Drake takes it back to Toronto for “Headlines”

Drake performs “Headlines” in a music video directed by Lamar Taylor and Hyghly Alleyne. You can find the song on his latest studio album, Take Care.

From Wikipedia: “It officially premiered on October 2, 2011 on Vimeo. It doesn’t feature anyone from Young Money, but has appearances by T-Minus, Noah “40” Shebib, The Weeknd, Boi-1da and Kromatik. It was shot in Canada, mainly in Toronto, Drake’s home town. No narrative is followed, yet Drake is depicted rapping in different environments : in the centre field of Toronto’s Rogers Centre (as the stadium’s scoreboard is lit up with the title of his November 15 album, Take Care); in front of a rundown building with the letters “OVOXO” (the name of Drake’s crew: “October’s Very Own” or “OVO” standing for Drake and “XO” standing for The Weeknd) sprayed in graffiti by ‘Mer’ on the wall; in the glass elevator of the C.N. Tower, going up, allowing few symbolic interpretations in relation to Drake’s ascension to fame, the main topic of the song; at the head of a dining table, puffing on a cigar, Drake being dressed with an unprecedented retro as well as geeky style, with a knitted jumper and vintage half-tainted glasses; and most notably in front of Toronto’s historic Guild Park, surrounded by his crew. The video shows obvious traces of sponsorship by Nike sportswear.”
