The Saturdays covering Drake, TLC, and Destiny’s Child
Girl anthems! Some of them.

But seriously you guys, #starbucksdrakehands was too good and it was the best thing that I saw on the internet this week. Can somebody find the identity of this guy? I think we could be friends.
Before he was Drake, he was Jimmy Brooks. I’ve said it from the beginning – Jimmy was always one of my favorite characters in Degrassi and while he’s talented as a musician (obviously,) he was also extremely talented at acting. Over the years and eight seasons, his character went through life-changing moments – one that left him in a wheel chair from a school shooting – and seeing his story unravel as he learned to cope with his situation was inspiring for young adults who watched the show. Drake got his start from the series and now TeenNick is deciding to host a special of his classic episodes this Friday, October 11th starting at 10PM EST.
How one bro’s seductive video selfie turns into an outrageous internet movement. I watched every video in this BuzzFeed post this morning and had tears in my eyes. Can you imagine what you would have done if you had gotten the original message? …probably taken it viral like the girl’s friend did.

Happy Drake day, y’all! We’re celebrating by listening to his entire album Nothing Was the Same. My favorite song still might be “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” but that might be because it’s not actually a rap song and Drake just sounds good in it.
Drake is having a moment on Yow Yow! this month, but not-so-secretly we’ve been fans of his since the Degrassi days. He’s probably the only rapper in the industry right now who I never get tired of. I’m very much looking forward to his album dropping on Tuesday and can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of it.
Also Majid Jordan, where did you come from? Swoon. We love you. Keep doing you.
Last night Drake performed his new single “Too Much” for the first time on Jimmy Fallon. I haven’t been keeping up much on Drake news so this was the first time that I was hearing about this collaboration, but I absolutely love Sampha and the two of them together. I think one of the main reasons why I’m a fan of Drake’s at all probably stemmed from his time on Degrassi. Anyone who says that one of their favorite characters wasn’t Jimmy is lying to ya!

So I ran into a little hiccup earlier today that has kept me from posting on Yow Yow.
It was a slow news day anyways, but not for new viral videos!
I’ve heard multiple covers of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” but nothing compares to this performance by 15-year old Park Ji Min. This rendition performed on the Korean singing competition K-Pop Star (like our American Idol, The Voice, X-Factor) is what everyone is talking about today!
Picture this. You’re out with your friends on a weeknight at some bar when it just happens to be karaoke night! Drake and Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?” Yes, please! That’s my jam right there. You get on stage and oh! Drake joins you to rap his verse!
Bound to be the best night ever, right?
Two of my favorite movie characters Summer and Tom reunite to sing this New Year’s duet originally sung by Nancy Wilson. Swoon.
It’s a silly thing to look forward to, but I am always anticipating the riders of bands and artists. You wouldn’t believe some of the crazy requests that we’ve gotten. The best one so far? Weed brownies.
Someone got ahold of Drake’s rider today, though and it is currently circulating the interwebz. Dang Jimmy, why you gotta be so high maintenance?
We’ll never forget where you started.
