Drake Cuts Michael Jackson Song From UK Tour Setlist Amid 'Leaving Neverland' Controversy

Drake has censored the setlist for his UK tour and removed his Michael Jackson collab 'Don't Matter To Me'.
Drake's UK tour got off to an incredible start in Manchester as he performed his biggest and best songs to an excited sold-out crowd, but there was a notable song missing from his setlist - his Michael Jackson collaboration 'Don't Matter To Me'.
Fans spotted that the song had been removed from Drake's setlist for his UK tour after it had been included in his North American shows which he performed alongside Migos.
Drake hasn't officially addressed removing the song for his setlist and it's unknown as to whether he'll choose to add it back in later in the tour, but the cut coincidentally comes just days after the Michael Jackson documentary 'Leaving Neverland' aired in the UK.
'Leaving Neverland' saw accusers claim that Michael Jackson had abused them when they were young boys and the claims have seen MJ's songs pulled from radio play around the world whilst his music catalogue has also suffered a dip in online streaming figures.
It's not known whether the 'Leaving Neverland' documentary had any impact on Drake's decision to cut the song from his setlist, but it was a notable omission on the opening night of his Assassination Vacation tour.
