Ahead of his performances at the Apollo Theater, last weekend, Drake spoke with GQ about reinventing radio with Sound 42. SiriusXM, which presented the New York City concerts, also broadcasts the station. Its something that Scott from SiriusXM was extremely passionate about from the inception of our partnership, Drake told the outlet. Hes been so supportive with us as far as Sound 42 goes. And Sirius offers us the opportunity to be heard far and wide, right? Sirius is just the closest thing we have to those days of glory radio moments and I still get a massive amount of joy premiering music when I know that everyone is listening at the same time.

El-Khatib hosts OVO Sound Radio, which began with Apple Music back in 2015. Me and Oliverand everyone else that has a show on the stationwere just so passionate about music that to have that platform for us to play what we love orwhat we make or just things that wed like people to know aboutits been such a great experience for us, Drake said. And I think it came in two parts: a station that obviously if you have satellite radio you can experience but even initially in the partnership we talked about making it more tangible at some point and I think thats what Apollo was. Gathering what felt like, almost like a friends and family rehearsal for an arena tour. You know we used to do those back in the day. In addition to OVO Sound Radio, Drake also hosts his own show on the station, Table For One. He recently interviewed his Her Loss collaborator, 21 Savage, on the program.
