The province of Ontario is bailing out Drake after initially turning him down.

Earlier this year his label, OVO Sound, requested $300,000 in provincial funding for OVO Fest, happening at the Molson Amphitheatre on August 2 and 3, but it was denied. The Ontario Music Fund through its Music Futures program did step in with a much smaller amount $45,000 to assist the OVO Sound label.

A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that the $45,000 went to OVO Fest.
