Drake Talks Latest FIFA 14 at EA Sports Gathering
Jun 11, 2013 4:06 AM GMT
On Monday, Drake helped kick-off EA Sports' FIFA 14 campaign. The video game makers released a teaser less than a month ago, advertising Microsoft's latest console. Xbox One is the firm's new venture and FIFA 14 will be key to its launch come fall.
"Everyone wants to talk soccer, and everyone is playing FIFA," said Drizzy.
The Grammy--winning artist went onto praise the game's developers.
"When I play the game, I can only think about what the development team behind the game are doing to make the FIFA I love even better," Drake told those at the conference, before pledging to work with the FIFA team in the future.
He then introduced Matt Bilbey, a member of EA's management team, who oversees the creation of the game, which is a worldwide phenomenon. EA's FIFA Twitter account later thanked Drizzy for his participation at the event.
Drake has been involved with FIFA in the past. He referenced the game in a guest verse on a track with Nickelus F early this year when he said, "Lay back f***ing with FIFA." In 2011, he and Young Money Cash Money star Lil Wayne took to the cameras to promote FIFA 2012 in a commercial which also featured Wayne Rooney and Kaka.
