MANCHESTER, U.K. – Drake isn’t performing his entire set while on his U.K. tour — and it reportedly has something to do with HBO’s recent Leaving Neverland documentary. According to TMZ, sources close to Drizzy say he purposely removed the Scorpion song “Don’t Matter To Me” from his set, which features vocals from the late King of Pop.

His first performance was at the Manchester Arena on Sunday (March 10) and fans quickly took notice of the omission.

Drake performed the song all though the 2018 North American leg of the tour. On Sunday night, he started with the same opening and closing songs as the U.S. run but “Don’t Matter To Me” was noticeably absent.

Leaving Neverland centers on Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who both allege Jackson sexually abused them as young boys. In the wake of the documentary, radio stations worldwide have stopped playing his music, while The Simpsons’ creators axed a 1991 episode featuring Jackson voicing the character of Leon Kompowsky.
