Back in April, Drake confirmed that he will be the host of this year’s ESPYs, ESPN’s award show which recognizes athletic achievement on the professional level. Now, the rapper appears in the first promotional clip for the upcoming ceremony.
“What a year in sports,” Drizzy says in a 30-second teaser. “It happened, now it happens again at the ESPYs.”
Drake joins a short list of musicians who have handled hosting duties for the ESPYs — previous hosts include Justin Timberlake and Jamie Foxx.
Fans can expect the ESPYs to air live from theNokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday, July 16, at 9 p.m. ET.
