Drake has announced that he is set to open a strip club in Houston, Texas. Yes, you read that right.

The 6 God first teased the announcement at the weekend, describing the venture as a "new dance experience." Although the rapper hails from Toronto not Houston, Drake has long credited the city as being instrumental in the early stages of his career. He even name checks the city in his 2009 song "Houstatlantavegas."

Now, 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.” It's set to be called "The Ballet" and will open in the city sometime in 2017.

Speaking at his pop-up event, Drake told the crowd: "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. I just wanna let you know that I'm going to bring it to you in the most honest and genuine way possible."

He also posted this picture to Instagram, along with the caption, "Tonight is a different take on how it should be done in Houston. Treat yourself don't cheat yourself. Where the women are on a pedestal and the surroundings are unforgettable."
