Drake Gives Miami Citizens Nearly $1M in 'God's Plan' Music Video

The visuals features the hip-hop musician giving out a $50,000 scholarship to a college student and donating $50,000 to a youth center.

AceShowbiz - After being spotted filming the music video for "God's Plan" in various places in Miami these couple weeks, Drake finally released the said visuals on February 16. The clip was released a day after the rapper teased it on Instagram.

The nearly-six-minute clip begins with a message which reads, "The budget for this video was $996,631.90. We gave it all away. Don't tell the label." After showing a montage of desperate residents living in Miami, Drake can be seen dancing in a skyscraper.

The scene then changes to show the hip-hop musician entering a grocery store and telling all the customers to get whatever they want. The bill is on him, obviously. He then brings some families to tears as he surprises them with money. "You gotta make sure you take care of your mom too, no matter what you do, that's all we got. You know?" Drake tells a boy. "Trust me, that's my world too."

In the video, Drake also gives out a $50,000 scholarship to a University of Miami student, $50,000 to a women's shelter, $50,000 to a youth center, $25,000 to after-school programs, $20,000 to the Miami Fire Department and $10,000 to UM's school of music. Additionally, he donates new cars to some teenagers.

Shortly after the release of the music video, the "Hotline Bling" hitmaker shared on Instagram Stories a message to his fans. "I am not into challenges on IG I find them annoying," he said. "But today I am going to challenge everyone to just go out and do something for someone, anything, the smallest thing just to bring another human being some joy and please tag me in it somehow so I can see all the love being spread."

"You don't have to play the song in the background or have some hashtag this isn't about streams and all the other tactics being used," he continued. "Just go be kind in any way you can and let's all watch the world be nice to each other even if it's for 24 hours... Thank you."
