Drake has become the latest artist to have been hit by a random object onstage.
A fan threw their mobile phone to the rapper as he kicked off his world tour It’s All a Blur on Wednesday, July 5. The incident happened during his performance of So Anxious by Ginuwine.
As seen in a video that has gone viral on social media, Drake continued on with his cover even after his arm got hit by the cellphone. He acted like nothing happened and simply watched it land on the floor.

This comes less than a month after singer Bebe Rexha collapsed onstage after a phone came flying towards her and slammed against the side of her head. She had to undergo three stitches on her head to treat the injury.
Just recently, Grammy winner Adele talked about how concertgoers seem to be “forgetting” how to behave during concerts. “Have you noticed how people are forgetting f—king show etiquette at the moment? People are throwing s--- on stage. Have you seen that?” she said. “I f—king dare you—I dare you [to] throw something at me. I’ll f—king kill you.”
“Stop throwing things at the artist,” she added.
