Behind the Scenes: Drake Video Lead Girl

At first I declined to post these pics of Drake’s lead girl, Sophia Marie, in his upcoming video. But I often forget that a variety of readers come to my blog and they are not all like me — sick and tired of seeing the same boring type of chick posted up in every video. So these pics are for the few of you who appreciate these LSLH video chicks.

Loyal reader Zuley has more info on her:

Hey Sandra,

My boy was on set this past weekend at Drake’s Best I Ever Had video and my homegirl Sophia Marie from Brooklyn was one of the leads in that video can you please post her? She’s the nicest most sweetest girl you will ever come across and I’m so happy her modeling career is finally taking off. She’s not like these other video chicks she actually is enrolled in Med school studying to be a doctor.

MORE pics after the break…

    she’s cute, I don’t trip over videos like that….so I don’t care about leads and shyt…..the only time I had an issue is when Sandra said that they tried to replace Flo-Rida’s leading BSSC = brown skin sexy chocolate…(LOL)…with a LSLH….other than that foolishness I don’t care about videos and none of the —- in it.

    Somebody let Zuley know her girl is still a video model med school or not. Plenty of other video models (is this really considered modeling now?) are in somebodys school as well. Since the video hasn’t been released I don’t know what this med school by day video chick by night will be wearing or doing. So that’s all I am going to say.

    Shoutout to Ye for directing the video!

    iscream says:

    So is this Zuley’s friend or not?

    I’m so confused with this LSLH mess. Are non black women considered LSLH? I thought that only applied to black people since we are the race that comes in Dark, Brown, light brown, dark brown, light skin, high yella, octoron, quadron, ect.

    Now that you’re up Sandra can we get some news.

    So sick of the music industry and the look in every video. I dont care how sweet she is. It’s time for something new, fresh and empowering. Especially considering the theme of Drake’s new song.

    Okay from LMAO @ these comments I see this is her friend.

    & Krysi I agree I don’t watch videos either. I never even understood how model and video girls go hand in hand. & even more confused how a future doctor, video girl & model go hand in hand.

    Isn’t that like an oxymoron?

    Daisy did you see Gotti’s way?

    It’ll never change, but its their loss anyway. Check dis out doe, Drake gotta BSSC girlfriend so he doesn’t discriminate….its just the people who direct the videos….I guess “Ye” is responsible for this Daisy…LOL!

    The only part of Runs House that I saw was when the boys were surfing. Run should stay away from the beach. I was so nervous he would get harpooned (j/k).

    I hate BET & I feel so out the loop cause I swear I keep hearing how great Drake is. Well, I’ve heard one song (with Wayne) & I’m not impressed. I read a quote of Mary calling him Hip Hop savior. (Side eye). Really.

    ~~~~~~~~
    I didn’t see all of it but enough to know that Vanessa and Angela need to think outside the box. How was their backyard going to accomodate 200-250 ppl. How were they going to cover the pool with clear glass and make it a dance floor at a cost of almost $10,000 not to mention I was worried about it breaking.

    Ice runs house was an hour so I missed Gotti heard it wasn’t that good though

    I have school tonight so I have to set my DVR for Jada’s show I hope ppl tune n so it can stay on the air if its good

    Krysi Yeah I read Ye directed this video amber was on set n all per reports she looks skinny these days as well

    Of course Amber looks skinny she has access to more drugs.

    Gotti’s way was aight. Very relatable as far as kids in the work place… working your nerves. & Deb having to find something to do while the kids were gone the weekend. Sometimes we want it but when it happens… you are missing them.

    I don’t know nah Isc…….I think he’s pretty hot (raps wise)…..People say he rap like Wayne, but he doesn’t…to me……….he’s got his own swag and he actually puts effort into his rhymes…(lyrical content is on point and makes sense)….If you’re into that type of thing that is you would be impressed. He straight…I would still have to hear a SECOND hot single before I even think about supporting him.

  25. 25
    iscream says:

    @ Krysi *blank stare*

    He’s a rapper? I thought he was R&B. See what I’m talking about. Wait he raps on that song? Really. Yall gon have to excuse me for my igness. I really am not a big fan of todays music like that. Maybe I’ll try and watch some videos this wkend so I can get up on the new stuff…. maybe.

    The girl is pretty don’t care if she’s light brown mexican or german. Doesn’t affect me I don’t watch videos and very rarely do I listen to this music. Some mornings I can’t wait to push my 15 year old out the car so I can change the station. :)

    I am so pissed I didn’t realize there was a new season of Runs House starting. I’ll be adding that to the DVR for sure. I don’t think I’m really interested in Jadas show. I’ll wait and see what you all have to say about it tomorrow. To many Dr. shows-she is a Dr. in it right?

    Bird says:

    I’m not so sure reverse discrimination is the answer to the LSLH video girl phenom. Anyway, I think this young lady is very impressive not because of her looks but because she is a med school student. Later for modeling. Unless Drake is a 7 footer it looks like she is too short to be a real model anyway. I hope she is not aspiring to do booty shots in raunchy men’s mags. Get that degree and keep it moving. Doctors make more money anyway.

    Which is why I have no idea, why she is wasting her time….Besides she has more important things to focus on….how the hell does someone manage being a video gurl (in demand that is) and Med school??? Im sure that takes a lot outta her, I hope its due to her determination and not her fendi bag addiction.

    Damn I didn’t know it was on. No problem. You know they’ll show it a thousand more times before next week.

