Gods Plan Music Video
Drake is one of the most famous hip-hop artists alive right now. He burst onto the scene in 2009 with Best I Ever Had. He has had numerous collaborations with Lil’ Wayne, who until recently was on top of the charts. Drake had success last year with his song Passionfruit, and God’s Plan was released in January of 2018. I also loved listening to Cardi B’s newest single, Invasion of Privacy.
Drake’s song God’s Plan is one of his catchiest songs to date. It also has a deeper meaning than much of his other music. Those that are already a fan of Drake have probably already heard the song. But what may prove more groundbreaking in the career of the rapper is the music video of the song.
In fact Drake is so popular, that many of his ex’s have tried breaking into his phone. They’ve used cell phone spy apps to see his text messages.
The music video of God’s Plan features NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown as well as a number of people from around the Miami-Dade area who receive special visits from Drake.
Drake’s Newest Music Video
What permeates this entire video is the generosity of Drake. He goes around to different people in the Miami area and hands out cash, cars, or takes a few hard-working women on shopping sprees. The great thing is that these aren’t just random acts of kindness or an opportunity for the rapper to show off how much money that he has. These are people with legitimate needs that the rapper has heard of through the grapevine.
Antonio Brown is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL today. He makes an appearance in Drake’s new music video as himself, dancing in a shopping mall. Drake and Brown are at a Saks Fifth Avenue, the same place where Drake gave out the shopping sprees.
The Joy of Giving
What makes this music video so inspiring is not the amount that Drake was able to give away. The music video is a testament to the joy that giving brings both the giver and the receiver. The music video may wind up being one of the biggest moments in the career of the rapper. The son was already a hit, but the music video has over 230 million plays on YouTube already.
The truth is that there are a lot of people out there who may be skeptical of Drake in this music video. It may seem like he is just flaunting his money and using the video as a scheme to gain more supporters and fans. While these people will always be out there, I don’t think that this is an accurate depiction of what was going on. Amidst all the racial strife and violence in the world right now, especially in the United States, this music video is a refreshing reminder of what can happen when people support and are generous to one another.
One of the most powerful moments in the music video is at 2:03 when Drake gives a big stack of cash to a mother and son who are sitting on a curb by a park in Miami. The mother immediately starts tearing up, followed by tears from the son. Apparently the money was badly needed. When seen in the right light, this music video shows the joy that can be found when we live life open-handedly and don’t hoard our successes for our own personal gains.
