Drake is the latest performer to get hit by an object thrown onstage during a concert performance.
The “Take Care” rapper was struck in the arm by a cell phone, but he didn’t miss a beat and kept performing.
The incident happened Wednesday (July 5) in Chicago during the first stop of his “It’s All A Blur” tour with 21 Savage.
Video posted on Instagram by @2cool2bl0g showed Drizzy belting out a version of Ginuwine’s “So Anxious,” as a phone flew onstage and hit him. Drake looked at his arm, but wasn’t injured.
It’s unclear who tossed the phone at the hip-hop star.

The incident comes after pop star Bebe Rexha was struck in the face and injured by a cell phone during a concert in New York City last month.
Rexha shared photos of her injuries in a June 19 Instagram post, revealing she had a black eye and required stitches. She included the caption, “I’m good.”
Nicolas Malvagna, 27, of Manalapan, New Jersey, was charged with assault and harassment, CBS News reported.
Rexha has since returned to the stage and is now wearing protective goggles during her performances.
Last week, country star Kelsea Ballerini was hit in the face during a show in Boise, Idaho. According to NBC News, Ballerini was performing her hit single “If You Go Down (I’m Goin’ Down Too)” when she was struck.
She briefly stopped singing and a violist checked out her face to make sure she was OK.
After the concert ended, Ballerini took to her Instagram Story to explain what happened.
“Hi. H’m fine. Someone threw a bracelet, it hit me in the eye, and it more so just scared me than hurt me,” she shared.
Guys. I know we all mean well. We all want to show Kelsea love the best way we know how, and shower her with all the gifts. But throwing things on stage where artists are already so vulnerable is NOT the move. If you can’t hand it to her, there are so many other options. Lord,… pic.twitter.com/oIgy2JDn3V
