THE BIGGER PICTURE: Barcelona, who are sponsored by Spotify, will take the field on Sunday wearing a special shirt bearing an owl logo used by Drake's record label, OVO. Barca will also be sporting special training tops during their warm-ups that feature the number 50 on the back. This is to mark Drake becoming the first artist to rack up over 50 billion streams on Spotify.
