Drake takes us on a journey through his hometown of Toronto in the video for his first single, “Headlines.” Directed by Lamar Taylor and Highly Alleyne, of The Weeknd’s XO team, Drizzy Drake and his camp tour their city, ranging from The Guild to the Rogers Center, before making a toast in a Huxtable inspired sweater.
Although “Headlines” holds the No. 2 slot on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Rap Songs charts, Drake told Billboard.com’s The Juice that “Headlines” is not the best song on his sophomore album,”Take Care” (Oct 24), but “it’s really just the song for this moment.”
“I always try to put forth a song with a message. A lot of people pick their single by what’s the strongest song. I don’t really do that. I like to make sure that the content is very relevant to right now,” Drake told The Juice of “Headlines.” “I want people to party to it but at the same time the fans, the people that care about my career, the people that follow me, will hear a message in it.”
