Drake once promised to turn his “birthday into a lifestyle” in the single “Pop Style” and, with the Andy Warhol-themed bash he just threw, we can say he’s sticking to his promise. The Canadian rapper took a break from his Boy Meets World Tour to celebrate his 31st birthday with friends and family.
Now we can’t say exactly what goes on inside a lavish, invite-only birthday party thrown by Drake (we have some idea thanks to his detailed lyrics and Instagram party pics), but he has provided us multiple avenues for hopping aboard the celebration train. Below, Savoir Flair outlines four ways for Team Drizzy to celebrate Drake’s birthday – both literally and figuratively.
Bake a Drake Cake
We have no idea how the “Drake on Cake” trend started, but we’re willing to bet it has something to do with the fact that “Drake” and “cake” rhyme – not to mention the universal appeal of dessert.

Shop OVO Merch
Another way to celebrate Drake’s birthday is to take a page out of the rapper’s style book, dressing in head-to-toe OVO merchandise. Although you have to be in Los Angeles to shop at the flagship store in person, OVO has launched a comprehensive e-tail site that allows everyone access to the goods.
Pretend You're Drake and Jump Over the Haters
Endless Run – Drizzy Edition is an app in which you embody Aubrey himself and run, jump, and dodge through a minimalist minefield. Curiously, though, he’s not “running through the six”, which seems like an oversight by the developer. We can’t tell you why this app was made, but it exists, and it’s a ton of fun to play.
Throw a Dance Party
Of all the viral dances that have hit the internet in the past few years, nothing has caused a bigger stir than Drake’s awkward “dad” dance in the music video for “Hotline Bling”. Each hilarious move was just destined to be reborn as a GIF. In celebration of the rapper’s birthday, we suggest throwing a dance party to see which of your friends will pull off the best Drake impression.
