The "Hotline Bling" rapper teased his new venture while opening a pop-up shop at the Toyota Center in the city on Monday night where he told the crowd the club is a "classy new dance experience", reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Drake, who has an on/off relationship with R&B superstar Rihanna, also took to his Instagram account to announce his new venture and confirmed the Texas joint will be opening at the beginning of next year and aims to put women on a "pedestal".

Alongside a picture of what looks like a logo for the company, Drake wrote: "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. The Ballet pop up tonight for HAW. Grand opening early 2017. #HelloWorld (sic)"

The 29-year-old hunk and 28-year-old "Work" hitmaker often enjoy nights out at strip clubs and once spent $17,000 on one trip to a Houston adult club.
