Canadian musician Drake spent a near $1 million budget for his God’s Plan music video to individuals and organisations across Miami.

‘The budget for this video was 996,631.90 dollars. We gave it all away. Don’t tell the label,’ it reads before footage of the singer visiting organisations across the US state.
