Drake donates $1 million to Miami community in his latest music video
In his latest music video, Drake decided to give back to the community and he did so by donating $1 million.
Drake is always keen on bringing smiles to people's faces and it seems like the singer has taken it a step further by making his philanthropic interest as part of his music video. On January 19, Drake released his new music video, titled God's Plan and the video has received a lot of attention in a short period of time.
In the video, one can see the rapper giving away almost $1 million to the Miami community. The video begins with an introduction that states “The budget for this video was $996,631.90. We gave it all away. Don’t tell the label…” Throughout the video, one can see Drake making various donations and charitable works.
At first, Drake can be seen giving out a $50,000 scholarship to a University of Miami student. Later, he gives $50,000 to a women’s shelter, $50,000 to a youth center, and $25,000 to after-school programs. The rapper also visits the Miami Fire Department and makes a donation of $20,000.
The Hotline Bling singer also donated $10,000 to University of Michigan's School of Music. In addition to these significant donations, the singer also makes several other donations such as new cars for Miami families, and also handed out stacks of cash to a few mothers and their children.
He also appreciated the work that is done by all the mothers and said, "We’re nothing without our mothers, so thank you.” Drake also walked into a grocery store and announced to the customers that they can purchase any item in the shop and he would pay for it.
“Anything you guys want in the store is free, you can have whatever you guys want,” he can be seen announcing. Soon, all the customers start filing up their carts and even took their kids on a small shopping spree. Drake had previously teased the video in an Instagram snap.
He captioned the picture as, "The most important thing I have ever done in my career."
