Take your loved one to a Drake concert on Valentine's Day at your own risk, because you could very well end up alone by the end of the night. This is exactly the sort of challenge that many folks in South Florida will face this coming February as the Toronto rapper launches his "Club Paradise" tour February 14 at the Bank United Center at the University of Miami.
He is dubbed "the Michael Bublé of rap" by the Big Ghost Chronicles -- we might opt for the James Taylor or the Mitt Romney of rap if prompted -- but the guy possesses what many would consider a wealth of charisma. In all seriousness, anyone who didn't think "Marvin's Room" was a bit of a mopey drag (and isn't at the Diplo/Sleigh Bells show at Grand Central) should enjoy this event.
