Magician Shocks Drake With Lollipop Trick At His Album Launch Party
It takes some guts to show up as a (relatively) unknown magician to a party hosted by Drake - and attended by stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Migos, French Montana, Stormzy, Liam Payne, and Lil' Yachty - and try to steal the show.
That's exactly what London's Julius Dein did when he got an invite from Drizzy himself to party with him to celebrate the launch of his new album Scorpion in London.
He performed a trick that left the multi-platinum selling Canadian artist stunned, which you'd imagine is no mean feat.

The simple trick that he performed involved a lollipop and the rapper himself. Julius pulled out the sweet and asked Drake who his favourite superhero was.
Batman, since you've asked.
Julius then placed the lollipop into his mouth and began to make some strange grinding movements (with his mouth, of course) whilst all the while Drake looked on with a sense of bewilderment. Us too, mate.
Then, the big reveal: he pulled the sweet out of his mouth to reveal that it had become shaped exactly like the head of the caped crusader, Batman.

Drake was shocked. To say he was shocked is somewhat of an understatement. He looked utterly taken aback, almost as if he doesn't watch a lot of magic in his spare time.
Anyway, when I said that he was relatively unknown, I meant unknown as in, he's not as famous as Drake and Leonardo DiCaprio.
One of those is Drake, who has followed him for about a year (so maybe he does watch a lot of magic in his spare time after all!) and that is how he got the invite.
Julius told the BBC: "He messaged me because he was having an album launch party for Scorpion, he just said to come through.
"I made sure, just in case he wanted to see a little trick, I was at the ready."
Despite this being a star-studded room, he didn't film many more of the reaction videos, and for good reason. He said: "Drake has a feel for what I do.
"It's less random than me rocking up to French Montana, who might not have seen my stuff before."
Excellent stuff. Well, he only needed the one reaction video as it turned out. So far it's been shared more than 11,000 times on Twitter, and will have brought his work to the attention of a lot more people.
