“We’re up on this riser and Drake’s also there watching the show along with another few artists. I was like, ‘I’m going to go say hi, he must remember me,’” Mendes said, adding that he’s only met Drake “like twice.”
“So I go over to him and touch his side. Next thing I know I’m in the middle of The Weeknd show with my arm hooked behind my back. Drake’s security guard has me completely at his mercy,” Mendes explained.

“I see Drake look over, my eyes I knew it was like, ‘Help me, please Drake.’ In that moment, if he didn’t know who I was it would’ve been the most embarrassing, I don’t know what I would’ve done. I would’ve been in jail,” he said as he remembered that Drake came over and personally told the guard to let go of Mendes.
Mendes did not make a cameo in any of Drake’s photos from The Weeknd’s concert, but opening acts French Montana and Belly did.
