Byenyn's Review of ABDC Drake Challenge

Last week, nine crews expressed themselves to the songs of Madonna. The voting public decided it really didn’t like Canadians, Mexicans, or crews named after car crashes. The judges saved Collizion, leaving Funkdation and Irratik to simultaneously walk it out. Presumably to their native countries, never to return to the US again. So now the seven remaining American crews will perform to the music of rapper and former child actor, Aubrey “Drake” Graham.

In addition, their challenge is to take a significant lyric from their selected Drake song and “bring it to life.” I don’t really GET Drake’s songs since they all pretty much talk about being famous, so this challenge should provide some much needed spice. If nothing else, this is going to be an interesting episode to study. The musical shift from Madonna to Drake is significant, and it’s going to be a challenge to see which crews will keep up. So what happened this week?
