Director MarQuis Trill shared a trailer for Toronto to Houston on Instagram writing: "People always ask 'How did you get started?' Well one way was filming @Champagnepapi [Drake] in Houston, Tx. Every concert, event, club, or appearance that happened in H-Town, I was there."
"I'm talking 2009, as Drake was rising to the top of the music world," he continued. "He credits Houston for the culture and the impact it had on him with launching his career – specifically on May 8, 2009, the show at Warehouse Live."
The documentary does not currently have a release date, but the director wrote that it will be out this summer. Drake has yet to comment on the new film. Check out the trailerhere.
"Tequila" is a lovelorn number with vocals that address being able to drink anything, from whiskey to champagne without a problem. But when the scent of tequila is in the air, images of being with the girl that got away flood the vocalist's mind.
The song begins with a piano-driven intro, and the arrangement builds in emotion to an anthemic conclusion. The number is heightened by strong hooks, iconic harmonies and vivid imagery:
"When I taste tequila/ Baby I still see ya/ Cuttin' up the floor in a sorority T-shirt/ The same one you wore when we were sky-high in Colorado/ Lips pressed against the bottle swearing on a Bible/ Baby, I'll never leave ya'/ I remember how bad I need ya when I taste tequila." Listen to the songhere.

Caddell's impassioned and emotional take on the Carey classic is one for the ages. Snow day announcements will never be the same. 'I sat down, and in 10 minutes I wrote the lyrics, and then my wife and I went on our porch, filmed it, and it was ready to go," Caddell told People of his inspired snow day announcement set to the Carey song. "Honestly, I grew up a big Mariah fan--it just gives me a flashback to that slow dance in middle school where the girl at the end told you she just wanted to be friends--but the song is slow so it would be easy to put words to."
This isn't Caddell's first foray into remixing classic tracks into snow day announcements. Earlier in the year, the clear front-runner for Principal of the Year gave Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" a similar treatment. The results: 'Snowhemian Rhapsody."
'We live in a day where all the news is cynical and tragic and discouraging, and I think people are just hungry for something positive, and something to give them some joy," Cadell explained. 'School, when I grew up, was boring, sterile and predictable, and I wanted to create a culture where people expect the unexpected. We wanted to create a place where, as teachers, we're being that adult we needed when we were kids." Check out the remixhere.
'They are challenging," Clarkson said, referring to raising children. 'Wine is necessary. They're great though. Out of the mouths of babes. They say stuff where you're like 'Damn.' They call you out. They teach me."
Clarkson has two children with her husband Brandon Blackstock and she's the stepmother to two other children. The OG American Idol winner said she learns as much from her kids as they learn from her and Blackstock.
'I know it sounds silly but kids teach you to be a better human. They're watching every moment, not only me at home but me sitting here with y'all," she said. 'I hope with our two boys and our two girls that they see their parents as successful, loving and respectful people 'cause that's what we want for them." Read morehere.

"Over the past months I was genuinely excited about launching my upcoming line and collaboration with H&M," G-Eazy shared on social media.
"Unfortunately, after seeing the disturbing image yesterday, my excitement over our global campaign quickly evaporated, and I've decided at this time our partnership needs to end. Whether an oblivious oversight or not, it's truly sad and disturbing that in 2018, something so racially and culturally insensitive could pass by the eyes of so many (stylist, photographer, creative and marketing teams) and be deemed acceptable. I can't allow for my name and brand to be associated with a company that could let this happen. I hope that this situation will serve as the wake up call that H&M and other companies need to get on track and become racially and culturally aware, as well as more diverse at every level."
Following the wave of backlash from the ad, H&M responded by apologizing, pulling the photo and removing the product from sale. See the rapper's Instagram posthere.
