starr:] said...

Only one word: FIYAA!! Im usually not into slow/pop/spiritual/folk music. If thats even a genre...? But it was hot, I even luved Justin's part, & I kinda dislike him lol.
Aubrey's part was FIYAA!! He killed it. "Imagine if it happened there." L
yrics that will have you in the corner thinking!

Anonymous said...

Anonymous said...

Shayla said...

Awe that was good, you represent for Canada Drizzy! I don't know about comparing inspirational songs (nothing is like MJ's 'We are the World'), but it was good...wondering where Melonie Fiona was, isn't she Canadian? Well, whatever, I liked it and I'm glad Drake did his thing...rapper/singer/actor...triple threat

Nteague1 said...

Look at starr:] peruvial

Sabinachka™ said...

starr:] said...

Umm...Is that even a word, Teague?! I have a peruvian hat, I luv it! Its pink & red. Goes good w/ shorts & Vans.
Yeah, I thought she was too, Shayla. Atleast thats what they said on 106 & Park lol.

Nteague1 said...

starr:] said...

Okay, lol.
My godfather is Haitian, so I rep that along w/ Panama. :]

simran said...

drakess part was amazinggg and sooo sexiii

Nteague1 said...

Oh!! Stellar starr:]

MONET said...

This is so true people always forget about devastation in other countries when the media focuses their attention on other world issues...Don't let the media decide what is important to you...Please go to www.soles4souls.org...Here you can donate gently used or new shoes and they will be shipped to the country of your choice...I started a shoe drive in my community and a lot of people donated because they didn't necessarily have the money to contribute, but they did have a pair of gently used shoes to show they care...This is an ongoing initiative...We can all show Haiti we care with something most of take for granted, a pair of shoes.

Maiyya said...

that was awesome
everyone sang great and it was absolutely beautiful

reggydelva said...

Awsome im haitian and i think its better than the We are the world remix, Wavin flag is the best thanx for all the support

Nteague1 said...

Drake..what are you doing for SB?

starr:] said...

Yes, yes I tiz. Oh, one of my friends game me the nickname "Starr Status". Doesn't it just fit me? ;]
SB...Soulja Boy? Loll...

Nteague1 said...

I SO heard you while listening to Trey's cd the other night in my homeboy car :P

Nteague1 said...

Yes, because YOU missy are a star. ;]. Ok so I wore my Punkrose shoes today starr:]

Nteague1 said...

MONET, is it like Toms? Everytime I see those shoes, I think..how many diff. variations of styles can you come up with with that main version? Well, I DID see they have lace up styles now. Will that brand last?

starr:] said...

Oh yes! Swim in my pool of awesomeness. ;]
Good! What did you wear it w/? Please dont say t-shirt & skinnies. Thats the typical chick these days.

Anonymous said...

you did ya thang on this track cuzo...

Nteague1 said...

Girl yess. Looking 22. I wore black, Abbey Dawn jeans and a Fruit of the Loom gray tee w/ a dark blue Arizona denim jacket. And a ponytail. I felt like Ciara:/

x3itsbriaaBIXTCH said...

Props for an uplifting , encouraging song . All did a wonderful job , Drake added a great touch .

I love it when he says "If you weren't involved before, it's never too late to start" .

As Always , Much Love to the OVO Team .

Nteague1 said...

Gondnight boo, but I doubt I'm going to bed..

Stefon said...

hey drake you have really taken rap to another level, that was a hard ass verse with deep meaning. just keep doing you till its "over" you are proof that anything is possible no matter what you background is

uhn said...

whose the artist that sings after drizzys verse, the first one to sing after it, the girl?

Nteague1 said...

So Drake, have you ventured to the rest of Canada, like up above Canada? I had a dream it was some mystical place like The Neverending Story, but I wasn't flying on a dog looking thing, it was something else. Anyway, I was flying over bodies of glittery water, ice castles..you know

Nteague1 said...

Wait, not above Canada, not Alaska, but more like above Toronto, not the the left, either

Nteague1 said...

MsSencillez said...

This was a great and powerful song. Such great talent! Let's not forget Haiti or the other countries that struggle day in and day out. It shouldn't take a tragedy to help these nations :). Much Love!

starr:] said...

LOL!! Was your ponytail like, extra long? ;] I cant find a denim jacket worth wearing these days. Where'd you get yours from?
Great description, Teague. When I think of a place above Toronto but to the left(;]), I imagine eskimoes. -shrug-
My bro did my henna!

noelle said...

It was just full. I got my jacket from JC Penney in like ..7th grade. I imagine..just land and forests and shit. Up north, I imagine I guess what I dreamed about!!





OK BOO, i am changing my background from this: http://www.kanyewest.us/gallery/displayimage.php?album=794&pos=5

to thid:http://allthings-fresh.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/gqs5.jpg

noelle said...

Lemme stop stealin' otha people shit liek Beyonce. And passing it off as mine haha

http://www.ijigg.com/songs/V2AC4C7FPA0

starr:] said...

Cuuttee! LOL, I was not expecting that...I'll check Gap, even though I havnt been in that store in yrs.
I have a mini laptop, & its kind of different, so I have no clue how to change the background. :/

noelle said...

Yeah, I have seen a few Asians and blond with one, lol. The Sanyo Incognito...which is new, I should've just waited for that:/, looks like a laptop!

noelle said...

See starr:]

noelle said...

AWWW, we spose to be talkin' 'bout Haiti.

starr:] said...

Ohmigosh, LOL!! Alot of Mexican kids at my school wear them...Im just like where'd you get that from? -shrug-
Oh yeah, I saw that when I went in the Sprint store. I hate Sprint.
I know right!! Okay, so, Im dedicating this rose to my peoplez in Haiti.
-<-<-3
:D

starr:] said...

