Drake Gods Plan

Drake dropped his much-anticipated music video for his single "God's Plan". The video was taped on location in Miami, Florida last week. Drake made headlines for giving away the entire music video budget -- $996.631.90 -- to Floridians, including a high schooler who received a $50,000 scholarship to the University of Miami.

Odelie Paret and Drake

Drake also treated Odelie Paret, 63, to a $10,000 shopping spree at Saks Fifth Avenue after learning she commutes four hours every day to her job as a Miami hotel maid to earn enough to feed her family. In return for his generosity, the luxury retailer allowed Drake and his crew to tape scenes inside the store.

Drake's generosity extended to the Lotus House Women's Shelter and stunned grocery store shoppers who were given free goods and groceries.

"God's Plan" was filmed at Miami Senior High School, the University of Miami and other South Florida locations by Director X.

    What a blessing for the recipients!

  • Candance

    Dope! Ive always loved Drake!!!! Good job young man!!!! xoxoxoxox

  • A D N

    Great deed Drake. But please tell me the lady who received $10,000 for a shopping spree because she commutes 4 hours daily to earn enough to feed her family DID NOT spend all of it at the retailer? Who benefitted more? Sure, she has high brand name items, but what about feeding her family for a year or two?

    16 Russian Nationalists were just indicted for 2016 election meddling. Come on Sandra... What is this about I only saw the caption on my computer. I'm watching Young and the Restless..

  • Roxie Moxie

    The FIRST time I've ever smiled through an entire (rap) music video. Let alone having my eyes tear up a bit. Drake isn't my favorite artist, but I do like his music; I just wish that some of the artists who probably have a good heart and intentions weren't under shady labels forcing them to do things they don't want. Otherwise, it'd be just artists making music and actually enjoy what they do.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Awesome

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • Shalonda

    What will it take for any music to get 5 stars from Sandra? Has she ever given out 5 roses before?

  • hottlanta

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Trump dummy campaign “unknowingly” interacted with these Russians..

  • SaltineCrackers

  • WutizstillHERE!

    They stagged rallies and acted like BLACK LIVES MATTER participants... and oh wow

  • Ms.Vanilla

    NO...lol, Annas son is grown. She put him up for adoption but thought she had a girl because Valentin lied to her. Her son is in town and she doesn't even know it. Carly has not had a baby since Morgan who died. Catch up and we can talk about it.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    But she does have a daughter by Jax who left the show. She is a teen.

  • cherrypie

    I stopped watching Y&R like two years ago. This was well before Adam was killed off. I watched it for a good twenty something years before it just got too boring. Is it good now? I do kinda miss watching it.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    13, and they all live in Russia.

  • Tlowe89

    Wait a minute.... So he took the woman shopping instead of buying a car.????. Not to sound ungrateful, but I'd rather have a car than a clothed that are extremely expensive

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Drake for President man!!!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I remember Jax ... Lawd I need to get caught up

  • Renee26

    Drake come on to Indianapolis....I've got a few unmet needs

  • sunni_daze

    And this is how you blow a budget. This video was awesome

  • Renee26

    I was thinking along those lines too...Clothes fro Saks was probably not what she would have benefited from the most...how about paying up the bills so she can find a better job. She's going to be the best dressed maid in the area.

  • Renee26

    LMAO

  • Renee26

    I think it was Solange

  • SweetTEE

    My first thought...damn the clothes. Take me to the used car dealership, thanks and God Bless lol

  • Liah

    Respect...#Drake

  • Renee26

    The video doesn't work for me...So I went to YouTube to watch...all I saw was him walking around in the cold and snow...is it the same video??

  • Ms.Vanilla

    You haven't missed anything. It is still boring. I just watch it because it's cleaner than most shows on TV. No blood, guts, and very little cursing. Ole Chelsea got caught stealing though. And Victor went to jail for a good while. Got in fights while there and everything... lol

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I fixed the link. It looks like Universal is snatching down unauthorized video links.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I'm watching now... Chile what Max doing on here from OLTL ... Let me stop before Sandra come through with that hammer block ? .. ? all off topic chile

  • Ms.Vanilla

    I know right!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Ok Drake thats what up... but the pessimist in me is thinking he's doing all this cause he's about to break some of his fans hearts once he announces that baby Adonis is his....

  • cherrypie

    Omg!!!! What the hell is Chelsea stealing for??? Now she's a klepto !!! I can't!! Shoot I think Victor was in jail the last time I watched it. I;m sure they trying to beat on him erryday - Victor and them weak punches lol - Let me stop! Victor got to be rolling up on 80 by now lol

  • Mischelle

    I LOVE y'all city!

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Well Chelsea stole 250,000 from Laurens boutique and hide it in the wall of her apartment. She SAID it was because she was scared she would lose everything when people found out about Nick not being Christians father but I don't believe her. Hillary uncovered Chelsea's scheming ways and stealing from old people with her accomplice Jordan back in the day. She said she has changed her ways but Ion know girl...

  • Rhyme and Reason

    It was a promotional deal he worked out with the retailer, and shot scenes inside the store!

    Hopefully, this woman receives other financial help or this good deed encourages others to give (grocery store gift cards, a car if she drives, or pay off some bills, etc.)!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Good Job, Drake!

    People would be surprised how stingy many celebrities are!

    I hope this inspires others from wealthy celebs to everyday people!

  • Tlowe89

    I hope he paid cash and gave her the receipts. If so I'd take all that ish back for the cash and be at Carmax asap.

  • Simone

    Drake is the MAN. #GodBlessHim

  • C Mack

    So when Ciara and Russell go to visit sick kids they’re looking for props but Drake gets applause all around. Love how ppl pick and choose when to criticize lol.

    I like this and I commend Drake.

  • C Mack

    Probably Cardi???

  • Gloria

    Love Drake <3

  • kkkjinx

    I agree 1000%. I already cried over it and I'm over it now. As long as drake can accept my child I guess I can accept his. Yall just need to get ready when he makes the announcement that were getting married lol.

  • cherrypie

    Girl, thanks for the update. I think I'll jump back on and try to catch up. I have so many questions but im not going bombard you with them lol .

  • Renee26

    Swear

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Take notes Hip Hop " Billionaires", this is how you make an impact in peoples lives.

    No FAKE press releases about bailing fathers out of jail, for fathers day.

    On another note 4 ROSES!!!!! Wow Drake has made history lol lol.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I don’t know I watch it if U turn to it. But yeah he has a twin.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I saw it today .... Chile I love me some Carly ... I will start back watching from now... shouldn't be too hard to catch up

  • Oya Shango

    This brought tears to my eyes. God bless him!

  • Chele

    Wow @ those digits for the budget. Numbers truly don’t lie.?

  • Kayke

    I hear you.....but if she's struggling to eat how will she pay insurance and gas. Gifting a person in this situation a car is gifting potential debt. Sadly designer threads holds value more than a vehicle and often appreciates, depending on the item. She can return the clothes and get her exact funds back....driving the car off the dealership's lot is automatic depreciation of 10%

  • Sleepy One

    I cried, may God continue to bless Drake to be a blessing to others.

  • PynkCloudz

    God bless Drake. It must feel so good to give in such abundance. I'm next, I can't wait to give to many in abundance.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    That was dope! Decent song but the video and bringing happiness to others had to feel good to him and the production team!

  • Diva4lyfe

    I want to know what was the situation with the guy and his mom that made Drake get so emotional and filming that scene....
