After topping the charts with “God’s Plan,” Drake gives back in the feel-good video for “God’s Plan.”
Helmed by Director X, the heartwarming clip finds the 6 God giving away nearly $1 million on a charitable spree through Miami. He stops at a supermarket and pays for groceries, presents a high school student with a $50,000 check for a scholarship to the University of Miami, and treats three women to a shopping spree at Saks Fifth Avenue alongside Pittsburgh Steelers star Antonio Brown.
But that’s not all. Drizzy also gifts a sprinter van to the Overtown Youth Center, presents a $20,000 check to the City of Miami Fire Department, and gives aways toys and $50,000 to the Lotus House Women’s Shelter.
Drake’s mother Sandy Graham also makes a quick cameo at the end. “You gotta make sure you take care of your mom too, no matter what you do,” Drizzy tells a young man. “That’s all we got, trust me. That’s my world too.”
According to the opening credits, the budget for the video was $996,631.90. “We gave it all away. Don’t tell the label…” says the disclaimer.
The song, which was released as part of Drake’s Scary Hours project, has remained No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks and shattered all sorts of records in the process.
