Speaking with the newspaper, Drake said he was only giving back.
After reading a story in the Miami Herald about the hours-long commutes some Fontainebleau hotel housekeepers endure, the hip-hop star made a decision to surprise one of the hard-working women with a luxurious spa day and a $10,000 shopping spree.
She got a spa massage, a lobster dinner at the upscale Miami Beach restaurant StripSteak, and almost an hour of unlimited shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue.
I thank him so much, ' Paret told the Herald on Tuesday.
She was then chauffeured to a Saks Fifth Avenue store, which had been closed to the public, where she was met by Drake and American footballer Antonio Brown, a Miami native, who encouraged her and two other women to enjoy a 45-minute shopping spree on them.
Say what you will about Drake, he's doing his part to make an impact and improve communities.
She left with a $2,000 Valentino purse, four perfumes, a $6,000 18-karat gold and diamond necklace and an $800 pair of flats to wear to church.
And the Canadian crooner also stopped by Miami High School where he donated a $25,000 check as well as school uniforms designed by his fashion label OVO.
The Diplomatic Immunity hitmaker was in Florida shooting the music video for his new single God's Plan, which has topped both Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and R&B/Hip-Hop charts. The rapper first learned about Paret from an article in the Miami Herald from 2017 where she spoke on the increasing rent prices in the city that's causing more than 80% of Miami workers to move further away from the city.
