“Treat yourself don’t cheat yourself.”

The “new dance experience” Drake teased over the weekend is actually a strip club.

The Toronto rapper announced mystery Houston event The Ballet via Instagram on Sunday, uploading a flyer accompanied by the caption “we are giving you the chance to experience something that’s here to stay.”

However, during the launch of his pop-up at the city’s Toyota Center last night, it was revealed that he is in fact opening a strip club in Houston, offering a “different take on how it should be done.”

“Treat yourself don’t cheat yourself,” Drake wrote on Instagram, describing the club as a place “where the women are on a pedestal and the surroundings are unforgettable.”


The ‘Hotline Bling’ artist told the crowd at the launch that “there’s a culture out there of dancing and it’s not about no strip club shit, it’s about these amazing women that we’ve got in one spot, the music that we’ve got, and the Houston culture that we got.” He promised that he is “going to bring it to you in the most honest and genuine way possible.”

The Ballet will open in the city next year.
