21 Savage, rapper and newly minted U.S. citizen, has exciting news for his fans across the pond. He’s set to make his long-awaited return to the United Kingdom for a spectacular live performance at London’s iconic O2 Arena in November.
On October 7, the artist, originally known as Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, teased his upcoming homecoming with a heartfelt video that showcased snippets from his childhood in Europe.
Accompanied by the emotive strains of Skylar Grey’s “Coming Home,” the video offered glimpses of 21 Savage enjoying childhood activities in the U.K., such as driving bumper cars with local children, playing the drums, going bowling, and spending quality time with his family. The video concluded with a poignant message: “London… I’m Coming Home.”
This announcement follows 21 Savage’s recent collaboration with Drake on the “It’s All A Blur” tour, where he showcased his exceptional talent to audiences in the United States. Now, he’s ready to dazzle his U.K. fans with a special performance scheduled for November 30. Joining him on stage will be some exciting special guests, including Baby Drill and 21 Lil Harold.
This marks the second international performance for the 30-year-old rapper since obtaining his U.S. citizenship earlier this year. His inaugural international show took place in Toronto on October 7 at the prestigious Scotiabank Arena.
During the Toronto performance, Drake, the “6 god” himself, introduced 21 Savage to the audience, emphasizing the significance of the moment. He exclaimed, “Ladies and gentlemen, performing for the first time outside of America in his life. Make some noise for the brother, 21!” The crowd erupted in applause as 21 Savage, along with Drake, united in singing the national anthem of their host country, Canada.
