Video: Drake – ‘Headlines’

Drake

The real is on the rise. Drake puts on the gloves and gets back to business in the video for “Headlines,” the first single from his sophomore album Take Care, due October 24. The fast-paced clip, co-directed by Lamar Taylor and Hyghly Alleyne, was filmed in various locations throughout his hometown of Toronto.

The Young Money rapper rounds up his OVO crew in front of the historic Guild, shows off his stable of Range Rovers, takes the field at Toronto’s Rogers Centre as Take Care lights up the marquee, and toasts to the good life over a lavish dinner (sweater swag and cigar in full effect). Drizzy’s home.

    @Triniti, lol CLASSIC- one of the best comments Iv seen, IMO i love the look, at least we know by the time he is 40 he wont wear baggy jeans lol

    Lisa Reply:

    @Triniti, Cliff Huxtable (Bill Cosby for those who are not familiar with The Cosby Show) is that man! I’d pick a well dressed man over a man with his pants down to his knees, oversized shirts and too much ice anyday.
    I have to admit, though, I laughed a little when I read that comment.

    drake’s videos are usually subpar but this video was great. it fits him.

  21. Lisa

    It’s probably my perfectionism that I am now projecting on him, but I feel like whoever came up with the video treatment has been kinda lazy. I don’t ask for a mindblowing music video, but a little more creativity wasn’t too much to ask here.

    Shade Reply:

    @Lisa, Marvin’s Room and Headlines are symbol of him going back to his So Far Gone days. It isn’t all computer effective or overly concepted like regular Pop videos are. It’s the type of video you think a newbie with bunch of friends with no label would make because that is what he is going for.

    @Manplease, it would be even more impressive if the stands were actually filled with ppl. Any current/popular artist can rent a stadium lol, not everyone can fill it!

  23. POOKIE

    I LOVE THE VIDEO EVEN THO I HATE THE IDEA OF THE VIDEO BUT THE DIRECTOR DID A GOOD JOB…the thing i hate is it is so not original, put some labelmates next to me with a bottle of ciroc and a car and maybe a video vixen and a nice background and start the music :/ #LAME BUT LIKE I SAID THE VIDEO IS GOOD!

    [Reply]

    Shade Reply:

    @POOKIE, I don’t get how you call this “so not original” when you’re suggestion has got to be the most unoriginal most used elements in a rap video. *scratches head*
