Drake Wins Big At American Music Awards

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

Drake wins big at the American Music Awards.  He has won favorite Hip-Hop artist of the year, again.  He is also a huge fan of Cartier and tinted lenses.  He has been photographed multiple times in eyeglasses with fashion tints of various colors and intensities.  In the featured picture, Drake is wearing a vintage Cartier with a pink tint.  We also think he’s added a flash mirror for extra pop.  Fashion tints are great because they can be worn inside and outside.  They won’t provide the same kind of protection as conventional sunglasses but they are versatile if you own many pairs.  When you are voted most popular hip-hop artist, you probably have multiple pairs at your disposal, including multiple pairs of vintage Cartier.  Congratulations to Drake for another winning year on the American Music Awards and congrats on your stellar eyewear propensity.  Stop by Blink Optical for all your eyewear and lens tinting needs.
