Drake Shows His Hometown Pride for Toronto in ‘Headlines’ Video
It’s no secret that Drake has love for his hometown of Toronto, Canada. In his new video for ‘Headlines,’ the rapper/singer toasts his beloved city and the people who have supported him through his success.
Superbly directed by Lamar Taylor and Hyghly Alleyne, the clip is sort of a video postcard as Drizzy performs his anthemic track at various Toronto landmarks. We get to see him at the Rogers Centre (formerly known as SkyDome) rocking the Toronto Blue Jays baseball cap with the album’s title ‘Take Care’ on the video marquee. Elsewhere, the crooner is sitting front-and-center at a table puffing on a cigar and drinking wine with his closest friends.
Other recurring motifs include Drake riding up and down in an elevator (the ups-and-downs of fame, get it?) and him performing outside of an abandon building where the initials “OVO XO” are being spray-painted on the front. We wondered who’s going to clean that up?
Indeed, Drake has a lot to celebrate about — he’s about to drop his second LP ‘Take Care’ on Oct. 24 and if everything goes as plan, he will notch another No. 1 album. It’s good to see Drake give thanks to his native city of Toronto that obviously has shown him plenty of love in return.
