Rapper Drake was recently booed off stage during his surprise headliner performance at Tyler The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles on Sunday (Nov. 10) possibly because fans were expecting singer Frank Ocean.

Drake had a nine-track setlist, according to Setlist.FM. Rolling Stone reports the Toronto rapper’s set came to an abrupt halt after Drake performed his single “Wu-Tang Forever” from his album Nothing Was The Same.

A clip that’s gone viral shows footage from the performance where Drake asks the crowd to clap for themselves. Drake then tells them, “Like I said, I’m here for you tonight, if you want to keep going, I will keep going tonight. What’s up? If you want to keep going, I will keep going tonight.”

The audience then began yelling a myriad of “boos” and “nos”  in response, and then Drake shook his head. “It’s been love, I love y’all, I go by the name of Drake,” Drizzy said before walking off the stage.

Over the past few weeks, Ocean has been releasing new music, which would have made Camp Flog Gnaw a possible golden place to return to the stage. In another video from the festival, the audience can be heard yelling, “We want Frank, we want Frank!”
