Drake Toronto Symphony Orchestra

Watch the Toronto Symphony Orchestra cover Drake

Buffy Sainte-Marie was the big winner at yesterday's Polaris Prize gala, taking home $50,000 in prize money for her latest album Power in the Blood. Other nominees also took to the stage to perform with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO).

Drake, on the other hand, who was nominated for If You're Reading This It's Too Late, was tied up in a collaboration of his own because he and Susur Lee opened their new King West restaurant Fring's last night. But that doesn't mean he was completely absent from the Polaris proceedings.

While the rapper may have been elsewhere, the TSO covered "Know Yourself," providing a haunting new take on the now quintessential Toronto track. Check out the the video below.
