“God’s Plan” is the clear fan favorite and according to chart data, the single has gone 3X platinum in the US in just one month. The release of the philanthropic music video is what helped to push the song to just a feat. The 6 God secretly built up the hype for the visual with footage and stories of the charitable deeds he was performing throughout Miami.
Drake gave nearly a million dollars of his video budget to help the community, giving away a van to an organization, scholarship to a high school student, unexpectedly paying for groceries in everyone in a supermarket, and giving proceeds to a women’s homeless shelter.
Drake now has 159 career Hot 100s under his belt, the most among any solo act. With such a strong start to 2018, he’s likely to continue adding to this number and breaking records with his music.
