Drake x drakedrizzy_fan
‘Fan Account of the Month’ (#FAOTM) is a fan-appreciation series on UMUSIC!
At UMUSIC, we acknowledge and value the efforts of fans from around the world. The passion, dedication and love fans have for their favourite artists is something the team at UMUSIC has admired for a long time. For this reason, UMUSIC has decided to feature a fan account every month. This will give our UMUSIC community the opportunity to learn about different fandoms, their hardworking members and more about the artists!
Fan account: A social media account created by a fan dedicated to a particular piece of pop culture. This series will focus on fan accounts dedicated to artists.
Update account: A fan-run social media source for fan accounts. An update account serves as the main source of updates on a specific artist. An update account will gather all media, promotional items, and information on an artist and share the information with other fans. Think of update accounts as a constantly updated Wikipedia for fans. This series will also focus on update accounts, which are simply larger fan accounts.
This month, we’re featuring Drake fan account, @drakedrizzy_fan, run by Jasmine, who’s based in France. Jasmine has been a Drake stan since 2016 after the release of ‘Views,’ but created the Instagram account in 2020. Jasmine provides fans with news and updates about Drake’s releases, along with reposts, edits and song lyrics via Instagram.
The team at UMUSIC asked Jasmine questions pertaining to Drake, his latest projects, merch and fan culture. Below are a collection of their answers:
Why are you a Drake fan?
Honestly, there’s a lot of reasons. He has a really interesting way of expressing himself. I would advise you all to watch his interviews because he’s kind and never forgets where he’s from. He is quite close to his fans and often subscribes to fan accounts. I watched the show “Degrassi” he played in when he was younger and loved it. He’s been true to himself from a young age and greatly deserves all his fame. Even with all the fame he has, he hangs out with the same people. He’s been faithful and hasn’t forgotten his values; also he’s so beautiful, I think all the girls can understand.
How did it all begin? Can you describe your journey supporting Drake?
My mother was already listening to Drake when he started out, especially his old albums like “So Far Gone” and “Thank Me Later.” I was never really interested in that, but when his 2016 album “Views” came out with big hits like “Work” and “Hotline Bling,” I became really interested and started to listen to all his songs. I created my fan account after my ex-boyfriend left me and Drake’s music really helped me get over it, so I created a fan account to try and prove to myself that I was worthy of Drake’s follow. I didn’t expect so many people to follow me.
How would you describe Drake fans? What’s the stan culture like?
Drake fans are all united and kind to one another. I often get to speak with other fan accounts and Drake fans, and they are all super cute!! It may sound like overkill, but when we have some kind of passion between us it brings a lot of people together.
Which Drake song or album is your favourite?
It’s pretty complicated, but I think my favourite album is “Nothing Was The Same.”
What are you hoping for on his next album?
For his next album, I would like to hear a love song like “Marvins Room.” I want the songs to be lit at a party or to sing along with.
Do you have a favourite Drake music video?
Omg, this is a really tough question. I don’t know, I like them all but I’ll admit that “I’m Upset” hits different.
What makes Drake unique?
He’s humble and always remains respectful despite everything that’s happening around him.
Do you have a favourite Drake collaboration?
Hmmm, his collaboration with Rihanna was really good.
How would you describe Drake’s music in one word?
Have you ever met Drake? If not, but you could meet him, what would you say?
Unfortunately no, and COVID-19 did not help matters. f I could meet Drake, it would mean I achieved my goals and that believing in my dreams paid off. I don’t know at all what I would say other than to ask for a hug. We could talk about basketball and, especially, his music career.
The UMUSIC team would like to thank Jasmine and all of the Drake fans for the hard work they put into their accounts. Your compassion, aesthetics and humour do not go unnoticed.
