UPDATE (Febuary 9, 2018): After the “God’s Plan” music video shoot, Drake surprised a University of Miami student with a $50,000 check. The student, Destiny James, went on Instagram to share the great news.
“Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I’ve worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition,” the caption read. “@champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!’ You don’t understand what this means to me! I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I’m living out my dreams.”

Drake filmed the music video for his newest single “God’s Plan” off of his Scary Hours EP, which dropped last month. The video was filmed at Miami Senior High School in Florida. Crowds of students can be seen surrounding Drake as he films scenes throughout the school. Social media was flooded today, February 5, with videos and pictures of Drizzy performing for the camera.
ABC 10 News confirmed the visit and reported that Drake gave a $25,000 donation to Miami Senior High School, as well as promising the students that they would get a special Drake-designed uniform.
