The song spent 11 weeks at #1, so it’s not surprising to learn that Drake‘s video for “God’s Plan” has now officially passed one billion views on YouTube.
The video is the Toronto superstar’s third to pass one billion views. The others are his 2015 hit “Hotline Bling,” which now has more than 1.5 billion views, and “Work,” his 2016 chart-topping collabo with Rihanna, which has 1.046 billion YouTube views.
The “God’s Plan” video followed Drake in Miami, giving away $175,000 to a college student, a women’s shelter, a high school and grocery shoppers, among other recipients. All in all, the video’s entire budget of $996,631.90 was given away or donated.
“God’s Plan” was nominated for Video of the Year at the MTV VMAs, and ended up winning in that category at the BET Awards.
