Drake tops the popmusiclife Pop 10

News of Drake’s 2012 North American tour tops this week's popmusiclife Pop 10.

The 17-city headlining tour kicks off on Valentine's Day in Miami and runs through March 11, and will be followed by a series of European dates.

Drake will be joined on the road by Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky.

"I fought for this tour, I fought really hard for this tour because, of course, they want me to go get the big bucks, go into the stadiums and cash out," Drake revealed to MTV News in October about the decision to play more intimate shows. "But I was just like, I really made this album for the same people that supported me since day one."