When I listen to Aub goin hard on a song (perfect exmp: Over), I get in that "haha, Im better than you, deal w/ it" mood. I dont know why, I just do...Do you experience that sometimes? If not, I guess Im just a complex person, lol.

Nteague1 said...

Oh, of course!! That's why I don't own the full 17 track SFG. I feel I'm not hoe enough *shrug and sigh at the same time*. But then I pop in Kanye and he's all, "follow your dreams!!" So I gotta stay in the books for Jay;)

Nteague1 said...

I mean Shawn, the difference is like LCD & HD haha.

starr:] said...

LOL, anyone can be, Teague. YOU CAN DO THIS. Yeah, Kanye can go hard, but I still cant bring myself to be a fan. :/
Okay, as long as Im not by myself. :D What do you think about TP?

Nteague1 said...

No, I'm not dumb enough, but coincidently, I feel Stupid In Love by Ri hanna. Na, your not reciting a Beyonce song girl! Me, Myself & I for the slow ones. Who is TP starr:]? What I love Kanye, sorry, I am watching 8 Simple Rules and just all over the place

Ms. TV Anchor said...

AND on Twitter

http://twitter.com/mstvanka

starr:] said...

Lol, its okaayy. Yeah, I dont know what it is, I just cant bring myself to do it. -shrug-
Travis Porter. Only the best trio in the world. Okay, maybe in the U.S. But their still pretty good, its great cuz I can relate to them in a very odd way. :|

Ms. TV Anchor said...

karlizs said...

i luv this song i think its beautiful and realistic..
every single artist killed it..

drake specially u.. u killed it, u really came through

CANADA!!!!

raana said...

that song goes hard,and i hope the people that are listening go even harder by donating money for Haiti. oh and lets not forget that drake is very amazing at what he does :) i'm starting to like Canadians more and more.

Nteague1 said...

Ok, I never heard them:/. I like hip hop and r&b. Are they either?

Janine said...

I believe Drake also participated in the "We Are the World" remake...his role was just not as prominent as his role in this song.

Anonymous said...

i loooove drakes voice...This is the shit

Nteague1 said...

Janine, I believe he was on the hip hop remix including DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, etc.

starr:] said...

Of course! Thats the crazy thing, Teague, they kinda mix in alittle of the pop thing. Everyone knows them for All The Way Turnt Up w/ Roscoe Dash. "WE BE ALLLL THE WAAYYY TUUURRNNTT UPPP!!" :]
I like the new DJ Khaled song, w/ Luda & T-Pain.

Nteague1 said...

I have never heard either song. I am so stuck on what I already have that it is ridiculous..

starr:] said...

Wow...You've got to get out of that rock you've been hiding under. ;]
My drama teacher is racist. He didnt specifically make a racial slur, but all the black kids in the class are backstage for the spring musical. :| I've been taking acting classes for 2yrs, so I may not be the best, but I can speak loud & clear. Whatever.

Ernie said...

Beautiful song, but what I can't understand is why are so many comparing the two songs. You're taking away from the reason that these were created, stop worrying about which is better, just listen enjoy, take in the songs and donate. Do you think that the people in Haiti care about who did a better job, they just hope that the true purpose of the songs brings more awareness to their(our) crisis.

Nteague1 said...

I knooow, I put Ye back on top of my stackLOL, he got moved down under some Lifetimes, Collision Course & Drake!! I was like, wtf..actually, Drake might be on top of him since his album 'bout ta drop. BUT DO YOU HAVE THAT LOOK, starr:]. Do you possess star quality? Why don't you ask your teach. why you are in the back. Say Aah

starr:] said...

Im gonna be the album from iTunes, I use my iPod for everything, so Drakey will DEF be at the top!
I got the main part for this play at NRACT, a community theatre. The director was actually pretty well known through out NC, so it was kind of an honor. So yes, I would say I have some star quality, for other reasons too. But its a school play, so Im not sweatin it.
I model too. :D & yes, it was a legit fashion show, not a mall show.

Nteague1 said...

Ok guuuurl. Get that resume and look book ready..summer is right around the corner, and no one but Drake I suppose knows what you look like since he is always on your couch!!

B. Russell said...

Drake, if you enjoy reading on tour, check out my book The Criminal Within at http://lulu.com/criminalwithin

starr:] said...

Lol! I will make sure I do that. I'll audition for anything, I just want to get the ball rolling. I've made a pact w/ myself that I will not become a Disney star, lol.

Nteague1 said...

That is right, slavery is over;)

That's Tiphahnea said...

You sung and then you rapped and sung some more!!!! Drake you are a TRUE TALENT! Singing,rapping,acting & etc... you just do it all!!! Multi-talented!!!!! You just keep outshining them all!!!!

noelle said...

Drake you look damn edible on your interview. Liek the English muffins my mom bought

noelle said...

Because I put butter on it, ahha..

starr:] said...

Wow...Well if I had to compare you to food...You'd be sushi. Know why? Cuz I luv it. <3
That was a compliment, Aub. Say thank you. I know your mother & grammy taught you well. Haha, pun intended. ;]

starr:] said...

Figuratively, and literally, Teague. :]
Go ham. I've been saying that all day, & everyone gets confused.

starr:] said...

brings tears to my eyes :)
you and justin nozuka on the same track is historyyy

Anonymous said...

Can't compare to MJ's "We Are The World, but comes awfully close. Drake is outstanding, his singing was amazing & his verse was beautiful, it made me cry. There's something about Drake that you can't just look away when he raps or ignore, you have to pay attention. I've been dying for someone like him to come to the game & sweep us off our feet. -Sincere Fan <3
