Closed borders and COVID conditions aren't enough of a reason for DJ Khaled to not cajole Drake into makin an awesome video for their collaboration. It does, however, require him to call in a massive favor to get a suitably big Popstar to play his role in this twisty comedic video directed by Julien Christian Lutz pka Director X.
Here's a smart idea: Maroon 5 have a new version of "Girls Like You" that's essentially the same video, but with previously unused footage of all the notable "girls" who strut their stuff around Adam Levine and the guys.
A post-modern excursion where Drake is aware of trying mash-up a Taye Diggs rom-com comedy vibe with a New Orleans escapade, while also dealing with the fact that a viral challenge meme has already impacted in a way that may be more pervasive than the reach of any traditional music video in this Social Media Age.
And while you enjoy the ride, keep an eye out for some guest star appearances and an end credit compliation of some of the more epic Challenge clips.
Every time the camera spins around Adam Levine it's revealed that another notable woman is helping with the lip-sync. The list is massive,and massively impressive,, including pop star Camila Cabello, actress Gal Gadot, gymnast Aly Raisman, talk show star Ellen DeGeneris and most notably, Cardi B — who gets to contribute a verse — and Levine's wife Behati Prinsloo and their daughter.
