Drake Releases His Proclaimed “Most Important Thing” of His Career: the Video for “God’s Plan”

posted by Oscar February 16, 2018

It’s finally here — the highly-anticipated music video for Drake’s “God’s Plan” has been unleashed. Directed by Karena Evans, the video starts with title cards stating: “The budget for this video was $996,631.90. We gave it all away. Don’t tell the label.”

After that, it’s Drizzy spreading goodwill throughout town by paying for people’s groceries, passing out cash, taking teens shopping, gave kids toys, donated to a women’s shelter, and even gave out cars! It’s clearly one of dopest videos of the year because you just can’t hate on this man with this one.

The Smashing Pumpkins are (mostly) back together! Founding band members Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha are back with Pumpkins leader (and sole continuous member) Billy Corgan for their first tour together since 2000.

The ol’ gang will be embarking on the Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour, hitting a massive 36 cities across North America starting in July of this year. The tour is not just about the reunion, but it actually doubles as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the band’s formation and it will highlight music from their first five albums:debut Gish through Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina.

Speaking about the reunion, Corgan said the following in a press release:

Some 30 years ago, as The Smashing Pumpkins, James Iha and I began a musical journey in the cramped rear bedroom of my Father’s house. And so it’s magic to me that we’re able to coalesce once more around the incredible Jimmy Chamberlin, to celebrate those songs we’ve made together.

The band made the announcement this morning with a video that actually featured original Siamese Dream album cover stars Ali Laenger and LySandra Roberts. Catch that below as well. Continue Reading
