Drake is doing more these days than getting matching tattoos with Rihanna. This weekend, during Houston Appreciation Weekend—Drake’s annual celebration of the city—he announced a new business venture: a strip club.
Drake’s strip club, The Ballet, opens in Houston in early 2017. Drake describes it as a place “where the women are on a pedestal and the surroundings are unforgettable.” Sounds very…Drake. This was his announcement post on IG.
Drake sounds pretty heartfelt about the endeavor. During the event celebrating the forthcoming launch, he said: “There’s a culture out there of dancing and it’s not about no strip club sh-t. It’s about these amazing women that we’ve got in one spot, the music that we’ve got, and the Houston culture that we got. I just wanna let you know that I’m going to bring it to you in the most honest and genuine way possible.”
Here’s footage of that speech.

With The Ballet around, Houston Appreciation Weekend should be even more of a scene next year.