    Totally off topic. Some of yall know The Bird got laid off a few months back. In the current economy I’ve given up on the executive admin field as it is far to competitive. So I am going for my chauffeur’s license because baby daddy was able to hook me up with a gig with his former employer. So why when I called New Jersey Motor Vehicles the dumb broad on the phone not only didn’t know how to spell my very common first name but also asked me how to spell University and asked me if Charlotte started with an SH or a CH? WTF???

    drake both raps & sings. that’s actually him singing the ‘best i ever had’ hook. y’all might be tired of hearing that he’s ‘dope.’ but his mixtape is FREE for download so it’s worth a listen. i’ve been bumping it like it’s an album that i really paid for since march.
    i don’t care about LSLH; black is black to me. but i will say that i love the “halle berry” video simply because it highlights the beauty and diversity of black women. no one is ethnically ambiguous (the chicks come in all shades of brown) and the main chicks have bodies (no wafer thin girls or implants welcomed at that shoot). the song is definitely fruit-snack rap…but the video makes me like/appreciate the song ♥

    Bird says:

    Daisy,

    I’m good. I have the job, but the manager realized at the last minute that since I have only lived in NC for 6 years that I have to get my driving and criminal record from Jerz too because the police department, who issues the license, needs my records to go back 10 years. But chick was hella dumb.

    Sandra,

    If you don’t feel like looking for stories how about just copying and pasting the Kelis story from TMZ. I’d love to rip her supreme gold digger antics to shreads. I had no idea she was depending on Nas for her survival. To hear her tell it she qualifies for Welfare and food stamps without him.

    mizzdallas says:

    To me Drake and Wayne are exactly alike! Mary J had the nerve to call Drake the “Saviour of Hip-Hop” ur u serious(In my Kyle voice from College Hill) People love to dyck ride somebody coatail, I listen to Drakes mixtape, and I will say he has talent but he is just like every other rapper, he is alittle bit of Kanye and alittle bit of Wayne. And I love me some Kanye! But lets be serious here, he hasnt done anything that puts him above the rest,he is simply an over-hype rapper/singer and all of that will slowly die down along with his career. smdh!

  54. 54
    Krysi J says:

    Maybe people are excited about someone who can actually SING and RAP worth a damn…..shyt he prolly sings better than Rhianna’s azz and maybe he raps better than JAy Z the hip hop god let the Stans tell it..OR..Maybe Drake is just good for business, CD sales, and quality which is rare in the industry.

    iscream says:

    As far as LSLH goes..

    I have a friend whose daughter is DS and she has a very hard time with her daughter because of her skin color. She thinks everything light is pretty. She asks her mother about getting her skin lightened. Its sad because she is only 10 or 11.

    So Sandra yes. I agree with you to a point. There needs to be a change in the industry.
    Oh & her mother is also DS.

    @Krysi Drake and Princess RihRih are about neck n neck when it comes to singing he uses autotunes so I dont know how well he can sing w/o it..lol I am not the biggest Jay fan but Drake has a LONG way to go before he even thinks about being on that level.

    @Mizz your girls Wendys TV shows starts here next mth saw the commerical last night.

    wiggy2272003 says:

    Kelis is asking the judge to order Nas to pay spousal support, child support, all pregnancy-related expenses, and one-half of all medical expenses after the child is born. She also wants $3,500 for the baby nurse after the child’s birth, and $20,000 for strollers, cribs and other baby supplies

    Kelis says, “My survival is based on [Nas'] will at this time. If he does not want to pay for an expense, it does not get paid.” The couple was married in 2003. The baby is due this month.
    Kelis says she’s entitled to maintain the lifestyle to which she became accustomed during their marriage — they have five homes, fly first class, go to fancy restaurants, and on and on. Most interesting — “There were many expensive pieces [of jewelry] such as a princess-cut diamond tennis bracelet that was recently appraised for $190,000. My engagement ring is an approximately nine-carat cushion-cut diamond solitaire. I have numerous watches…such as Cartier, Rolex, Frank Muller and Chopard.”

    Her lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, says in a separate declaration she’s asked Nas to ante up some $$$ for Kelis and the unborn baby but he hasn’t responded.
    ——————————————————-
    How about sell the jewlery buy some real estate, you will get child support( TO RAISE THEY BABY NOT SUPPORT THE LIFESTYLE YOU HAVE “BECOME ACUSTOMED TO) AND GET BACK TO WORK? Dam you married a man with money (you didn’t hold it down behind during that or help him make it) and now you’re divorcing him. Sorry bout the novel but I never cared for her and now I really don’t.
    Even if I was flat busted if I was leaving a man I wouldn’t let him know I needed him for ****tt.

Shaunie showed shaq, divorce me if you want, and not only will she clean him out, but she will be well in the process of doing so.

    wiggy2272003 says:

    Daisy agreed about Shaunie but I’m haveta check you on Kimora. Russell was I admit somebody when she married him but he wasn’t balling like he is now. They started dating in 92. Best believe she was behind Phat Farm. She was already Karl Lagerfield top model and knew the fashion industry. He had money in 92 granted but that empire was vastly expanded during thier marraige in large part due to the fashion aspect of phat farm which he admits she is responsible for

  66. 66
    Daisy says:

    @Wiggy slow down BOO..lol I am team Kimmora thats my POINT she came up (it was his money that funded the co even it was her ideas that made it pop) she worked the game is my whole point and I aint mad at her. I said she made a BRAND of herself thus giving her PROPS!
