Drake: Criticism makes me feel relevant

Drake maintains his aplomb in the face of criticism.

The Canadian rapper commenced his Club Paradise Concert Tour earlier this month.

Drake recognises that some people may not appreciate his work, but he will continue to produce his music despite others' opinions.

"There will be days when I walk in an arena and people will cheer and then there might be days when I walk in an arena and people might boo, but it all sounds the same to me because it's all just noise that lets me know that I'm relevant," Drake told MTV News.

"I don't get booed. I don't face that. [M]y challenge is more with social media and open opinions and people just feeling like they need to talk."

Drake is driven by his conviction.

"It's important for me to let my fans know I really don't care. I'm confident," he explained. "I love the music I make and the videos I make and the people I associate with and every decision I've ever made."

Drake's 65-date North American and European tour will end in London, England on July 7.
