Drake unleashed his “God’s Plan” video into the world on Friday (February 16) and people clearly weren’t ready for the emotions they were about to feel.
Throughout the nearly six-minute visual, we see the Toronto music giant bless one person after another with money, cars, shopping sprees and donations. Shot in Miami, the emotive video yielded heavy praise from people on Twitter.
Many admitted they cried while watching it and some revealed they had a newfound respect for Drake.
The concept of “God’s Plan,” which is taken from the Scary Hours EP, sees Drake’s faith to the test and finds him relying on a power greater than himself to get him through life.
It also inspired the 6 God to enact his own social media challenge.
“I am not into challenges on IG I find them annoying,” he wrote on Friday (February 16). “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 other tactics being used.”
He adds, “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.”
People were feeling the video and a few of them deemed Drake not only a legend but also the G.O.A.T. following its release.

Drake just made it so any music video made by any rapper is pointless until 2019. Gods Plan gave me goosebumps. That’s how you create power. Give back.
