Too much jokes... @31sterling @jordon_ibe @mb459

A video posted by Official Daniel Sturridge (@dstudge) on


If there was any doubt as to Drake's global influence, we now have video evidence--or at least Vines--to the contrary. Early this morning (Feb. 5), Liverpool players Daniel Sturridge, Mario Balotelli, Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling and Jordan Ibe posted several videos dancing to "Blessings," the new song from Big Sean that features both Drake and Big Sean. The Drake vocals ended up being the background to some of the most starkly impressive dancing of 2015 so far. Can you say Dancing With The Stars?

Drake is no stranger to the beautiful game. In 2013, while on a whirlwind promotional tour for his third album, Nothing Was The Same, Aubrey hit the streets of New York City to pass out copies of FIFA '14, the EA Sports-produced soccer video game. The "Hold On, We're Going Home" rapper actually inked a deal with the software giant; it was mutually beneficial, with the game and album coming out on the same day. And it's not just the business aspect, either--that same month, Drizzy said, “My passion for soccer runs deep," adding that his touring taking him all over the world was a major influence on developing the interest.
