Drake, the Canadian rapper, is no stranger to making headlines, and his latest music video for “8AM In Charlotte” is no exception. However, it’s not his lyrical prowess or dance moves that have social media buzzing this time. Instead, it’s his new hairstyle, adorned with colorful clips and barrettes, that has garnered both praise and criticism from fans and followers alike.
In the midst of dancing alongside his son, Adonis, in the “8AM In Charlotte” video, Drake’s hair takes center stage. The rapper has chosen to accessorize his locks with an array of carefully coordinated clips and barrettes. While some admire his bold fashion choice, others couldn’t resist poking fun at his unique coif.
Social media platforms lit up with reactions to Drake’s unconventional hairstyle. One Twitter user affectionately stated, “Drake, you my boy,” but quickly added, “please stop doing that b**ch sh*t to your hair; you look corny lol.” The sentiment was echoed by another user who exclaimed, “Dude getting corny now, first nail polish, now those wack a clips in his hair; Drake fell off years ago.”
Some fans couldn’t help but point out the contrast between Drake’s lyrical content and his colorful hair accessories. One user raised an intriguing question, “If only Drake acted how he raps. How you talking bout killing n***as with colorful clips in your hair?” It seems that for some, the visual representation clashed with the lyrical persona.
Despite the divided opinions, there’s one thing that can’t be denied – Drake’s lyrical prowess. As one tweet humorously put it, “Drake is the only rapper whose pen is good enough to distract from the fact that he’s rapping with colorful rollers in his hair. However, it’s been known that Drake does write his own music.
