"You know, Drake is not done on tv very often, so I think that when it does it is a real event," he said. "We have built a truly great relationship with your team, work creatively with them and comes up with a great idea, and I think it's going to be a very, very big moment in the show. It is not a surprise, necessarily, but it's going to be a time in which people are not exactly what I expected.... It's going to be memorable, I promise you that."
The night is very special for Dreezy as he has 22 nominations, including top Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Rap Artist and Top Billboard 200 album with VIEWS. Bracco, explained the work that was taken to ensure that Drake's appearance coincides with your Board foot.
"We were talking with Drake's people for months about doing the program," he said. "Obviously then became the main candidate and that is a big problem and trying to come up with something really different and unique and exciting and spectacular... And that is what Drake you deserve is a great, great time and, luckily, in working with your team, I think we have come up with something so creative that it's going to be really amazing."
