Drake Bring Together The Degrassi Cast For “I’m Upset” Video

Rapper Drake dropped the music video for “I’m Upset” which displays the reunion of the Degrassi: The Next Generation cast. In the video they all meet up at their high school and party it up. Drake who played Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian TV Show from 2001 to 2009, reunites with 19 his cast members.

Here the list of cast in order of appearance in the video:

Shane Kippel, who played his onscreen best friend Gavin “Spinner” Mason

Lauren Collins played Paige Michalchuk, the queen bee at Degrassi. Before there was a Regina George, there was Paige Michalchuk.

Adamo Ruggiero and Stacey Farber played Marco Del Rossi and Ellie Nash, respectively, joining the cast in season two. Marco spends most of the series struggling to accept his sexuality and getting others around him to do the same, while Ellie deals with a home life in constant turmoil. The two strike up a friendship with Paige to form the best trio since Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

Jake Epstein played musician Craig Manning; he is the boy every girl in school wants, who has to battle some serious inner demons.

Christina Schmidt and Andrea Lewis played Terri MacGregor and Hazel Aden, respectively. Terri is incredibly insecure about her self-image and eventually gets in an abusive relationship. She leaves after the third season, following an assault by her ex-boyfriend. Hazel is the best friend of Paige, who struggles with hiding her Muslim faith from her friends because of facing harassment after 9/11. She eventually decides to live in her truth, as well as dating one Jimmy Brooks later on in the series.

Melissa McIntyre played Ashley Kerwin, another past love of Jimmy Brooks and the “perfect girl” who attracts all the guys. She is hated by quite a few of the Degrassi girls, but Ashley is too busy dealing with her whole drama to bother with all that. We will never forget when Jimmy Brooks has the audacity to call her a slut. She also has a tumultuous relationship with Craig that inspires the classic hit “Mr. Nice Guy.”

Linlyn Lue and Stefan Brogren played Laura Kwan and Archibald “Snake/Archie” Rupert Simpson, respectively. They are both teachers at Degrassi, Kwan for English and Archie for Media Immersions. Kwan is known for being strict AF, whereas Archie is a lot looser. Archie goes on to become the principal and has to tighten the reins a little more. Brogren actually portrayed Archie in the original Degrassi in the ’80s, thus making Archie an official alumnus of Degrassi Junior High and High School.

Marc Donato and Dalmar Abuzeid portrayed Derek Haig and Daniel “Danny” Van Zandt, respectively. They are basically everyone’s annoying little brothers.

A.J. Saudin played Connor DeLaurier, Archie’s godson who struggles with social situations as a result of his having Asperger’s syndrome. He ends up joining the football team and becoming valedictorian of the class of 2014.

Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes played Jay and Silent Bob Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. The two come in the final three episodes of season four as exaggerated versions of themselves who are filming a fictional film at Degrassi.two come in the final three episodes of season four as exaggerated versions of themselves who are filming a fictional film at Degrassi.

Miriam McDonald and Cassie Steele played the unforgettable Emma Nelson and Manny Santos, respectively. They are an unstoppable duo who battle sexism, eating disorders, unplanned pregnancies, and terrible decisions in boyfriends together. They are the definition of BFFL.

Nina Dobrev and Sarah Barrable-Tishauer coming in during season six, Dobrev portrayed Mia Jones, a teenage mother who just wants to model. She eventually leaves to pursue a career in Paris and somehow gets waylaid by some vampire brothers in Virginia, USA. Barrable-Tishauer played Liberty Van Zandt, who never lets anything get in her way, even teenage pregnancy and losing her partner. She is and will always be a genius baddie.

Ephraim Ellis, who played Rick Murray the infamous schoolmate who shoots Jimmy and paralyzes him during season four.

Jake Goldsbie portrayed Toby Isaacs, stepbrother of Ashley Kerwin. He is also best friends with J.T. Yorke.

Paula Brancati portrayed Jane Vaughn, a transfer from Degrassi’s rival school Lakehurst Secondary School and aunt to Mia’s daughter, Isabella.

