4pm in Calabasas? More like 4 a.m. in West Hollywood.

That’s how late Drake partied on Tuesday with his close circle of friends — which now seems to include former first daughters Malia and Sasha Obama. Paparazzi caught the pair of sisters, daughters of former President Barack Obama and former Lirst Lady Michelle Obama, leaving the Bird Streets Club on the Sunset Strip earlier this week.

Malia, 25, and Sasha, 22, were seen at an after party that followed Drake and 21 Savage’s It’s A Blur tour performance at Arena, Page Six reported.

Lakers’ LeBron James and son Bronny accompanied rapper Drake to the concert stage at Arena. Drake later told the crowd of the NBA star’s longtime support.

Photos posted by the website show the elder Obama daughter, a Harvard grad and rising screenwriter, wearing chunky, black boots, patterned pants and a sheer lace-up top. Her younger sister, who completed her undergrad studies at USC earlier this year, wore a black, cropped corset, baggy pants and black heels. Their friends also reportedly joined them at the Sunset after party.


Drake and 21 Savage brought their tour to downtown L.A. on Monday and Tuesday. During his first gig, Drake brought out Lakers star LeBron James and his son, Bronny, as he walked through the crowd to the stage.

“I don’t know if you saw who walked me to stage tonight,” Drake said. “But the gentleman that walked me to stage tonight is my brother. He goes by the name of LeBron James.”

It took 14 months to construct the diamond chain, says Alex Moss, Drake’s jeweler. Drake debuted the piece at Lil Baby’s birthday concert in Atlanta.

He recalled how the NBA star was an early supporter and said it was an “honor” to be at Arena with James.

“I gotta do this building justice tonight, so I came to L.A. and I’m about to give you every f— thing I got, I promise you right now,” he added.

Love for Drake isn’t anything new for the Obama family. The rapper has been featured multiple times on the former president’s yearly summer playlists. Among his hits that have made the lists are “Wants and Needs” and “Work.”

Just a year after buying a Beverly Crest compound for $75 million, rapper Drake is putting the home back on the market for $88 million.

For what it’s worth, it seems like the love has been mutual. Drake, who rose to fame as an actor on “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” said in a 2010 interview with Paper that he’d like to play the former president in a biopic. In 2020, Obama gave that casting his stamp of approval and more.


“I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it,” he said.
