In the statement, the singer says that the film is very close to his heart but he won't be able to attend TIFF tonight due to scheduling commitments on his current Scorpion tour with Migos.
While there are no concerts tonight, when Drake was supposed to be in Toronto, the tour is getting ready for a weekend of shows in Boston, with three shows in the next couple of days.
This isn't the first time Drake has cancelled a Toronto appearance. Just a couple of weeks ago Drake and Migosone of the Toronto stops of their tour, also on the day of the show, leaving some fans disappointed.
These latest last-minute cancellations have definitely thrown the festival for a bit of a loop, according to one Canadian reporter who shared behind the scenes photos of the theatre and party that were already decorated specifically for Drake.
The film will still premiere as scheduled at the festival tonight. Monsters and Men is about the state of police brutality and relations with the black community.