Rihanna’s NEW ALBUM ‘ANTI’

rihanna-work-preview

1. “Consideration” (ft. SZA)

A confident drum kit starts off Rihanna’s return: “I got to do things my own way darlin’ / Will you ever let me / Will you ever respect me?” Dang. Tell us how you really feel, Rih! SZA joins in with a mesmerizing hook, proving that Rihanna has bars and good taste. This song is a solid banger, starting the album out strong a sending a clear message: this one is all mine.

2. “James Joint”

On a dreamier note, “James Joint” comes in to remind us of Rihanna’s one true love, self-explanatory title and all. It’s a nice interlude and an in-your-face reminder that Rih doesn’t care what you think.

3. “Kiss it Better”

Here, Rihanna brings in a guitar riff on a romantic pop anthem. “Kiss It Better” does what Rihanna does best: demand loving just the way she wants it. “Here to take me back / who cares when it feels like…” she sings, lamenting the “are we together or not” drama so many of us experience on the regular. This song could easily blast out of a boombox, raised over a heartthrob’s head in the climactic scene of a teen drama. Alternatively, it will blast out of our laptops for the next month.

4. “Work” (ft. Drake)

In the most dancehall-inspired track on the album, Drake joins Rihanna to put in “Work.” It’s upbeat, forcing you to dance whether you’re in your seat or on your feet, but features some pretty trying lyrics. Who hasn’t needed to put in work to make their relationship last?

5. “Desperado”

This one is rhythmic, dark, and dramatic. We’re here for Rihanna’s bad gal cowboy phase.

6. “Woo”

The falsetto “woo” chorus on this song is its namesake, but the beat and Rihanna’s haunting lyrics set it off: “I bet she could never make you cry / cause the scars on your heart are still mine.” Buckle up, kids. We’ve got a breakup anthem.

7. “Needed Me”

Building off the previous track, this one follows strong, insisting “you needed me” over a strong bass as she insists, “didn’t I tell you I was a savage?” It’s got Weeknd vibes with a signature Rihanna attitude.

8. “Yeah, I Said It”

There can’t be a Rihanna album without a come-hither song, but this one is a slow jam, which is unusual for her. As is the trend with this album, she owns it. Here, she drives home sultry vocals over a similarly sexy piano-driven beat.

9. “Same Ol’ Mistakes”

On this six-minute Tame Impala cover, Ri shows off her pipes. It’s not only a good cover, but also a standout song on the album. With her voice controlling the track, it’s both trippy and introspective. Remember, y’all: she’s not just pop.

10. “Never Ending”

The Dido influence is strong here, with this sad folk song allowing Rihanna to explore an angle we’ve never seen her take. “And I can’t feel my body now. . .It’s pulling me apart this time / it’s never-ending,” she sings, lamenting what it’s like to feel love again without being able to feel it at all. It’s heavy, but the tune is light and listenable.

11. “Love on the Brain”

This track is all #TBT, giving you as much heart-wrenching falsetto and doo-wop as you can handle. “Must be love on the brain / that’s got me feeling this way,” she sings, echoing the heartbroken lyrics of “Stay” with all the catchy rhythm of a ’50s radio track, backup singers and all.

12. “Higher”

At Rihanna’s most Amy Winehouse moment, she sings about whiskey and ashtrays, letting you hear the wear-and-tear on her voice for a brief two minutes. This one is a must-listen, as it feels like an Adele deep cut with Rih’s trademark bad girl edge. It’s both sad and hopeful, triumphant and defeated. Strings add to the drama, giving you the emotion that’s usually only reserved for Rihanna’s social media. Most of all, it’s honest, it’s refreshing, and it’s a win on an album that feels all her own.

13. “Close To You”

The album’s closing track is the closest comparison to “Stay,” but it’s also wholly original for Rihanna. It’s soft, sweet, and stripped, lilting out with her words, “if you let me, I’ll be there by now / close to you.” No hard beat, nothing overpowering. Just Rihanna singing what she wants
