Drizzy is clearly in a giving mood!
There's no stopping Drake and his list of good deeds, it seems, after the rapper treated a Miami housekeeper an eye-watering gift this week.
Odalie Paret, a 63-year-old mother-of-five, has worked at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel for more than two decades and commutes for up to four hours a day by bus, reports the Miami Herald.
The Haitian mother-of-five works a 14-room-a-day cleaning shift to support her family - however, her latest shift ended with a massage at the Fontainbealu's spa and a lobster dinner, thanks to a certain rapper.

After Drake read about her story, he teamed up with Steelers player and Miami native Antonio Brown to treat her to a $10,000 shopping spree after a day of well-deserved pampering.
"I always just saw him on the TV. So I said, ‘Drake!’" Paret told the paper on Tuesday. "It made me happy. ... I thank him so much."
After her dinner, Paret was escorted to Saks Fifth Avenue where Drake and Pittsburgh Steelers player Antonio Brown were waiting to greet her.
The rapper teamed up with Brown - a Miami native himself - to arrange the Paret's shopping spree, with Brown documenting the event online.

According to the publication, Paret was given 45 minutes to spend as much money as she wanted on anything she desired at the store, leaving her "frozen".
She left with a $2,000 Valentino purse, four perfumes, a $6,000 18-karat gold and diamond necklace and an $800 pair of flats to wear to church.
"I said, ‘I have to go to church... [I’m not getting] $600 shoes without a strap in the back and flowers!’" Paret explained.
