New Video: Drake – ‘Headlines’

Fans of Canadian-born emcee Drake can now feast their eyes on his latest serving – the visual for the hit single ‘Headlines’.  The first lifted from his forthcoming sophomore album ‘Take Care’ (October 24), the song has already found itself in Billboard’s Top 30.  But, will the Lamar Taylor-directed visual aid boost Drizzy from its comfortable (two weeks in a row) #23 spot on the charts?

Check out ‘Headlines’ and give us your verdict:

Same ole’ Drake with choir-directing hand movements and pointing. The only excitement in the video were the near-seizure inducing flashes, but otherwise it was a yawn-fest.

Aside from that, and seemingly the direction many-a-video are headed these days, this video was pretty much a 4 minute commercial. Can’t knock the hustle, I guess. But if creativity in rap videos was already on a respirator pre-Recession, we all know it’s resting with the Lord above now.

    Pick any song off of “So Far Gone”, and I guarantee you it’ll slay what he releases from here on out. Drake fell all the way off.

    Fortunately, we know Drake now.

    We know we can listen to his tunes first and imagine our very own videos because his are NEVAH! the business.

    Look at him so proud of his emo Half-breed-Dwayne-Wayne self.

    The song is great, but emo-hop is not my favourite. I need me some swag sorry. *Going back to youtube to listen to J.Cole “Can’t get enough”. I neeeeed that.*

    “Same ole’ Drake with choir-directing hand movements and pointing.” LMFAO I cant

  13. Get Real October 2, 2011

    LMAO, why were you guys expecting anything different. We already know exactly what were getting into with most every artist. :p it’s funny to even express your displeasure, like when you watch an awards show thinking this year it’ll be good, yea right. hahahaha.
