Elton John Just Bought a Drake Record at Sonic Boom in Toronto
What a time to be alive, indeed
Published Sep 18, 2018Elton John is currently making his way around the world on his "Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour," but he found time in his busy itinerary to do a bit of record shopping in Toronto earlier today.
The "Rocket Man" singer dropped into Sonic Boom around 1 p.m. this afternoon to peruse the local selection, and ended up purchasing a record by the 6 God himself.
According to one of the Sonic Boom employees that served him, Sir Elton picked up a copy of Drake and Future's What a Time to Be Alive on wax.
They also told Exclaim! that John was "very sweet," "really funny" and surprisingly "totally normal."
It's been a busy summer at the Spadina Ave. store in terms of special guests, with the likes of Billy Corgan, Nile Rodgers and Finn Wolfhard dropping by — but the staff maintain that John was definitely the biggest (or at least the most knightly) star to become a customer in recent memory.

Sonic Boom isn't the only Canadian record store John is a patron of, though. Last year he went digging through the bins at Vancouver's Beat Street Records.
His love of hip-hop was recently immortalized in recorded form, as well. Last month, he released the long-awaited "Rocket Man" remix featuring Young Thug.
